Declan Rice has revealed that the Arsenal boss made him wear an embarrassing sticker on his first day at the club.
The English midfielder secured a £105 million move to the Emirates Stadium in the summer after helping West Ham clinch the Europa Conference League trophy.
Mikel Arteta does have some peculiar methods and Rice has told the Tubes and Ange Gold Life channel on YouTube of his early experience at the club.
“I was a bit nervous. The first day I was down there on the Sunday, the lads weren’t in but I come out of the physio room and Arteta, just like little things he does, he put like a sticker on me saying ‘hello, I’m the new person’. He just walked in and put it on my chest. All the 18s and 21s in the canteen and I’m walking through trying to hide my chest. Just little things like that.”
