Mario Vrancic expected 'special' James Maddison to be the star of the show at Norwich City this season.

The Bosnian international midfielder counts Maddison as one of his best pals at Carrow Road since a move from the Bundesliga last summer.

Vrancic, who scored his first league goal for the club in the 3-2 Championship win over Reading prior to the international break, admitted he was amazed Maddison only had a bit-part role under previous City boss Alex Neil.

'He is amazing. He is absolutely brilliant.

'I saw it the first days in training when I joined the club,' said Vrancic.

'For me, I just want to stay fit and healthy and get minutes on the pitch and make a contribution.
