Sky Sports pundit reacts to James Maddison impact at Tottenham

Tottenham Hotspur signed James Maddison from Leicester City earlier this summer.

The 26-year-old attacking midfielder has hit the ground running at his new club and his performances have surprised Sky Sports pundit Gary Rowett. Rowett has now revealed that Maddison’s start to life at Tottenham has left him surprised and the 26-year-old has been very impressive so far.

The 26-year-old showed his quality in the Premier League with Leicester City in the past and he has adapted to life at his new club with ease.

Maddison has already established himself as an important first-team player for Tottenham and he has picked up two goals and two assists in the league so far. He will be hoping to help Tottenham challenge for trophies this season and Rowett believes that Spurs could be genuine contenders for a top-four finish.

“We have seen the impact Maddison has made,” said Rowett (h/t HITC). “Maddison has surprised me a little bit. I knew what a good player he was.

“But he looks like he has come alive. And it looks like they could challenge for the top four.”

Maddison is well-settled in English football and he will look to build on his impressive start to life at Tottenham. The 26-year-old has all the tools to develop into a reliable performer for club and country over the years and Tottenham will hope that he can build on his impressive start and improve as the season progresses.

Tottenham missed out on Champions League qualification last season and they will be desperate to get back into the top four. Players like Maddison will be crucial to their hopes of Champions League qualification.

Tottenham sanctioned the departure of Harry Kane earlier this summer and they will need to replace his creative and goalscoring output. Although they have decided not to bring in a prolific goalscorer in the absence of Kane, they decided to replace his creativity with the signing of Maddison.

The 26-year-old has certainly lived up to the expectations so far and he will be expected to develop into an indispensable asset for the club now. Maddison will look to establish himself as a regular starter for England as well, especially with the European championships coming up next summer.
