West Ham blow: Declan Rice discovers the length of his European ban

Declan Rice has been handed a ban by UEFA following his outburst to the referee of Frankfurt vs West Ham.

The midfielder was recorded going after the official in the tunnel following the Hammers' exit from the Europa League.

Jesús Gil sent off both Aaron Cresswell and David Moyes during the second-leg in Germany.

Rice's outburst earns him Euro ban

Rice has been given a two-match ban for the incident.

He accused the ref of being corrupt having sent off two people from West Ham.

Cresswell was shown red after just 19 minutes and Moyes was later sent off also in the second half.

The Germans ended up winning the game 1-0 to win 3-1 on aggregate and advance to the final.

Rice will therefore miss the east London club's first two European matches next season.

The Hammers ended up qualifying for the Europa Conference League.

They will be hoping to win the competition having just fallen short in the Europa League last season.
