James Maddison put in yet another sterling display for Tottenham Hotspur this weekend in the win over Bournemouth, prompting Gary Lineker to take to social media and claim the Lilywhites have made an incredible signing.
With two victories and a draw through the first three games of the Premier League season, new manager Ange Postecoglou has had a very outstanding start to his tenure as Tottenham manager.
Spurs fans are grinning once more after a convincing 2-0 victory away at Bournemouth in the early Saturday kickoff. It was another exhilarating, powerful performance from the entire team at the Vitality Stadium.
The victory for Postecoglou’s team was secured by goals from James Maddison and Dejan Kulusevski, but it is the former who has received the most accolades from both critics and supporters.
This past weekend, the 26-year-old midfielder scored his first goal for his new team in addition to two assists in the opening match against Brentford. Let’s just say that Maddison has already shown himself to be a superb acquisition, making his £40 million asking price seem like a bargain.
Gary Lineker praises Tottenham’s James Maddison
It is hardly surprising that Gary Lineker, a former Tottenham and Leicester City striker, praised the playmaker after witnessing Maddison orchestrate things once more for Spurs against Bournemouth.
After the game, Lineker simply wrote on Twitter, “Spurs fans, you’ve got one helluva player in [James Maddison].”
We all likely agreed that paying £40 million for Maddison was a decent deal at the time, but his quick start in these first few matches has revealed just how good of a deal we truly got.
He truly gets under our skin and is such a threat moving ahead. He is also showing excellent leadership qualities, which makes him a very useful asset for us this season.
