A lot of Newcastle United fans have flocked to a post from The Chronicle, which contains a link to a page on their website with comments from Allan Saint-Maximin.
This post drew the attention of these Toon fans who fear that Saint-Maximin will leave the club this summer.
“Getting his excuses in”
“He’s going to be sold”
“Well that’s Cashley’s plan every season until a Takeover, that’s y we buy more defender’s than Attacking player’s, at least u can get away from him, we can’t”
Do you think Saint-Maximin will leave?
No, he will stay for another season
Yes, he will leave
Newcastle won just two games without the Frenchman during the 2020/21 Premier League campaign, and even though he only scored three goals and provided four assists, he averaged 1.2 key passes per game and had 1.2 shots per game (as per WhoScored), so he was clearly heavily involved when he did play.
This post continued to draw in Newcastle fans who had their say after Saint-Maximin suggested he did not want to be involved in another relegation battle.
“He is away then”
“If there’s no takeover next season will be his last”
“Don’t worry he won’t be.”
It will be interesting to see what happens with Saint-Maximin, but given his new deal, the Toon probably have a good chance of keeping him.
