Saint-Maximin shows real touch of class as NUFC reveal what he stayed back to do on Monday

Allan Saint-Maximin may be popular amongst Newcastle fans for his quick feet, blistering pace and charismatic style both on and off the pitch, but the latest picture that’s emerged from the club’s official Twitter page shows what a class act the 23-year-old truly is.

After most went home following today’s training session at the club’s Benton training base, the Frenchman stuck around to watch our U-23’s – who played Hartlepool in their first pre-season friendly of the summer today.

Here’s the brilliant picture, showing Saint-Maximin stood alone on the sidelines to show his support:

To think that a few journalists both locally and in France talked about the winger’s ‘troublesome personality’ as he completed a £16m move from Nice last summer!

If anything, he’s proved to be anything but, with him not only interacting with fans brilliantly but embracing everything that comes with Newcastle United football club and helping out where he can to show his support – whether that be to the local foodbank or our youngsters in the second string.

As for the result itself, Elias Sorensen gave us a 1-0 lead but the game ended 1-1 thanks to a second half goal from Hartlepool’s Claudio Ofosu.

There’s not much to love about NUFC right now, but this was great to see from Allan Saint-Maximin and would’ve meant a lot to our youngsters on their first game back.
