James Maddison (27), the ace of the midfield, will return to Tottenham without Captain Son Heung-min (32). That’s good news.
According to the British media Telegraph on the 18th (Korea time), midfielder Madison, who left the club in November last year due to an ankle injury, is preparing to announce his return through the FA Cup with Manchester City on the 27th. Striker Manor Solomon (24) will also return.
Son Heung-min is not currently with the team as Tottenham is scheduled to play Manchester City in the fourth round of the FA Cup. The return of Madison and Solomon is a huge boost.
Through the transfer window last summer, Maddison moved to Tottenham from Leicester City. He was signed until 2028.
According to Fabrizio Romano, a European football transfer market expert, the total transfer fee is 40 million pounds (66.3 billion won).
The attacking midfielder has brought creativity to Tottenham’s lack of attack. In particular, he served as a “special assistant” for Son Heung-min, who moved to the front line striker.
He played in 30 English Premier League (EPL) games in the 2022-2023 season with Leicester City, scoring 10 goals and nine assists, and was praised for his full-fledged performance after moving to Tottenham. Prior to his injury, he played in 11 EPL games played by Tottenham this season, scoring three goals and five assists.
However, he has been out of power for a long time since suffering an ankle injury in a match against Chelsea on Nov. 7 last year. Having devoted all of his time to rehabilitation, he will play the upcoming match against Manchester United as his return match.
He boasted of his fantastic teamwork with Son before the injury. Notably, in a home game against Fulham on Oct. 24 last year, Son recorded his first assist of the season, and it was Madison who received his pass to score a goal. At the time, Tottenham won 2-0. Son also scored one goal.
The two players tasted the goal and performed a “dart ceremony” together, giving fans a big smile.
After the game, Madison said, “Sonny (the nickname of Son Heung-min) is a player that I have loved for years. Now I really enjoy playing with him. I’m not good at saying things like this, but he’s world class. We like to connect and play. I’m trying hard in training and I’m starting to understand each other’s movements.” He showed off his affection for Son throughout the game 헤라카지노도메인.
Solomon, along with Madison, also joined Tottenham ahead of this season. He was a player who gave two assists to Son in the match against Burnley in the fourth round of the EPL. He is currently concentrating on recovery due to a meniscus injury in his right knee, and is finally waiting for his participation.
