James Maddison Becomes Tottenham’s New No.10 in Light of Kane’s Move to Bayern Munich
In a surprising turn of events, James Maddison has been named as Tottenham Hotspur’s new No.10 following the departure of Harry Kane to Bayern Munich. The announcement came just hours before Spurs’ Premier League opener against Brentford.
Maddison, who recently joined from Leicester City in a £40 million deal, has been entrusted with wearing the iconic No.10 jersey for the upcoming season. During the pre-season, he had been donning the No.71 shirt while awaiting confirmation of Kane’s future at the club.
A club statement released earlier today confirmed Maddison’s new role as the No.10. Additionally, the English midfielder has been appointed as the vice-captain alongside Cristian Romero. Meanwhile, Heung-Min Son has been named the new captain of Tottenham Hotspur.
Aside from the notable change in squad numbers, Spurs also introduced several new signings for the upcoming season. Guglielmo Vicario has taken up the No.13 jersey as the team’s new goalkeeper, while Micky van de Ven will don the No.37 shirt as a defender.
Furthermore, Alejo Veliz has been assigned the No.36 forward position, Manor Solomon will wear No.27, and Ashley Phillips will represent the team with the No.35 jersey. Destiny Udogie, fresh from his successful loan spell at Udinese, will be seen on the pitch wearing the No.28 shirt. Yves Bissouma has also made a change, switching from No.38 to No.8.
These changes in squad numbers suggest that both Bissouma and Maddison are expected to play crucial roles in Spurs’ upcoming season. Fans will be eager to see how these new signings adapt to the club’s style of play and contribute to the team’s success.
As Tottenham Hotspur prepares for their Premier League opener against Brentford, the anticipation is high, with fans excited to witness the impact of these new squad numbers and the performances of the team’s key signings. With Maddison now donning the prestigious No.10 jersey, all eyes will be on him as he aims to fill the void left by Harry Kane’s departure.
