James McClean doesn’t think Declan Rice is a ‘world class’ footballer.

Rice moved from West Ham to Arsenal last summer for a staggering £105 million and helped the Gunners secure a respectable second place in the Premier League.

But, speaking on RTE Sport McClean claimed the English media are giving Rice too much credit for his performances and made a comparison with Toni Kroos and Rodri.

He said: ‘I think Declan Rice is 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.’
