Declan Rice Talks About His True Relationship With Mount
Since returning to Manchester United, midfielder Paul Pogba has always created two opposing opinions because of the instability in form.
In some matches, the French passer created a super performance, making everyone admire. But also many times, Pogba disappointed because he played like a dream.
However, for Declan Rice, the player born in 1992 is one of the best central midfielders in the Premier League. Sharing in a recent interview with BT Sport, the West Ham star said:
“He’s been criticized but honestly, he’s one of the three best players I’ve played against,” Rice said.
“He’s so strong, holds the ball very well. He can take the ball under tremendous pressure and get away with it with an unbelievable skill set.
He knows how to play one and two touches and can make long passes. He is very good and I think you can see his best qualities when he plays for France.
Since Pogba played in the Premier League, there has been a lot of controversy about him, but he is truly talented. My second game for West Ham was at Old Trafford, we lost 0-4. I entered the pitch after half an hour and he made his own performance.
I remember I was in a 50-50 fight with him, I thought ‘what’s wrong with me?’, he’s rock solid, very strong.”
