After the victory at West Ham, it was noted among many in the media how Allan Saint-Maximin jumped into the stands to hand his shirt to a traveling supporter. One of those who tweeted about the incident was the Athletic’s Chris Waugh:
All the #nufc players head over to applaud the fans. Huge cheers for Saint-Maximin, though, who takes off his shirt, jumps over the hoardings & hands it to a lucky supporter. He then puts on his coat & heads off the pitch with his team-mates

On Sunday, Allan Saint-Maximin responded to Chris’s tweet with such humility as he transferred the credit to the fantastic traveling fans who had so much to cheer about on the previous day.
Thank you but cheers for them Chris, spending money and hours on the road to support us, I realize what it means

Allan’s deference to the Toon Army did not go unnoticed on Twitter as many fans responded to Allan to give the 22-year-old the praise he deserves for what he’s brought to Newcastle over the past month.
This young man has endeared himself to the Newcastle faithful ever since his unveiling video. He has a natural intuition about what it means to wear the black and white stripes of Newcastle United and genuinely seems to appreciate playing for this club.
Here are some of the responses to Allan’s tweet:
ASM what a game yesterday hopefully your first goal won’t be far away, your a fan favourite and you keep doing these things and if it’s possible we love you more for it keep up great work hopefully score next week ?

You're creativity and work rate is unreal on and off the pitch you have lifted a deflated too army and you can see its rubbing off on the other players. Keep up the good work
