Mikel Arteta crediting Declan Rice
Under Mikel Arteta’s guidance, Arsenal has become more robust and structured, addressing prior vulnerabilities. Rice’s impact was pivotal in their win against Manchester City, where he made an early goal-line clearance. Arteta rightly likened Rice to a lighthouse illuminating his teammates.
While West Ham’s form has faltered, Rice’s departure remains justified, as he seeks regular Champions League action and major honors.
