West Ham United – Declan Rice attacks referee after defeat to Frankfurt: “Bought”

“Referee! It’s so bad! It was so bad all night!” Rice called after the referee. But he didn’t stop. When Gil Manzano didn’t react to Rice, he added, “How can you be so bad? Seriously, you’re fucking bought. It’s fucking corruption!”

What alleged wrong decision referred to the British international remained open. Gil Manzano had rightly shown West Ham defender Aaron Creswell a red card after 19 minutes for an emergency brake, according to VAR images.

Shortly before the end he referred to Hammers manager David Moyes from the inside because the 59-year-old nearly took down a ball boy. Also in this scene there was no alternative to the referee’s decision.

Verbal derailment should not remain without consequences. Rice could be fined or even disqualified if UEFA investigates him. The 23-year-old is unlikely to play for West Ham again next season. Several top clubs, including Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United, are said to be courting the London native.
