Allan Saint-Maximin stunned one Toon fan when he surprised him with a watch when arriving at St James’ Park before Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Brentford.
Our talisman gifted the Tag Heuer AquaRacer – worth around £1,500 – out of the blue to a supporter who was only expecting a picture or a photograph with the winger.
Watch the moment below:
Michael Urwin, the Toon fan who received the watch, has since taken to Twitter to reveal how “dumbfounded” he was after being given such a gift, calling the Frenchman a “true Geordie” after making his day after “nearly 30 years” of coming to St James’ Park.
Maxi then replied to the fan; you can see the exchange below:
Moments like this show why our star player is one of the biggest fan favourites at St James’ Park in years.
A class act both on and off the pitch, it’s a godsend that our takeover was given the green light as you feel it was the only way we could keep him tied down at the club.
