Cresswell receives abuse on social media

Aaron Cresswell has received abuse from supporters on social media over comments he made over teammate Declan Rice.

Carrying out a contractually obliged interview on Talk Sport yesterday Cresswell was asked about Declan Rice.

Cressie said “I think as sitting midfield, there isn’t many as good as him in the country. For his age he is one of the best in the Premier League already, I am not just saying that because he is a West Ham player and good mate of mine, I really do believe he is one of the top talents in the country”.

“I don’t like to say, I wouldn’t like to see him leave but if he does leave, he could get to another level with better players around him”

‘He’s come in at centre back the last couple of games due to the injuries we have had, he can certainly play either, its a great option but in terms of ability, he’s a fantastic player.”

Claret and Hugh say:

Cresswell was being honest and said what we all already knew, Rice would become a better player with better players around him, that is obvious to everyone.

His comments have been taken out of context and used against him, he was stating an opinion, he didn’t suggest Rice should leave, in fact he made it clear he doesn’t want him to leave.  He has just stated well-known facts and his treatment on social media by some supporters in the last twenty-four hours seems a little harsh.

  1. With some people it is all about showing how stupid they are. This is a case in point. Well done – mission achieved !

  2. Morons …. Would they prefer he said that Chelsea etc are not as good as Hammers players . He would then be the one looking stupid instead of these idiots .

  3. We are 17th & are utter rubbish, doesn’t take a genius to work out he would be better at a bigger team. Cresswell is only saying what everyone knows

  4. Shouldn’t get abuse but he doesn’t need to encourage it.
    “If it’s not broke, don’t fix it”

  5. 100% should not suffer abuse for his honest opinion and yes he is probably correct, but he should not in my opinion be putting this out there. This is the big problem I’ve always had with our club is that we do seem to have a negative mentality in regards to other teams and players, games to be played etc. We need to instill a better belief, positivity, mentality. Pelle for all his faults I think did recognise this, his mantra being big club, team etc and tried to change the mentality at the club. We do have real talent at the club add some pace and a few tweaks and we should be challenging top six all day long. Let’s get this mess of a relegation dogfight out of the way then onwards and upwards
