CHECK THIS OUT: On Declan Rice’s first day at Arsenal, Mikel Arteta applied a humiliating sticker to him

Declan Rice joined Arsenal in July after the Gunners spent a club-record £105 million on the midfielder’s transfer from West Ham.
However, Mikel Arteta still pulled a practical joke on Declan Rice despite his status as a club star.

Declan Rice was forced to wear an embarrassing sticker on his first day at Arsenal after joining from West Ham by Mikel Arteta.

As Arteta’s top priority for the summer transfer window, Arsenal paid the Hammers £105 million to acquire Rice in July. He has adapted well to his new team, scoring an important goal in the club’s recent stunning 3-1 victory over Manchester United.

The situation was very different at first, but Rice now appears to be completely at ease with his new teammates.
In an interview with former Soccer AM presenter Tubes and ex-midfielder Jimmy Bullard on the Tubes and Ange Golf Life YouTube channel, Rice discussed Arteta’s unusual method of integrating him on his first day.

Rice responded, “You play against these guys twice a season and if you get them in the cup, three times, when asked if he was nervous meeting his new teammates.
you extend a handshake to them.
Additionally, the guys already know who you are because you play at an international level. But that initial impression never goes away.

“I had some trepidation.
I arrived there for the first time on a Sunday.
The guys weren’t there, but as soon as I left the physiotherapy room, Arteta stuck a sticker on me that read, “Hello, I’m the New Person,” just like he does with other little things. He placed it on my chest as soon as he entered the room.
‘I’m the new boy,’ said Will from The Inbetweeners, who was surrounded by everyone who was under the age of 18 and 21. And I’m moving around while attempting to cover my chest.
Just such minor details.

“And then, when I saw the boys, I noticed that everyone was seated at breakfast, that you train, and that you were all settled in.”.

Rice received his high-profile transfer early in the window, giving him time with his new team during preseason.
He spoke about his feelings about leaving West Ham for the Gunners while on the golf course.

On his first day at the club, Declan Rice was required to wear a sticker by Mikel Arteta.

He said, “Honestly, it’s been crazy; it’s been a whirlwind.
“A summer of highs and lows.
Since I’ve only been there for two months, it is obvious that the move was successful, but I have so far had a great time.
I’m getting better and learning a lot, which is great for me.”.

Rice left West Ham for a variety of reasons, including the chance to play in the Champions League for the first time later this month, but he still struggled with the transition. The 24-year-old spent ten years with the team and was in many ways sad to leave.

He recently told Channel 4: “I really can’t explain the feelings, people leave clubs and lose affiliations with that club.
“I still communicate with the players frequently.
At the beginning of the season, I texted the manager to wish him luck.

“He replied to my text. Our relationship is good.
We are still conversing with each other all the time at the club, and I never want it to be any other way.
