The 22-year-old Hammers midfielder has been truly sensational this season.

In fact, he has been West Ham United’s best player over the past three years by a long, long way.

We have always known just how good Rice is.

The West Ham fans are a knowledgable bunch but that didn’t stop rival fanbases and clueless pundits suggesting that we had it wrong about Dec.

And because of that, it really does feel very satisfying that Rice has proven all of his doubters wrong.

Pundits and rival fans alike are now slowly coming out of the woodwork to praise the 22-year-old.

John Terry makes claim about Declan Rice that proves David Moyes was right all along

The ex-Chelsea skipper was the latest to jump on the Rice bandwagon.

Terry took to Twitter and labelled Dec as the best player in the world in his particular position:

Terry’s comments on Rice prove that the West Ham fans and more importantly, David Moyes had it right all along about Dec.

When Chelsea and Manchester United were linked with a move to sign the 22-year-old 18 months ago, Moyes bullishly declared that it would take ‘Bank of England’ money to prise him away from the London Stadium (Evening Standard).

At the time, that was believed to be around £100 million.

Rice ended up staying with the Hammers and Moyes recently suggested that the chance for any club to sign him for a bargain £100 million fee has now long gone (Eurosport).

The way things are going, it would be no surprise to see Rice stay at the London Stadium for the foreseeable future.

Terry’s comments have confirmed what a special talent we have on our hands at West Ham. We all knew that already of course, as did Moyes. It’s just nice to get the recognition from someone who is so closely connected to one of our biggest rivals!
