Leicester ace Maddison: I've come out of hardest time of career

Leicester City ace James Maddison admits positive reinforcement has been key to his return to form.

Maddison again scored in the midweek draw with Southampton.

"It's probably the hardest (time) of my career just because people from the outside, they don't know what goes on, they don't know my life," Maddison said. "I'm my own biggest critic. If you ask my family, my girlfriend, anyone, if I've had a bad game, I'll watch the game straight away.

"I had a good chat with the manager and I told him I was a little bit low on confidence. That's the first time I've been able to hold my hands up and say that because it puts you in a bit of a vulnerable position.

"But that was me being honest. We looked at my best clips and what makes me a good player. He challenged me to get back to the level I know I can, to be one of the best in the Premier League."
