    What the Dec?

    West Ham star Declan Rice plans to stick with the No41 shirt throughout his career amid links with Manchester United, Chelsea and Arsenal.

    Last year, in an interview with Gary Neville on The Overlap, Rice said: “It was just the number I was given in the academy by the kitman.

    “When you are in the Under-23s there are the first team squad numbers and then it gets to the higher numbers and I was given 41 when I went to Seattle on my first trip with the first team. I was just given 41 and it has stayed with me since.

    “And to be honest with you – I have been having these conversations with my dad – regardless of what happens in my career I may stay with 41.

    “I just think Rice 41 has a nice ring to it and obviously I have grown up playing in it and I am a bit superstitious with things like that. I don’t know if I change to a new number if it will hamper my performances, I don’t know! Sometimes I think about things like that”

    Man Utd takeover
