Recall that Rice could have played international football for Ireland, but chose to play for England despite representing the Republic at youth level.

However, in a chat with RTE Sport, McClean noted that is very overrated and not a world class player.

“I think Declan Rice is very overrated.

“Don’t get me wrong, I think he’s a very good footballer, but the way the English media wax lyrical about him is completely over the top. For me, he’s not world class.

“To me world class is someone who gets in every side in the world. I don’t think he does that. I don’t think he gets in the Man City side ahead of Rodri.

“To me Toni Kroos is world class, He dictates the game, Rodri dictates the game, I don’t think Declan Rice does that. Someone who gets it on the half turn, plays passes forward. He’s very good at what he does.”
