Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy has warned James Maddison against bringing his red car, as that would anger the fans
Tottenham Hotspur chairman, Daniel Levy, has jokingly told James Maddison not to bring a ‘red car’ to the club’s training ground.
His outstanding performance earned him the Premier League Player of the Month award for August.
The 26-year-old midfielder’s excellent club form also earned him a spot in England’s starting lineup for their Euro 2024 qualifier against Ukraine during the recent international break.
Despite his impressive performance and goal-scoring start with the Spurs, Maddison received a fun reprimand from Chairman Levy regarding the colour of his car.
Levy humorously revealed that he had jokingly told the former Foxes star not to arrive at training in a red car, as red is the colour associated with their local rivals, Arsenal.
Levy made this lighthearted remark during a press conference ahead of Sunday’s highly anticipated match at the Emirates Stadium.
“James needs to learn that he can’t come to the training ground in a red car. I’ve told him. He’ll learn.”
While there may be discussions about Maddison’s car colour at Spurs, there’s no doubt about his impact on the field.
The English international is emerging as one of the standout signings of the summer, seamlessly integrating into Tottenham’s squad.
He has effectively filled the creative void left by Harry Kane and has excelled in his role as vice-captain.
The experienced playmaker has quickly gained the favour of fans. His creative performances on the field have impressed everyone, and he could win many more Player of the Month awards ahead.
Maddison will be aiming to shine in the upcoming match against Arsenal on Sunday. This will be the attacking midfielder’s first experience of the North London Derby.
