After putting in a brilliant performance in Newcastle United’s 3-2 victory at West Ham, making Alan Shearer’s team of the week, Allan Saint-Maximin had a hilarious back and forth with a Sunderland fan on Twitter.
Is Allan Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player?
The Magpies put on a glorious attacking performance as Steve Bruce’s side scored more than one goal in a game for the first time this season, prompting fans and pundits alike to take notice of Saint-Maximin’s star contribution.
Although the French winger found himself through on goal twice in the first half, both times failing to capitalise, he was instrumental to Newcastle’s threat going forward – endearing himself to the St. James’ Park faithful even further.
Now, after a hilarious back and forth with a Sunderland fan on Twitter over his placement in Shearer’s Team of the Week, resulting in the rival supporter making his profile private, Magpies supporters have praised the 22-year-old for his witty response.
The France U21 international tweeted in reply:
I wish I could score my first goal against your club but… pic.twitter.com/yQp7ZY1ZJP
