Every word James Maddison said about Harry Kane and the Tottenham player has surprised him

How have you found your first week or two at the club?

Very good. I know it can be difficult to move clubs after being at a club for a certain period of time, but the transition has been quite easy. Everyone made me feel welcome. It has been easy to switch. Something like this, a preseason tour can be beneficial in terms of talking to each other, learning about each other. That’s what I’ve been trying to do with teammates and staff. And it has been very easy.

What did the Spurs sell you?

Every person comes to a point in life where you have to make decisions, certain things happen that will affect you in one way or another. I don’t want to divulge details of the talks, but I’m an ambitious guy. have always been. I’m hungry to do well. I am driven from within and this is something the manager shares. When you have to make a decision about where my next path would lead, the first chat with the manager was brilliant and told me things I was almost thinking of and made it very easy mate.

Gareth Southgate once said he sees you as a striker, we saw you in a midfield three against West Ham, where is your best position?

Gareth has said I can also play in the forward line. I don’t think that means I’m a forward. I play anywhere. Over the years at Leicester I have probably played in six different positions. Anywhere in the forward line or the midfield line, I’ve played in all of them at one point or another. I played as eight the other day in a 4-3-3. If that’s what the manager wants me to do, I’ll do it.

If he wants me to play on the left wing, that’s what I’ll do. if he wants me to play back, that’s what I’ll do. (Postecoglou shakes his head) I hope not, but I’ll work if he does. I want to play anywhere but my strengths are between the lines and I hope that will be enough to get me in the team.
