​Norwich boss Farke lauds Leicester playmaker Maddison

Norwich City manager Daniel Farke is full of praise for Leicester City midfielder James Maddison.

Farke is impressed with what he has seen from Maddison in the Premier League the past couple of seasons.

The Englishman has become one of the most creative midfielders in the league since joining from Norwich.

As the two sides prepare to meet at Carrow Road, Farke said the following about Maddison to reporters:

"James Maddison is still popular here because his behaviour was always top class.

"For such a young player, he was humble and showed his pride to wear the yellow shirt.

"He's a top class player and will play an important role for the Three Lions because he has so many skills."

Farke added: "It's always great to see James because I love this guy, but we want to make his life as difficult as possible during the game."
