Pedro Neto has been outstanding for Wolves this season, contributing six assists and one goal. Check out his top moments this season.
Gary O’Neil reminisces about the first time he noticed James Maddison’s talent during a training session at Norwich City in 2016. Maddison’s career has flourished since he made his breakthrough at Norwich during the 2017/18 season under Daniel Farke, leading to a £22 million transfer to Leicester. He recently made the switch to Tottenham during the most recent summer transfer window, concluding a five-year stint with the Foxes.
At present, Spurs are leading the Premier League and maintaining an undefeated streak in their first nine matches, with Maddison contributing to eight goals. He became a vital part of Ange Postecoglou’s revolution at Tottenham this summer, receiving acclaim for his contributions to their strong start, including scoring in their 2-0 victory over Fulham on a Monday night.
Watching that game from a TV studio was former Norwich midfielder and current Wolves manager Gary O’Neil, who briefly played alongside Maddison during his early days at Carrow Road. O’Neil shared his impressions on Monday Night Football, recalling how Maddison’s confidence was evident when he rejoined Norwich after a loan spell at Coventry. Maddison had an unwavering belief in his abilities and a strong work ethic, without coming across as overly confident or arrogant.
Following that season, O’Neil left Norwich to join Bristol City, while Maddison went on loan to Aberdeen in the subsequent season. O’Neil has since transitioned to a managerial role and has won three out of his first nine games in charge of Wolves after his tenure as Bournemouth’s boss was cut short in the summer.
Maddison is striving for consistency as he continues to shine for Spurs in their pursuit of improvement under Postecoglou.
