Kieran Trippier believes Declan Rice is a better player than Thomas Partey and Casemiro.
Rice’s future remains in contention. The West Ham captain is expected to leave the club this summer, while David Moyes believes the English midfielder will be worth more than the £107m of Enzo Fernandez.
Arsenal have reportedly made Rice their top target this summer. While Chelsea and Manchester United are also monitoring the 24-year-old’s situation.
Ask who was better between Partey and Rice, Trippier told Rio Ferdinand via the “Declan because it’s amazing.”
“I don’t know if you watched the game the other day when we played West Ham. But look at the wit. Destroying the opponent’s offensive game and his strength it’s amazing He could be one of the best players in the world in his position.
Ferdinand then asked Trippier if he would choose Casemiro or Rice, with the Newcastle right-back once again picking up his international team-mate.
“As a defender like me or even yourself, you absolutely admire Michael Carrick or what Declan is doing,” said Trippier.
“It makes your job easier when they just clean up everything. Don’t get me wrong, Casemiro, with the championship he won. including the Champions League He is a world class player. But if you talk about it now, Deck is amazing.”
