“I try not to have that” – James Maddison reveals what frustrates him the most

By Mehdi Gokal -

Tottenham star James Maddison recently returned to action from an ankle injury at the end of January.

Maddison’s absence was felt during his 11-game lay-off, given his stellar form at the beginning of the season, where he contributed significantly with three goals and six assists in his first ten league starts.

Since returning to action, Maddison has only managed to provide one assist in his last four games, which may be seen as below his usual standards. In a recent interview, he expressed his frustration with not performing up to his potential, even in games where his team secures victory.

In a recent interview, the attacking midfielder was asked what frustrates him the most, to which  Maddison emphasised that not playing up to his potential is always a bad feeling.

He stated (via Last Word On Spurs):

“Playing poorly in a game. I could say losing but sometimes you can win, and be happy that you’ve won, but you’ve still played poorly and it will frustrate and annoy me that I haven’t played to the level that I know I can. I try not to have that very often!”

TBH Says:

Despite not making direct goal contributions in their recent appearances, Maddison still leads in some critical underlying metrics, as per Fbref.

This includes shot-creating actions per 90, goal-creating actions per 90, and assists per 90 in the Premier League this season.

Ange Postecoglou will be eager to see Maddison return to his best form as the club continues to push for a top-four finish in the league. Maddison’s creativity and influence in midfield will be crucial in Spurs’ quest for success this season.
