Tottenham Hotspur midfielder James Maddison has confessed how he felt when he failed to play due to injury.
Madison has grown into one of the top attacking midfielders in the English Premier League (EPL) for Leicester City. Along with veteran striker Jamie Vardy, he has become a key resource for Leicester. During his four years with Leicester, Madison scored 55 goals and 41 assists in 203 official matches.
Madison moved to Tottenham Hotspur during the summer transfer window last year. Taking advantage of Leicester’s relegation to the second tier, Tottenham embraced Madison for a relatively reasonable 40 million pounds (about 67 billion won). When Harry Kane left, he took over the number 10. Prior to the opening of this season, he was appointed as a vice-captain who supported Son along with center back Christian Romero. 스포츠토토
Madison perfectly lived up to Tottenham’s expectations. He instilled the creativity he lacked in Tottenham’s midfield after the departure of Christian Eriksen, a member of the DESK line. Madison has become an irreplaceable resource for Tottenham due to his outstanding through-pass ability and attacking development. He has three goals and six assists in 15 games this season.
Madison also had some tough times at Tottenham. He was substituted after injuring his ankle in a league-round 11 match against Chelsea in November last year. The injury forced Madison to stay out of the team for about three months.
Madison opened up about the horrors of long-term injuries. He spoke about his feelings about returning to the ground during an appearance on a YouTube channel. “Obviously, he has a different schedule and different days off than other players. One of the advantages was spending more time with his family,” Madison said.
Madison added, “But I watched all the home games in person. I wanted to cheer for the players. But it’s terrible. I’m very nervous watching the team compared to when I was playing on the field. If I’m on the ground, it can affect the game.”
