West Ham star Declan Rice took to Twitter in praise of Toni Kroos:

And Kroos responded to the Hammers ace:

Declan Rice is arguably the best defensive midfielder in the Premier League.

 

The 22-year-old will undoubtedly continue to get better and better.

And learning form the likes of Real Madrid ace Toni Kroos will help Rice on his way to becoming a true superstar in the game.

The 31-year-old German has won all there is to win in the game.

His trophy cabinet consists of three Bundesliga titles, two La Liga titles, four Champions Leagues and a World Cup winner’s medal.

If Rice goes on to enjoy even half of the success that Kroos has, he will have a superb career in the game.

And let’s hope he remains at West Ham for the rest of his time playing!
