Declan Rice has opened up on his love for West Ham after we were crowed European champions in Prague in a historic night for the club.
It’s a night we all shall savour forever after watching our boys from the East End of London overthrow Fiorentina to lift our first major trophy in 43 years, sparking incredible scenes all over the world.
West Ham are now champions of the Europa Conference League and have subsequently qualified once again for the Europa League next season, making it the 3rd time on the spin for our Hammers playing on the European stage.
Declan Rice lifted the trophy in what would be a fitting end to his time at the club, but he dismissed reports of an exit by exclaiming his love for West Ham and being captain of our Hammers.
“There is a lot of speculation on about my future,” stated our captain, as reported in the Daily Mail.
“There is interest from other clubs, that’s out there. But ultimately, I’ve still got two years left at West Ham. I love this club. I love playing for this club.
“There hasn’t been anything yet. My focus is on playing for West Ham, enjoying tonight, and seeing what happens. I’m captain of this club. I absolutely love it to pieces.
“I cannot speak highly enough of this place. Let’s just see what happens. Let’s wait and see. Who knows?”
Should it be Rice’s last game for West Ham it will be a fitting end to his time at the club, by lifting our first European trophy since 1965, pitting his place alongside Bobby Moore.
West Ham are now set for a trophy winning parade in Stratford today following the victory, with details set to be disclosed soon so fans can celebrate the famous moment for our wonderful club.
