Midfielder opens door to possible Chelsea move after latest statement
When asked whether playing in Qatar has given him new aspirations in the league and in Europe, Rice said in a press conference: “Yeah, 100 per cent. For the last two or three years I have been saying that.
“I have been playing consistently well for [my] club and I feel like I really want to keep pushing.
“I see my friends here who are playing in the Champions League and for big trophies… you only get one career and at the end of your career you want to look back at what you have won and the biggest games you have played in.
“I am really ambitious.”
Look – Rice is ready for that next step in his career and make a move to a big club – and West Ham fans will not surely not begrudge him that opportunity?
