LEICESTER star James Maddison had the last laugh after stuffing his Man of the Match award in his £6,500 Louis Vuitton backpack joked team-mate Ben Chillwell – and Manchester United star Harry Maguire agreed.

Maddison caused a stir on social media prior to the game when he proudly wore the eye-catching bag while strutting into the dressing room.

And after Maddison had capped a brilliant display by scoring the winner in the 2-1 victory over Spurs, Chilwell was quick to pick up on SunSport’s coverage.

The England full-back saw the story on Twitter and retweeted it, joking that 22-year-old Maddison had managed to squeeze his award inside.

His comment was picked up by former Foxes team-mate Maguire, with the current Old Trafford star tweeting laughing emojis in response.

Maddison’s arrival didn’t get past BBC presenter Dan Walker, though, who uploaded a snap of Maddison on Twitter, along with the same item on the Louis Vuitton website.

He tweeted: “Fancy that Maddison rucksack? £6500.”

Commenting on his post, former Spurs star Ryan Mason simply put five emojis of a monkey covering its eyes.

While broadcaster Kelly Cates quipped: “Or Smiggle has a sale on.”

One fan joked: “£6500?!?!?! Real talk you can get an 8 year old in arts and crafts after school club to make this for a tenner.”

Another added: “Looks like something my girls would carry around with their dolls in. More money than sense.”

A fifth simply stated: “That is a horrific looking thing!”

One wisecrack fan said: “If I’d seen this yesterday I wouldn’t have put him in my Fantasy team this week.”

Maddison has started every game for the Foxes this season under Brendan Rodgers, with his form earning him a call-up to the England senior side.

And it was he who had the last laugh here as well.

Maddison, showing razor sharp wit, jokingly replied to Chilwell saying: “Would be worse turning up holding a Sun newspaper I guess.”
