Marcus Maddison Facts
- In January 2014, he was named “Conference Premier Player of the Month”. Furthermore, he scored 13 goals in 34 league appearances, thus reigniting his professional career.
- He was signed by Peterborough United in August 2014 and in October 2014, he won the Football League Young Player of the Month award for scoring 4 goals in 5 games.
- He was described as “a selfish lad” when he 1st started playing. In August 2014, he was described as “an unbelievable talent” with “a magical left foot,” and “a match-winner and team player” by Gary Mills, Gateshead F.C.‘s manager.
- He described his left-foot freekick technique as hitting the ball with the side of his foot but more with his heel, so it goes straight and moves simultaneously. A fellow playmaker Mesut Ozil has a similar playstyle.
- Marcus was known for his on-field theatrics that annoyed some but set him apart. He had a habit of releasing a high-pitch squeal after an intense situation.
- Some members of his fanbase think he physically resembles actor Tom Hardy.
- Marcus has been insecure about his hairline and beard for years. In 2019, he underwent a hair and beard transplant of the hair from the back of his head.
- He has a dog named Max and had dogs named Dolcè and Winston in the past.
- A little known fact about Marcus is that he gets bored watching TV and loves playing video games.
- Marcus is a big fan of the video games Fortnite and Apex Legends but prefers the latter. He spent a lot of money buying in-game things and remembers spending £80 when Apex 1st came out.
- Tattoos always fascinated him. He had a conversation about tattoos with his father at the age of 15 or 16.
- He was scared when he got his 1st tattoo in 2017. However, he found out the experience wasn’t so bad, and by April 2019, he had more than 100 tattoos.
- Marcus has his father’s and brother’s names tattooed on his chest.
- He drives a Range Rover.
- His biggest inspiration when it comes to soccer is Cristiano Ronaldo.
- Marcus considers himself a very well-dressed person.
- In his opinion, his Peterborough United teammate Ryan Tafazolli is the best player of the FIFA video game because he plays it every single day. The worst, in his opinion, is his teammate Aaron Chapman.
- Contrary to popular belief, he is not sure that soccer is an ideal job. Some days, he wishes he could go to a 9-to-5 job that doesn’t have a lot of stress, depression, and ups and downs.
