Ange Postecoglou heaps praise on Tottenham’s James Maddison

James Maddison has been praised by his new manager.


James Maddison joined Tottenham from Leicester City over the summer after the Foxes’ relegation.

Following his arrival, Maddison was given the no.10 shirt, previously worn by Harry Kane.

And whilst that is a hard mantle to take up, Maddison is doing an excellent job so far.

His latest outing saw him score his first goal in a Tottenham shirt as the Lilywhites ran out 2-0 winners.

Speaking after the match, Postecoglou was full of praise for his no.10: “There wasn’t anyone happier than me when we got him. I was delighted. I wouldn’t say I’m surprised, but I’m overjoyed at the footballer I’ve got. The way he’s embraced the whole club, where he’s at in his life. He really wants to be the person.

“He’s that creative force for us. He works hard, wins the ball back, presses. He’s had a disrupted week. He only had one session with us, but for him to put on a performance like that is credit to him. And I think there’s more to come, when he gets more understanding with our forward players and they get more understanding with him.”

“We’re trying to give him and the other creative players as much as the ball as possible for them to do the stuff that they love to do. I think the way definitely suits him.”
