CandH Exclusive by Hugh Southon
Hammers co chairman David Gold has slammed Roy Keane’s regular blasts at Declan Rice declaring: “Don’t you think it’s time you got over things.”
Gold believes the former Manchester United midfielder’s damning comments on aspects of the Hammers star’s ability and dismissed them as “arrogant, outrageous and unfair” when aimed at a 20 year old who admits he’s still learning the game.
Speaking exclusively to ClaretandHugh Gold said: “Keane needs to get over it. Declan made his choice and I think that is what’s behind it as far as Keane is concerned.
“It’s pretty shameful when a former professional talks the way h did about a young man. It was low, outrageous unfair and arrogant to pick him out of all the England players.
It wasn’t even an analysis of the boy who is 20 years old who has barely started his career in the international team for God’s sake.
“This isn’t the first time he’s done it. In a previous game he said he should be sitting in the studio with the pundits rather than being on the pitch. Shocking! Declan has chosen to play for England and Roy Keane needs to get over that.”
Roy Keane is a self centred turk who needs to remember how good he was when he started I had never heard of him till he played for united. Leave the young lad alone let him become the player that we no he can be.
Why pick an Irishman to comment on an England match anyway. Comes across as arrogant and miserable on tv too. Surely there are better pundits out there?
Just ignore the man ! He is only on the media to be controversial and stir up fans .
If he doesn’t get any reactions then he will soon get get dropped by TV
I believe the time has come for Roy Keane to be removed from the “pundits” chair.Can’t understand why he’s there in the first place! Don’t forget Keane had some role in coaching Declan in the past.If that’s what he thinks of him he didn’t do a very good job.Seems to be a trait in Keane’s life,failed manager,failed coach,failed pundit and even when he was playing he admitted to trying to maim Alfie Inge Haaland.Even got himself sent home from the Irish squad by
Mick McCarthy.Some role model eh? No wonder Declan chose England.
Let’s be honest the lad had a decent game involved in the build up for 3 goals made some good challenges . His distribution was good and made a fantastic block towards the end . Keane is completely out of order & if I’m not mistaken was watching a different Rice to me. Just ignore him Dec he is angry he would be praising you if you were playing for Ireland . Keep it up son & let’s give it everything against Spurs .
