West Ham United manager David Moyes has urged fans to welcome Declan Rice with ‘open arms‘ and joyfully. Moyes said that it would look ungrateful if they didn’t welcome Rice properly. The Hammers will host Arsenal in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday. Declan will be returning to his former club after a record £105m summer move to Emirates. Moyes was speaking to Sky Sports in the pre-match conference before the Arsenal face off. He said,

“Well I hope he will be back because you’ve got to remember this is the man who lifted the first European trophy in 50 years. So he should be welcomed back with open arms.

“We’re all looking forward to seeing him again. He was a brilliant member of the team, led the team brilliantly well, conducted himself impeccably as a West Ham captain and player in his time here.

I’m really looking forward to seeing Dec, I’ve not seen him since he left. I don’t know if I want him to play but I hope he’s there.

“I think if you see the way Dec conducted himself throughout (his time at West Ham, he shouldn’t get anything other than a good reception). He was involved with the supporters, he was always seen helping the club out when needed.

And the most important thing was that he gave 100 per cent in every game even though we all sort of knew that he’d probably not be staying at West Ham.

All credit to him, he conducted himself brilliantly well and for that alone he deserves to be cheered.
