Tiger Fighting, October 17 News Stuart Pearce, who once played for West Ham United and currently serves as a member of the coaching staff of West Ham United's first team, was interviewed by the media recently. Pierce talked about Rice in the interview. Pierce said that West Ham United definitely does not want to sell Rice, because Rice is the core player in the Moyes plan. Pierce also said that Rice's future strength and value will only increase further, and will not decline.
Pierce mentioned: "I always think so. I only want to play where I like. I won't be affected by money. I just want to enjoy football."
"The biggest motivation in my player era should be to play for the national team. I think Rice thinks the same way. He made a decision before. He is proud to represent the England national team."
"Rice will make a decision, and we are very happy that the team has a captain like Noble. Noble has performed well in the past few years and he is very loyal to the team."
"I hope Rice will continue to play for West Ham for many years and I want to see him lead the team to success."
Rice used to play for the Chelsea youth team, but he left Chelsea at the age of 14 and joined West Ham United. Previously, there was news that Chelsea intended to sign Rice. In this regard, Pierce said: "If you want to become a captain, a player first needs to learn to contribute selflessly.
"A true leader thinks about the team, even if the team's interests sometimes conflict with their own."
"Rice is a very selfless player. He has always put the team before himself. Although Rice is still very young now, he is very mature. I think this explains everything."
"Rice is always ready to contribute to the team, just like most leading players, and that is good for the team. I am not saying that Rice did not perform well in the game, but we want the ball The team’s defensive players can stay calm at all times."
"I think the frontcourt players are the protagonists in the game. Of course, the defensive players also play a very important role, but the defensive players are usually not as prominent as the offensive players.
"The defensive players need to do dirty and tiring work in the game. Whether the team can complete the zero cover is determined by the defensive player, and this is the way of the game."
"We also know that Rice can score goals for the team, but Rice's main job in the team is not offense. We want him to stabilize the team's defense."
"Rice plays an important defensive role in West Ham United and the England national team. He is still very young, but he has done a great job in Rice in the past few seasons."
"West Ham United definitely don't want to sell Rice. He is the core of Moyes' plan for the team. Rice will only become better, his value will only become higher, and it is impossible to decline."
Pierce also talked about his views on current players. He said that none of the players he coached knew his career well. Pierce said: "Most of the players I have coached don’t understand my player era. I think this is normal."
"My job now is to coach the players. I want to maintain a good relationship with the players. The coach must remain open. If a coach denies his own job, then I don't think that coach can lead the team to success. "
