James Maddison's quotes on being 'the main man' at a family roast dinner are going viral

James Maddison's comments on being "the main man" when he goes for a Sunday roast have gone viral online.

The attacking midfielder has had an excellent to start to life at Spurs, scoring twice and assisting twice in his first four games since joining from Leicester City in a £40 million switch.

He's taken on the No.10 shirt vacated by Harry Kane after his move to Bayern Munich and already become a key part of Ange Postecoglou's side, who are undefeated with 10 points from a possible 12.

The 26-year-old plays such personality on the pitch and recently had a perfect response to Bournemouth fans abusing him by chanting "Southgate's right, you're f***ing s****!".

And in a new interview with The Independent, Maddison, who is always refreshing in post-match chats, has admitted he's exactly the same off the pitch in terms of having a swagger and arrogance a bit.

“It’s not a conscious effort to try and be the showman," he said.

“That’s just how I play football. That’s just how I am as a person, [when] I go for a roast dinner with my family, I like to be the main man.”

Maddison, for all his qualities, has only been capped three times by England. He was part of the squad for the World Cup but a knee injury meant he didn't take to the pitch.

Now fit and firing, he is in the frame for upcoming games against Ukraine and will surely be given a start given Trent Alexander-Arnold, Jack Grealish and Raheem Sterling are notable absentees.

"I think a younger version of myself would have been a bit more sulky, a bit more moody, a bit more moany," Maddison said on not getting a game in Qatar.

"Gareth gave me a massive compliment as we were leaving. He said he knew it has been tough with the injury and not featuring, but he was really impressed with the way I had carried myself round the group. Him putting his arm around me and saying that as we were leaving stuck with me.”

England take on Ukraine in Wroclaw, Poland on Saturday before playing Scotland at Hampden Park on Tuesday.
