Tottenham chief Daniel Levy jokingly scolded summer signing James Maddison ahead of their clash with rivals Arsenal on Sunday.
Maddison has quickly endeared himself to Spurs fans since joining the club from Leicester this summer, assuming the role of creative lynchpin of Ange Postecoglou's side and earning the Premier League Player of the Month award for August.
The England international provided a pair of assists in a draw with Brentford in his competitive debut for the club and has scored twice in subsequent fixtures as Spurs have embarked on an unbeaten start to the Premier League season.
Postecoglou's side face a stern test when they travel to the Emirates to face Mikel Arteta's Arsenal on Sunday, but it appears Maddison has already managed to get himself in hot water before even stepping foot on the pitch for his first North London derby.
Speaking at a press conference ahead of the game, the club's chairman revealed that he had to tell the midfielder not to arrive at training driving a car adorned with the colour of the club's biggest rivals.
'James needs to learn that he can't come to the training ground in a red car. I've told him. He'll learn.' Levy joked.
The 61-year-old also heaped praise on Postecoglou, admitting that the Australian has been a 'breath of fresh air' at the club since his appointment in the summer.
'Honestly, there was a lot of pressure on me to bring in somebody that was a big name.
'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.'Read on m.allfootballapp.com
