‘Such a good player’: Man Utd ace Kobbie Mainoo praises Arsenal star, says he’s a dream to play with

Manchester United wonderkid Kobbie Mainoo has praised Arsenal midfielder Declan Rice in a 2024 European Championship interview for England.

Rice joined the Gunners from West Ham United for a club-record £105 million last summer and he had a fantastic debut season for the club.

The England international was brilliant from the defensive midfield role at the start of the campaign before moving centrally after the turn of the year.

He ended the season with 17 goal contributions. He also completed 91 percent of his passes with an average of 2.2 tackles and four duels won per game.

Rice averaged five recoveries per outing. The midfielder came second behind Martin Odegaard for the Player of the Season award.

Speaking in today’s press conference for England, Mainoo said that Rice has lived up to his hefty price tag since joining Arsenal.

He said: “Everyone knows he’s worth every penny. He’s such a good player. He’s proved it in the Premier League and internationally.

“[Playing with him] frees me up a lot and allows me to go forward and attack and trust that he’s there. It’s a dream.”
