Rice: David Moyes's training has 'been really good'

Moyes watches on at training on Wednesday


‘So far so good’ is the sentiment from Declan Rice after new manager David Moyes completed his first week of training at Rush Green.

Speaking after he collected the award for PL2 October Player of the Month, Rice was full of praise for his new manager who has had an instant impact in his opening few days at West Ham United.

“Training has been really good” the 18-year-old said.

“He’s come in, already spoken to most of the lads and we know how he’s going to work.”

The players have trained each day since Moyes joined the club on Tuesday and Rice admitted the sessions have been tough but is excited about what the future holds.

“The manager had us doing double sessions on Wednesday and that was really tough but we know how he’s going to work and the boys, myself included, are really looking forward to it.”

The squad will rest over the weekend before reconvening on Monday morning ahead of an important week in the build up to Moyes' first match, away to Watford, on 19 November.
