In the most recent Leicester City news, Peter Schmeichel has offered his thoughts on James Maddison following Maddison’s transfer to Tottenham Hotspur. Schmeichel, whose son Kasper was a teammate of Maddison at Leicester, revealed that Maddison’s behavior had “really upset” him during his time with the Foxes.
Having spent five seasons at Leicester, Maddison scored 55 goals in 203 appearances before his £40 million move to Tottenham this past summer. Schmeichel cautioned Maddison that there are certain requirements at Tottenham and emphasized that there is no room for a “luxury player” in the team. He also expressed concerns about some of Maddison’s actions during his time at Leicester.
Schmeichel spoke about the suitability of Ange as the manager for Maddison, highlighting the style of football that aligns well with the midfielder’s skills. However, he stressed the importance of hard work and teamwork, suggesting that Maddison had at times failed in these aspects during his time at Leicester, exhibiting behavior such as diving and being overly focused on individual play.
Schmeichel believes that at a club like Tottenham, which he considers bigger than Leicester, Maddison has a better opportunity to realize his significant potential, given the managerial expectations and the requirements of the team.
