After a week that’s threatened to be overshadowed by reports of a ‘row’ with Steve Bruce, Allan Saint-Maximin has shared a picture on social media that says it all.
Earlier this week, the Mail’s Craig Hope wrote a troubling ‘exclusive’ claiming the Frenchman’s future was ‘in doubt’ after a ‘fallout’ with the NUFC boss.
The story was met with an angry response by Steve Bruce – who insisted there’d been no bust up with the 22-year-old – and the winger’s latest post on social media seems like an indirect message to Hope; suggesting there’s absolutely no issue between the pair.
Here’s the picture he posted last night, showing himself and Steve Bruce hugging after yesterday’s big win on the south coast:
Based on Bruce’s comments, Saint-Maximin’s reaction to being ‘dropped’ last weekend and the picture above, I think it’s fair to say there’s been no major fallout!
Back to footballing matters, the former Nice winger was superb at West Brom in setting up TWO of our three goals, but he went one better yesterday, scoring the all important winner at St Mary’s to not only end our 4-game goal drought but send us EIGHT clear of the drop zone!
