Allan Saint-Maximin has been a terrific acquisition since signing in the summer from OGC Nice in a £16.5 million deal, with this piece of skill against Southampton highlighting why Newcastle United fans have started to fall in love with the Frenchman.
The 22-year-old has been a mainstay in Steve Bruce’s XI since moving to Tyneside, drawing comparisons with previous flair players like Hatem Ben Arfa and endearing himself to the Geordie faithful.
Is Allan Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player?
His on-field antics aren’t the only thing he’s loved for, but also his off-field personality as well – famously developing a great relationship with supporters on Twitter.
Now, following a clip from the club’s official account, supporters are hailing a sublime piece of skill from their victory over Southampton last weekend – with Saint-Maximin turning on the outside and skating past full-back Cedric Soares.
This moment has even had one fan comparing him to Ronaldinho – here’s how supporters reacted on Twitter.
