Declan tweets his ‘mistake’ explanation

Declan Rice has quickly described his feelings after the error of judgement between himself and Joe Hart which handed Arsenal a soft goal.

The 19 year old had been in impressive form again until a fatal error which handed the Gunners their second goal as they led again after seeing an early goal equalised by Arnie.

Nobody needs to tell the teenager  of the error or labour it because he is very aware that it was down to him rather than Joe Hart as he allowed the ball to pass over him believing the stopper had it covered.

And after the game he to to Twitter explaining his thoughts on a boob which left him in anguish.

His tweet said:  1 hour ago

I’m young.. I’ll make mistakes.. it’s all a leaning process to get to the top. thank you too the fans again who were brilliant❤⚒ ready to bounce back next week.

  1. He obviously knows Rice is a level-headed realistic boy, so he is very straight with him. The fact that he does it in public, is no problem because he just brings it into the open and he knows Rice can and will deal with it.
    Rice new what he had done immediately. He gave Arsenal the momentum to go on and win the match.
    People should not worry so much about Rice. He’s a big strong boy, who is not scared by the truth.

  2. Completely agree. I trust that Moyes understands the inner workings of each player better than we do, and will have ‘dug him out’ in public because he can handle it, and will use it to become a better player. We all saw it, and Dec knows it, so to not comment on what was a pivotal moment in the match would’ve seen others criticise Moyes for being soft on him.

    I don’t worry about Rice. It’s not his first mistake this season, and it won’t be his last in a West Ham shirt. Everything about him is class, as is the way he’ll learn from experience.
