James Maddison 'banned' from driving one car at Tottenham after Daniel Levy warning
| Last updated
Tottenham chief Daniel Levy has jokingly banned James Maddison from driving one type of car following his summer transfer.
Maddison has starred for his new side since his £40 million summer move from Leicester City.
He's bagged two goals, including a stunning strike against Burnley, and registered two assists as he bagged the Premier League player of the month award for August.
His form at club level saw him land a spot in England's starting XI against Ukraine in their Euro 2024 qualifier during the international break.
Despite his brilliant and prolific start at Spurs, Levy has jokingly scolded Maddison over the colour of his car.
The club's chairman revealed that he had to tell the 26-year-old NOT to turn up to training driving a red car.
Of course, red is the colour donned by their cross-town rivals Arsenal.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Sunday's showdown at the Emirates, he said: "James needs to learn that he can't come to the training ground in a red car. I've told him.
"He'll learn," he added.
Levy also showered Ange Postecoglou with high praise, calling him a 'breath of fresh air' following his appointment in the summer.
"Honestly, there was a lot of pressure on me to bring in somebody that was a big name," he said.
"I just wanted somebody who understood our DNA, would play attacking football, that would give young players a chance, believe in the academy, would build a relationship with the fans and understand the resources that we have and don't have as a club and be part of a team.
"Ange, I have to say, is a breath of fresh air."
Spurs have won four of their five opening league games and sit in second place in the table, with 13 points on the board ahead of playing Arsenal.
