Video: Declan Rice goes on disgraceful rant in tunnel after West Ham defeat

Posted by

West Ham’s dream of winning the Europa League came to an end on Thursday night as the Premier League side fell at the semi-finals stage at the hands of Bundesliga side Eintracht Frankfurt. 

The Hammers were knocked out 3-1 on aggregate and the night as a whole was an emotional one for everybody involved.

It started with Aaron Cresswell being sent off in the first half of the match, whilst West Ham boss David Moyes was sent off for kicking a ball at a ball boy and now, to add to this, a video of Declan Rice has come to light showing the midfielder abusing the referee after his performance.

The 23-year-old is seen telling Spanish referee Jesús Gil Manzano how poor he was all night and even hints at corruption.

This isn’t a good look for Rice and it is disgraceful that the Englishman had the audacity to question the referee’s integrity in public. The ref had a tough job to do on an emotional occasion and no official deserves to be harassed like this after the final whistle.

  1. Meanwhile appalling refereeing standards go on-which can decide clubs futures. That is equally appalling as you say with Rice reaction.

    1. Not even an appalling Reaction, everyone’s entitled to free speech the Ref was poor the whole night like it has been in every Europa League game this season, we literally had a ref known to match fix against Lyon so a serious investigation on the Refs seriously needs to happen how can every ref be appalling VAR won’t even check things that lead to a goal. this journalist clearly isn’t a west ham fan and the bias shows. if klopp did it hed probably sing his name in praise.

  2. Maybe when someone of Rice’s stature, honesty and integrity says it you should listen, instead of calling it it disgraceful. Maybe the refereeing and your response is disgraceful.
