Carragher gushed about the former Leicester City player and compared the 26-year-old to two legendary Spurs players in his essay for The Telegraph.
James Maddison is quickly developing into one of my favorite Premier League players because of the way he plays and speaks like a player from the past.
Maddison appears to be the ideal Spurs player, carrying on the legacy of Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne as someone who makes fans happy.
Given Maddison’s early years with the Lilywhites, Carragher’s praise for the England international is very high indeed.
Is James Maddison the next Hoddle or Gascoigne?
The most innovative and dynamic performers of their age, Gascoigne and Hoddle, who both spent time at Tottenham, enthralled audiences with their displays.
Since Christian Eriksen left North London in January 2020, the team has lacked a spark in the middle of the field. Maddison appears to have restored that feeling of anticipation.
Looking back, it appears that Leicester City, who sold Maddison to Tottenham this summer for £40 million, received a good deal.
In the summer transfer window, Tottenham sold Harry Kane to Bayern Munich. The North London club was concerned about the 2023–24 season without the impact and contribution of their all-time leading scorer.
Ange Postecoglou faced a challenging challenge, but the Australian manager showed off his technical acumen by maximizing Tottenham’s assault, who had been playing free-flowing football.
Son Heung-min and Maddison have been the main drivers of Tottenham’s success thus far, and the former Leicester player appears to have developed a fantastic rapport with the South Korean international.
Along with Carragher, Maddison has won over many Tottenham supporters with his obvious talent and love for the North London team. It is hoped that Spurs’ number 10 will extend his winning streak for many more seasons and aid the North London team in ending their trophy drought.
