‘The perfect fit’… Harry Redknapp says ‘quality’ 27-year-old looks born to play for Tottenham

James Maddison has been utterly brilliant so far for Tottenham this season.

The England international has come in and immediately established himself as Spurs’ star player. So much so that we’ve barely even spoken about Harry Kane’s absence.

Maddison looks right at home in a Tottenhamshirt, and speaking on Kammy and Ben’s Proper Football Podcast, Harry Redknapphas been hailing the 27-year-old.

Indeed, Redknapp has been full of praise for Maddison, stating that it looks like the perfect fit, comparing Maddison to the likes of Luka Modric and Rafael Van der Vaart as a midfield player who can just make things happen.

Maddison born to play for Spurs

Redknapp spoke about the midfielder.

“Good yeah, they look good. They have good players. Some good signings, Maddison is a good signing, Maddison at Tottenham is the perfect fit, he’s their type isn’t he? They’ve had their Modric’s, their Van der Vaart’s, players who can do things and he’s a quality player Maddison, he’s a fantastic footballer. They brought in another centre-half to go with the Argentinian boy, he looks strong and quick,” Redknapp said.

Perfect for Tottenham

It has to be said that Maddison is a Tottenham player to a tee.

For as long as most fans can remember, Spurs have been all about these mercurial creative midfield players, from Glenn Hoddle to Paul Gascoigne all the way to the likes of Van der Vaart and Christian Eriksen.

Maddison is the next in this long line of incredible creative midfielders, and it’s fair to say that he’s well on his way to forging his own legacy at Tottenham.

It’s no surprise that Spurs fans have already fallen in love with Maddison, he’s perfect for their club, and we’re so excited to see what the future holds for the 27-year-old in north London after such a bright start.
