During the Q&A, Levy was congratulated for his summer acquisition of Maddison from Leicester.
At this point, the Tottenham chief quipped that the 26-year-old must stop driving to training in a red car – due to Spurs’ fierce rivalry with Arsenal.
He said: “James needs to learn that he can’t come to the training ground in a red car. I’ve told him. He’ll learn.”
Maddison has been an instant-hit since joining Tottenham.
He has won over the fans with his creative displays, scoring two goals and laying on a pair of assists in his first five outings.
His exploits led to him earning August’s Premier League Player of the Month award.
While manager Postecoglou also earned the league’s Manager of the Month gong.
Red car or not, Maddison will hope to star against Arsenal on Sunday.
The match will be the attacking midfielder’s first taste of North London Derby action.
Ahead of the match, skipper Son vowed to the 250 fans present: “The rivalry is the most important game of the season, we’ve had tough years and away games it was tough to take it.
“You never win for free, we have to work hard. We are working hard all week.
“I’m pretty sure they don’t want to face us at this moment. I can guarantee we will give everything.
“The result I can’t promise you, I can promise that I will give you everything.”
Both teams have taken 13 points from their opening five Premier League matches of the campaign.
Spurs currently sit second on goal difference, with Arsenal below Liverpool in fourth.
