Declan’s classy message

Declan Rice has sent a classy message to Angelo Ogbonna after his injury woe.

The centre-back has sustained an ACL injury which could potentially rule him out for the remainder of the season.

The injury came as he twisted to mark Mohamed Salah in the box against Liverpool at the weekend, as the Hammers recorded a famous 3-2 victory at the London Stadium.

Ogbonna actually tried to continue playing but was substituted after taking a knock to the face, going straight down the tunnel and being replaced by Craig Dawson.

Now, though, the bad news has been confirmed and Rice has taken to Twitter to wish his team-mate well and issue a glowing tribute to his professionalism.

Writing on the social media site, the midfielder said: “We are all with you brother! The fact you even carried on for a couple of minutes shows the type of character you are. Big love oggy.”

It’s likely that Dawson will come in to replace Oggy although David Moyes also has the option of using Issa Diop alongside Kurt Zouma in his backline.
