VIDEO: Watch as James Maddison stops to take selfie with pitch invader mid-game during Leicester's win over Man City

LEICESTER CITY'S James Maddison took a break from the action in Saturday's Community Shield clash to take a selfie with a fan who managed to get on to the Wembley pitch.

The 24-year-old played 71 minutes in the game as the FA Cup winners beat Premier League champions Manchester City 1-0 thanks to a late Kelechi Iheanacho goal.

But just before the hour mark a Foxes fan spotted his chance to snap a selfie with the Leicester star.

As Maddison trotted towards the corner flag to take a set-piece, a fan managed to break past security and onto the pitch to grab a picture with theone-cap England man.

And Maddison was more than happy for the picture to take place, stopping in his tracks to smile for the camera before the fan was wheeled away by Wembley security.

The incident occurred just before the hour mark, with the score still 0-0 at Wembley.


There have been concerns in recent weeks about the security at the stadium after fans forced their way inside before the Euro 2020 final between England and Italy, and this incident only adds to those fears.

Maddison has been widely linked with a move to Arsenal this summer, as Mikel Arteta seeks a playmaker like Maddison as a long-term replacement for Mesut Ozil.

But ITV pundit Roy Keane has warned Maddison against the move, warning the former Norwich man against a switch to a side who finished below Leicester in the Premier League last season.

Speaking on ITV ahead of the Community Shield between Leicester and Manchester City, he said: "Maybe he might just fancy a bit of change, maybe just fancy a bit of London? I don’t know.

"It’s a difficult one, [Jamie] Vardy had an opportunity to go to Arsenal, he turned it down.

"He got big money, turned it down, he got big money at Leicester, let’s not kid ourselves. But Leicester, the group of players they have, they’ve [also] got a new training ground.

"If he’s leaving Leicester, I don’t think Arsenal is the right option. If I was him I’d sit tight."

It's believed that the Foxes are holding out for around £60million for their star man, and with three years left on his contract they're in a very strong bargaining position.

Football London claim that homegrown talents Ainsley Maitland-Niles, Joe Willock, Reiss Nelson and Eddie Nketiah could all be on the table in a player-plus-cash swap deal, but the Foxes are not thought to be interested in a swap deal and would prefer a lump sum.

But for now Maddison is a Leicester player and he will be hoping to add to the eight goals he scored and seven assists he provided in the 2020/21 Premier League season, as he looks to help Leicester into the top four spots after the Foxes agonisingly missed out on Champions League football in the last two seasons.
