In an attempt to evoke wonderful memories, Declan Rice has shared a message on social media directed only for West Ham supporters.
Declan Rice and Craig Dawson would both be popular choices if asked by West Ham supporters to select their two favorite players from the club’s incredible recent past.
For family reasons, Ballon Dawson had to relocate farther north, therefore West Ham were obliged to sell him to Wolves for a pitiful £3.5 million.
In the summer, the team was almost forced to transfer Rice to Arsenal for £105 million after he made it apparent he would not be signing a new deal with the Hammers.
Although they were valued at almost £100 million apart on the transfer market, both were invaluable to West Ham during an exceptional time under David Moyes.
The fact that Dawson shined for Wolves and cemented his image as a cult hero during his time in east London continues to fill Hammers supporters with pride.
With Rice’s choice to press for a transfer to a London rival like Arsenal, things are a little different for certain West Ham supporters.
However, his most recent social media activity seems to be specifically targeted at Hammers fans.
Rice has shared a sentiment on social media that is intended just for West Ham supporters and will bring back wonderful memories.
Following Arsenal’s victory over Wolves, Rice shared a photo of himself hugging Dawson in the tunnel on his Instagram Stories.
“Happy to see this legend once more!” Rice stated with the image and a heart-shaped emoji.
“What a dude, I miss you, buddy.”
For West Ham supporters, it’s enough to make them cry with nostalgia.
Looking at Rice’s essay really brings back memories of that night in Lyon.
Though it’s not something Gunners supporters would be interested in, it’s good to see Dec openly interacting with West Ham supporters among his fan base.
Let’s hope that this season, West Ham can create new memories with the existing squad.
