“I’d love to see” – Micah Richards hails “outstanding” player at Tottenham

Sky Sports pundit Micah Richards has hailed one “outstanding” Tottenham Hotspur player and says he would “love to see” him in an important role.

Spurs form and results

For Spurs and manager Ange Postecoglou, the timing of the international break couldn’t have been worse. The Lilywhites had won six of their first eight Premier League games and were on a roll. The north Londoners’ hiring of Postecoglou from Celtic has so far proven to be one of their most well-liked managerial appointments in recent years. They are now unbeaten, which is their best start to a season since 1960–1961.

Postecoglou has greatly surprised former Arsenal star and England international Ian Wright, who recently said that the Australian has entirely changed them.

“It’s undervalued,” Wright remarked on October 2 to Premier League productions.”He is currently making an underappreciated effort. Huge admirers of Ange Postecoglou. He needs to start strong, many said from the beginning, in my memory. You want the players he has to perform well, win some games, and other things. But I didn’t anticipate it to be there so quickly or in the grove it is today.

“Not only psychologically, but also physically. We are evaluating a team that will only get stronger with Bentancur’s comeback since they are masters at what they do.

Under Postecoglou, members of the Spurs team are also having their best stretch of play in a very long time, with players like Yves Bissouma, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski finding fresh life. Indeed, summer acquisitions like Micky van de Ven and James Maddison have prospered as well.

Tottenham – James Maddison news

Former midfielder Jermaine Jenas, speaking to TNT Sports recently, told the broadcaster that the “top-class talent” Maddison is “on the verge” of being world class.


“He’s transformed a team on his own,” Jenas remarked.The biggest concern for Spurs is his ability to stay fit throughout the entire season. If you remove him from that team, everything is completely different. As soon as he steps onto that stage, he will instantly become a world-class talent.

Now, Micah Richards of Sky told The Rest is Football podcast that he wants to see Maddison play for the Three Lions in his usual Spurs number 10 position, calling the former Leicester City star “outstanding” in his remarks prior to England’s encounter against Italy.

“I’d love to see Maddison again,” Richards said. “I think he’s outstanding in that number 10 role. I don’t think he had his best game the other day. They could play him off the left though [if Bellingham starts at 10].”

The 26-year-old has netted two goals and assisted five others in just eight league starts this season, emphasising how he’s proven to be one of the bargains of the summer window so far. Maddison cost just £40 million from Leicester, and if he carries on like this, that fee is going to look pretty laughable.
