James Maddison has revealed his anger at the treatment of horror which is set to see a young Leicester City player ruled out for up to nine months.

Will Alves was up against a nasty challenge from Wolves defender Caden Vois during an FA Youth Cup match that resulted in the midfielder injuring his anterior cruciate ligament.

The sound was at best too late with his first challenge to Alves’ knee, but few Leicester players remained in doubt about the Wolverhampton defender’s intentions after angrily confronting him as a group over a tackle that left Alves in agony on the ground.

James Madison described the treatment as:

James Maddison (R) revealed his devastation with Will Alves who has been ruled out for up to nine months after a horror challenge to him in the FA Cup youth game on Wednesday.

Madison admitted that he considered whether public opinion should be expressed about the incident before calling it unacceptable on Twitter.

“I wasn’t sure if you wanted to comment on this publicly,” he said, “but I feel like he really needs to look into it.”

This interference is not acceptable in any way. I’m devastated for young Will. A bright kid with a bright future who now has to recover from this terrible challenge.”

Maddison’s comments come as he prepares to return to playing for Leicester after returning from England’s World Cup exit, and he was seen on Ally Pally on Friday night enjoying the World Darts Championship as he prepares to return to domestic service.

Alves took to Instagram to confirm the worst fears of those associated with the club that he had suffered an anterior cruciate ligament injury as a result of the challenge.

“A rollercoaster week, I’m devastated by the announcement that I tore my anterior cruciate ligament,” he said.

I will do my best to get back on the field and do what I love most. I will come back stronger.

Rodgers, meanwhile, was harsher in his assessment of the situation – declaring the challenge ‘one of the worst’ he had seen in his career.

“It’s sad for us,” Rodgers said. We’ve lost one of our young talents, Will Alves, who went to the MK Dons game.

He wanted to play in the Youth Cup match the following night and he played in it. They got through the tie, under-18s, but he had one of the worst challenges I’ve ever seen on a soccer field.

“It’s such a shame for a young player of 17, who’s really making his way in the game and putting his mark in training and the way he’s been.

It’s disappointing for us. We wish him a speedy recovery on his return. This will be the rest of the season he will miss.

His rehabilitation will begin over the next few weeks and he will undergo surgery after that.

It’s notoriously difficult to overcome ACL injuries, getting back to a level that’s more or less like where you were for a long, grueling phase.

Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall, himself a product of the Leicester Academy, offered support to the devastated youngster, saying his support is there if needed.

‘Get well soon my friend.’ Support is here if you need it,” he said.

Meanwhile, Alves’ young teammates said Vote deserved more than his red card penalty.
