West Ham captain Rice praises Silkeborg after Conference win

West Ham United captain Declan Rice praised Silkeborg after last night’s Europa Conference League win.

The Danes pushed West Ham all the way before the Irons eventually won 2-3.

“We won the match, which is positive. We should have made it easier than what it was. Credit to Silkeborg. A good team. They moved the ball around well and that gave us some problems,” Rice told TV 2.

“They have some really good players. Of course, we watched a lot of videos this week so we knew their qualities. The most important thing is that we won.

“It was a comfortable performance if we take the last quarter away.”
