Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has revealed his “admiration” for West Ham midfielder Declan Rice. The player was labelled as “fantastic” during the pre-match press conference ahead of Manchester City’s clash with the Hammers.

Guardiola was quick to name drop Declan Rice and Antonio as the players who have shone in this West Ham side in his eyes. Speaking to the press ahead of Saturday’s clash, Pep Guardiola said of the West Ham duo.

“What I saw is the rhythm increased a lot on previous seasons. They have fantastic players like Declan Rice. I am a big admirer of him and Antonio is always a headache for his movements,” said Guardiola.

Manchester City are known to be in the market for a midfielder in the coming summer window, and particular in Declan Rice’s position, with the Etihad club already being linked with several names across Europe.
