The Allan Saint-Maximin Tweet that proves the winger just 'gets' Newcastle United

Chronicle Live Sports 1 month ago

Allan Saint-Maximin has made as big an impression off-the-pitch as he has on it since joining Newcastle from Nice.

The winger was in fine form at West Ham as he continues to illustrate why United shelled out the best part of £20million to sign him from France in the close season. The jet-heeled forward turned on the after burners to beat West Ham’s offside trap and a first goal in black and white is surely coming.

Saint-Maximin was hailed by a boisterous away end after the game and that drew a Twitter response that summed up exactly why Newcastle fans have taken him to their heart.

Replying to a Tweet from ex-Chronicle journalist Chris Waugh, who pointed out the rapturous response from the visiting supporters when he threw his shirt into the crowd, Saint-Maximin’s response showed exactly why he’s proved so popular since joining Newcastle.

“Thank you but cheers for them Chris, spending money and hours on the road to support us, I realize what it means,” he wrote.

Newcastle’s history is full of players who have joined and not really understand what it is that makes the club so unique. Some pay lip service while others embrace a club and supporter base which are fiercely supportive of those willing to give everything to the cause.

After his work with the Foodbank at the start of the season and openness on social media, Saint-Maximin certainly appears to ‘get it’.
