Following in the footsteps akin to the likes of Demba Ba, Papiss Cisse and Jonas Gutierrez in recent seasons, Allan Saint-Maximin appears to be Newcastle’s latest cult hero, especially after his performances of late and social media antics.
The former France U21 international has been a shining light in the Magpies’ otherwise quality bereft team, putting in Man of the Match worthy displays going forward in both of their last two games during impressive victories over West Ham and Bournemouth.
Is Allan Saint-Maximin Newcastle's best player?
When Saint-Maximin isn’t being the creative force at the centre of Newcastle’s threat in the final third, he can be seen engaging with the community on Tyneside or joking along with supporters on social media.
Following the Frenchman’s latest Twitter message after their 2-1 home win, a match where he was unlucky not to open his account, it’s clear supporters have found a new idol.
Here’s how the Geordie faithful praised Saint-Maximin after another brilliant performance.
Allan, you’re the best thing ever 🤩⚫️⚪️⚫️⚪️
