Early on Monday, Alan Shearer’s team of the week was announced, and it contained 22-year-old Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin as well as Steve Bruce as manager.
Allan Saint-Maximin has since taken to Twitter to express his gratitude at being selected by the Newcastle legend.

Allan has certainly endeared himself to the Newcastle faithful as he seems to just make all the right moves with the fans. On Sunday, he tweeted the following response to Chris Waugh’s tweet about Saint-Maximin handing his shirt to a traveling fan.
Thank you but cheers for them Chris, spending money and hours on the road to support us, I realize what it means

The 22-year-old’s form since returning from his hamstring injury has been remarkable. He has added such a spark to the Newcastle attack. That spark caught fire against West Ham and led to a flurry of golden chances.
Saint-Maximin has been such a joy to watch over the past month as he frightened the living daylights out of defenses. We just can’t wait to see the winger’s reaction when he finally opens his account for the Magpies.
He’ll have another opportunity this weekend as Newcastle face Bournemouth on Saturday at St James Park. At home would before the next international break would be a fitting time for Allan to get that elusive first goal for his new club.
