Arsenal spent a club record £105 million to bring English midfielder Declan Rice to the Emirates last summer. That investment has so far yielded a positive impact.

Declan Rice has undoubtedly made a significant impact in his debut season at Arsenal, seamlessly fitting into the squad and becoming one of the team’s key players.

His stellar performances have elevated Arsenal’s game to new heights this season, earning him praise from fans and pundits alike. However, despite these impressive contributions, Rio Ferdinand suggests that Rice may not measure his success solely by personal achievements.

In a Q&A session on Reddit, Ferdinand, who claims to know Rice personally, revealed that the midfielder is likely to judge himself based on Arsenal’s collective accomplishments this season.


Ferdinand highlighted Rice’s mindset, emphasising that the absence of discussions about his hefty price tag indicates his effectiveness on the pitch.

However, according to Ferdinand, the Arsenal star’s focus lies primarily on the team’s success, rather than individual accolades.

Ferdinand wrote: “Declan Rice. I think that the best way to explain Declan is that no one’s talked about the 100 million pound price tag. That tells you he’s done a lot of stuff right, and he’s been playing well. But I know Declan, and I think he’ll be judging himself on what they win, and rightly so at that level.”

While it might seem demanding, this attitude reflects a commendable dedication to team performance and the pursuit of trophies. Despite receiving individual acclaim, Rice remains grounded, understanding that football is a team sport, and collective achievements outweigh personal recognition.

At the moment, Arsenal lead the English Premier League standings with four matches to go. However, with Manchester City’s fate in their own hands, having played two games less than the Gunners, the season’s outcome remains uncertain.
