Brentford manager Frank in awe of Leicester ace Maddison

Brentford manager Thomas Frank was shocked by the talent of James Maddison during his side's loss to Leicester City.

The English playmaker capped off a fine performance with the final goal in the 3-1 victory, which booked Leicester's place in the FA Cup fifth-round.

"We delivered a decent performance, especially in the first half," Frank said. "But you always talk about how they will make a fast start in the second half.

"It was a bit of magic by Maddison - what a player by the way. His development has been fantastic.

"That assist, his reaction was so quick, his touch and decision making are incredible and so is his work rate. That's what makes him a top, top player."
