Many Liverpool supporters have been praising Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin after he stuck up for Sadio Mane over the weekend.
The Reds suffered another hugely disappointing afternoon on Saturday, with Jurgen Klopp’s Premier League champions only able to draw 1-1 at home to the Magpies. After Mohamed Salah fired Liverpool into an early lead, it looked like being a comfortable three points, but once again, poor finishing let them down.
Mane was guilty of missing one enormous opportunity in the first half, freezing in front of goal and seeing a great chance go begging. It was a moment which summed up the Senegal forward’s season, with his form and confidence evaporating in recent months and just eight goals scored in the league.
I know you think it’s a nice message to me but I don’t like this. Be respectful to him please you are ungrateful, he did and he’s doing a lot for Liverpool, there still a long way before I could reach his level

It was a touching moment and one which didn’t go unnoticed by a number of Reds supporters, who took to Twitter to praise the Newcastle forward.
“That’s a class response from a class player“
“Top lad, him“
“Oozing Class! A lot of fans needed the reminder“
“He deserves an upgrade. We need a player like him at Liverpool“
