‘He’s The Most Miserable And Negative Pundit Ever’ ‘He’s Bitter’ Fans Defend West Ham Star After Keane’s Harsh Criticism

Former Manchester United and Republic of Ireland midfielder Roy Keane has criticised West Ham star Declan Rice’s recent form and has outlined a number of areas where the 20-year-old needs to improve.

Speaking ahead of England’s 4-0 win over Kosovo last night, the TV pundit pulled no punches when analysing the deficiencies in the Hammers star’s game:

“Where he needs to improve, where do you want me to start? His positional play, I don’t think he’s been consistent enough, he doesn’t stay with runners, he’s sloppy in possession, I can go on.”



“He’s one of these players who people were enjoying and loved but he’s one of these players that has almost played his way out of the team because he’s not been consistent at West Ham.”

Supporters on Twitter think Keane is being very harsh on Rice with many believing the midfielder’s decision to switch allegiance from Ireland to England may be behind the heavy criticism:

Rice looked pretty solid against Kosovo, and while it’s fair to say that the midfielder isn’t at the top of his game at the moment, he certainly was by no means the worse performer on the pitch.

Every young player goes through peaks and troughs in form and the England international will be looking to come through the other side of this dip a better player.
