Marcus Maddison interview: Peterborough forward on assists, social media criticism and his future


The assist record for Peterborough over the past six seasons of marcus Maddison has been second to none.
True, that is many times a hastily-attributed idiom, but for the 25-year-old, mercifully, it is true; since the beginning of the 2014/15 year, his amazing tally of 71 league aids is 18 more than every other participant in the top four tiers of English soccer.
If this wasn’t enough, his first 119 goal involvements in that time put him near the esteemed firm of Tottenham’s Harry Kane (144) and Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero (147).
“It’s probably just understanding where the ball should go,” he told Sky Sports before Posh’s trip to Tranmere on Tuesday evening.
“I’m relying on my team-mates to understand where I’m going to place the ball. It’s not about searching at which they are, it’s all about putting the ball in. It is about sport understanding.”
Capable of playing anywhere across the frontline has, almost exclusively, been set up this term along with boss Darren Ferguson is reaping the rewards as a result of the alteration.
The statistics develop more impressive with the week: Maddison has already scored five goals and placed helping his staff – who have won four without even conceding – up into sixth at the table, three behind leaders Coventry.
But, for a player who returned for pre-season training weeks after than his team-mates what has sparked the constant start that resulted past week in him being named League One Player of the Month?
He continued:”I have had a lot of catching up to do. I came back to training a lot later than the rest of the boys – potentially . But I believe it’s the manager who has looked after me, along with the belief in all my team-mates. I’ve worked to keep myself and I believe I am just living my life straight at the moment.
“it is a long season. We had. We started a bit rusty, things clicked and then we have scored 11 goals and not surrendered (since climbed to 17 in all contests ), things are going well. It can go back to getting defeats if we get complacent. I think we have only got to keep our foot on the gas and continue.
“I would really like to get advertising. I have been here a very long time and we have failed every year, likely unfortunately. As well we had been just on the outskirts. I want to win a promotion as a team. I have got a couple of individual decorations but it’s hard not to do it with the group.”
However, as they say, success breeds contempt.
On the weekend of August, boyhood Sunderland fan Maddison scored two goals in a comprehensive 3-0 victory on the Black Cats at the ABAX Stadium, the first of which had been a gorgeous.
Though members of the public contacted club chairman Darragh MacAnthony via Twitter to inform him accusing him A night out in the Red Room bar of Peterborough followed.
MacAnthony promised he’d asked the place to send the bill to him to allow him to repay it out of his pocket, and also hit back in defence of his precious asset.
“Yes, it was really nice to score against my boyhood club,” Maddison says. “It’s not disheartening in any way. The people are down to state the things that they will need to state. When I go out and enjoy myself following a result that is fantastic, I go out some time and enjoy myself, I am sure people have got something to say.
“Because we are public figures, they think that it’s OK to go and tell other people. I’m happy the chairman had my spine and knew what I do. We’ve got a really good connection and I believe that’s why I’m here six years on now, doing what I am doing, as I and him get on so nicely ”
Nevertheless, it was seen how long he’ll stay in Cambridgeshire. Of course reaching the statistical peaks the Durham-born forwards has performed over the last few years has attracted interest from across the EFL. For over a year, in, Sunderland were linked with a shift, while Hull displayed an interest.
The fact of the matter is, as they are, if things remain, Maddison’s contract will expire during the summer, leaving him free to sign a pre-contract agreement. However he keeps a calm exterior as he handles the recent speculation.
“Of course, you hear picture annually:”This individual’s in for you” or”you could be going here”I think you’ve just got to keep your head . Unless something happens and I’m getting a phone call saying I am going somewhere, I am contracted to this football club and I’ve got to sacrifice my all for this football club.
“It would be great to try at a Championship club, whether that be Peterborough or somewhere else, but that’s not me down, that’s for other managers, other supervisors to produce the choice, pay the money and get me in. But as of now, I am in Peterborough United and I will continue to do exactly what I do.”
