“It’s been everything I expected from Arsenal” — Declan Rice



"It’s been everything I expected from Arsenal" -- Declan Rice

Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice has reflected on the recently concluded season and his conversation with the club’s co-chairman, Josh Kroenke, following the Gunners’ narrow miss on the Premier League title to Manchester City.

After Arsenal’s victory over Everton on Sunday, Rice and his teammates were left disheartened upon learning that Manchester City had secured their win against West Ham United, thereby clinching the title. Arsenal had hoped for a slip-up from City in the final round to seize the top spot, but Pep Guardiola’s side maintained their dominance.

Despite the season ending in disappointment for the second consecutive year, Rice, who joined Arsenal from West Ham for £105 million last summer, expressed optimism about his inaugural year with the club.

Speaking to NBC Sports, Rice recounted his conversation with Kroenke on the pitch, stating,

“I was just speaking to Josh Kroenke on the pitch. I told him, ‘It’s been everything I expected.’ The class and professionalism of the club are phenomenal, from top to bottom. The way everything is run, the staff, the management – it’s an amazing place.”
