Maddison admits Spurs teammate gave him whiplash with a ‘smack on the head’

After watching back the celebration following his goal against Burnley, James Maddison had admitted that he got ‘whiplashed’ on the head by Cristian Romero.

Maddison has settled in very quickly at Tottenham, having already become quite a popular member of the changing room.

The attacking midfielder is part of the club’s new leadership group, having been appointed as one of the vice-captains and is already developing a bit of bromance with captain Son Heung-min.

The attacking midfielder also appears to have become close with his fellow vice-captain, Cristian Romero, who smacked the midfielder on his head following his strike against Burnley two weeks ago.

The centre-back is certainly no stranger to striking his teammates affectionately during celebrations and the 26-year-old was his latest victim.

Cristian Romero is back at it with the head smacks

Maddison saw the clip and read a comment from a supporter which read: “Obligatory smack on the head by Romero”, following which the former Leicester star said: “I actually thought at the time, because I was mid-celebration I didn’t really feel it, but I felt like a little bit of a whiplash on my neck.

“I assume from what a couple of the fans have said and what people have said that he gets quite aggressive in celebrations. If you actually watch the clip again, I proper get whiplashed from him, my head goes flying down.”

Given the way Maddison is playing and how much of a threat he is in front of goal, the midfielder will probably have to get used to receiving smacks by Romero.
