‘Rice Is Off Then’ ‘Laughing Stock Of A Football Club’ Fans React To Rumour About Identity Of Next West Ham Captain

Tomas Soucek could well be named captain in the absence of Mark Noble if the Czech Republic international stays at West Ham, according to reports in England.

Noble is unlikely to play every game next season as his career winds down and it is believed Soucek is seen as a future leader by members of the club’s coaching staff.

The 25-year-old has only played four games for the Hammers, but he will sign on a permanent basis for £13m at the end of the campaign if the Hammers stay in the Premier League.



Supporters on Twitter can’t understand why Soucek would be given the responsibility:

As fans point out, it would have implications for Declan Rice as well. While some will say the 21-year-old is simply too young for the role, others will assume that it means the club are intending to sell him.

Manager David Moyes has already raised the prospect of offloading the midfielder in recent months.
