Ahead of Newcastle United’s looming FA Cup replay away to Oxford United, Magpies supporters have taken to Twitter and praised winger Allan Saint-Maximin’s heartfelt social media post with his daughter – prompting supporters to be grateful that the Frenchman is back from injury and enjoying life.
Saint-Maximin, who couldn’t help his side break through a stern Norwich City defence in their last Premier League outing, has recently returned to the fold after a hamstring injury ruled him out for the entirety of the festive period. The Frenchman, who has been a crucial figure judging by his stats, has completed more dribbles (4.4) per game than any other Magpies player this season (WhoScored.com) – potentially highlighting his creative influence under manager Steve Bruce.
As a result, a lot of Newcastle fans are keen to see him back to his best, with their next Premier League clash away to Arsenal being just under a fortnight away – giving Saint-Maximin some time to find his feet when it comes to fitness and recovery.
Here’s how supporters lauded the 22-year-old’s message on Twitter.
We go again vs arsenal mate, masterclass incoming
