James Maddison Responds To 'The Sun' After They Mock His £6,500 Backpack

James Maddison made himself even more popular amongst a large section of football fans as he brilliantly responded to the Sun's tweet about his backpack.

The Leicester City midfielder is quickly becoming a fans favourite for his brilliance on the pitch and his sense of humour off it and Saturday was a good day for both.

Maddison arrived at the King Power Stadium for his side's game against Spurs with a £6500 Louis Vuitton backpack, which the Sun described as 'horrific,' but the 22-year-old had the perfect response.

Clearly Maddison's taste for accessories won't be to everyone's liking but they'll be plenty of football fans, especially Liverpool fans, who will be very happy to see him have a go at the paper.

The newspaper came under recent criticism for their handling of very personal stories about former rugby union player Gareth Thomas and Cricket World Cup hero Ben Stokes.

The Leicester midfielder's response will go down especially well after the recent two incidents, which were against extremely popular figures.


It's not the first time that the former Norwich City midfielder has hit back at criticism on Twitter either. During the draw with Chelsea last month Jeremy Clarkson suggested he spend less time having his hair cut and more time on football.

The Leicester player scored the equaliser during the game then took to social media to say that Clarkson was jealous as he didn't have many hair cuts left.

The England player, who got his first senior call up without getting a cap in the September internationals, continued to impress on the pitch on Saturday too.

Before dealing with the Sun, Maddison dealt with Spurs by scoring the winning goal late in the game with a stunning strike from outside the area.

After his social mediainteractionn today even Spurs' fans might forgive him...well maybe not quite.
