Manuel Pellegrini has heaped praise on the progress of youngster Declan Rice after he scored his first goal for West Ham.

“Not only for West Ham, also for the national squad he decides to play.” Pellegrini has been unrelenting in his approach to alter the mentality at West Ham in shifting them towards being a big club, and the Chilean felt Saturday’s performance epitomised that attitude.



Rice, who recently penned a new deal through to 2024, played down comparisons with West Ham legend Bobby Moore this week and revealed that he will make a call on his international future soon after meetings with Gareth Southgate and his Republic of Ireland counterpart Mick McCarthy.



“Very happy for the club and fans that we beat a big club as Arsenal,” he added.

“I am sure that Declan will be a top player,” Pellegrini said.

As I say, we always say we try and play as a big team, have the mentality of a big team and have an ambitious mind.

I think that the team reflects today all what I am talking about.”
