The England midfielder was stitched up when his skipper targeted him in a fake video in which his car was “clamped” by an actor.
It’s fair to say that the 20-year-old wasn’t best pleased at all, and his awkward reaction was enough to get Anderson howling by the looks of things.
Writing on his personal Twitter account, he said: “Amazing”, followed by two laughing emojis.
Declan Rice has, over the course of the past couple of seasons, established himself as a firm favourite amongst West Ham fans, and understandably so. The manner in which he has grown into his role in the centre of midfield has been admirable, and his form has backed it up as well. So far this season he has averaged 3.8 tackles, 2.3 interceptions, a pass completion rate of 89.5%, and a Whoscored rating of 7.05 in the Premier League. He is fiercely competitive and mature beyond his years, and his levelheadedness has marked him out as one to watch. He very nearly lost that cool when Noble stitched him up mind, but it’s credit to the young Hammer that he took the whole thing is such good humour, and it’s clear that he has a good head screwed on his shoulders. That will stand him in good stead going forward, no doubt about it.
