Declan Rice’s adult comments congratulating West Ham on their success in the European Conference League have forced the BBC to apologize for bad language during an interview with the Hammers captain.
The West Ham stars celebrated their success in Europe with an open-top bus parade around London’s East End as thousands of supporters joined in the celebrations.
The tired-eyed Rice, who was partying late in Prague with his teammates after Wednesday’s win over Fiorentina, wore the club’s home strip and winner’s medal for an interview. There was no sign of a hangover.
The 24-year-old England midfielder has described West Ham as ‘fucking big’ and shows his passion for the club he expects to leave in the summer.
“I’m speechless,” Rice cried as he was being interviewed outside Stratford City Hall.

“I hear Billy Bonds, I hear Bobby Moore, and now I’m going to lift the trophy for this football club… it’s honestly still a mystery to me, but it’s really special. I really believe. I was speechless.”
His first bombshell prompted the station to quickly apologize for its pre-turnaround language, after which Mr. Rice delivered another emotional statement.
“We’ve had European competitions for the second year in a row and they’ve traveled all over the world to watch us in pre-season Europe, but to be honest there are so many people here tonight. I didn’t expect to come together.
“But here at West Ham, we’re insanely strong, aren’t we?!” Yes! ‘
Rice was released by Chelsea at the age of 14 and has since been recruited as a loyal Hammers player who has watched him grow from academy talent to trophy-lifting captain.
Arsenal are set to submit a £90million bid for the box-to-box star in the near future and the midfielder is gearing up for a summer departure.
