Arsenal star Declan Rice mocked after being spotted awkwardly ‘playing up to cameras' in Champions League training | The Sun
ARSENAL star Declan Rice has been mocked by rival fans after being spotted "playing up for the cameras" in Champions League training.
Arsenal will host PSV Eindhoven in Europe's premier club competition at the Emirates Stadium tonight.
There could be several Champions League debutants for Arsenal tonight, one being the club-record £105million signing Rice.
The England international has achieved huge success already in Europe by captaining West Ham to the Conference League title last season.
Prior to tonight's game, Rice had been panned for his reaction to being handed an Adidas Champions League ball which Arsenal were training with.
A video of Rice was posted on Twitter captioned "Find someone who looks at you like Declan Rice looks at the Champions League ball."
