David Gold sends message to Rice

David Gold has sent a message to Declan Rice on Twitter, hailing the defensive midfielder.

The Hammers star made his 100th Premier League appearance against Newcastle in the 2-0 defeat, a remarkable achievement for the 21-year-old.

Rice, of course, broke into the team back in 2017 and has gone on to play 110 times for the club, playing in every single Premier League game in 2019/20.

And Gold hailed the England international on Twitter, writing: “I would like to congratulate Declan on his 100th Premier League appearance for West Ham United – a magnificent achievement. I am very proud of him and he epitomises everything that this great football club stands for.”

Rice, of course, has been heavily linked with a move away from the club in the summer transfer window, as old club Chelsea reportedly sniff around their former charge to cap off a very busy summer.

However, with messages like this, it seems the resolve to keep him at West Ham is as strong as ever, and that it will take something genuinely exceptional to take him away from the London Stadium.

Here’s to 100 more, Declan, in the claret and blue!

  1. I am probably being cynical but this is likely to be an attempt to bump his sale price up.

  2. If they really want to keep him they should make him Captain and prove that they will build a team round him . Time for Noble to step aside . The biggest contribution Noble can make to the cause is to retire and let Rice take over . Cullen was very good last night and will more than make up for Noble’s absence as he contributes nothing .

  3. thats exactly what they want us to think so when he’s sold to Chelski he can plead how much he wanted Rice to stay but “the player wanted to leave”

  4. Stay at West Ham and battle every season to avoid relegation, or , at best, make top ten. Never win anything. Have perpetual controversy and unrest disrupting the team.
    Move to Chelsea. Win trophies. Play with some of the best players in the world, including my lifelong best pal. Training just down the road to my house. Triple my wages. Play for the club that all my family support.
