Allan Saint-Maximin pays tribute to ‘unforgettable’ Newcastle United pre-match flag display

The pre-match Wor Flags display was focused on United’s No.10.

Since his arrival to Newcastle from France, Saint-Maximin has been a crowd favourite with his dazzling footwork that always gets fans off their seats.

And although his form has dipped in recent weeks after a display against Everton that Frank Lampard described as ‘unplayable’, he still remains one of Newcastle’s biggest attacking threats.

That was highlighted pre-match as the team took to the pitch when the Gallowgate End unveiled a huge gold No.10 that flanked a banner depicting Saint-Maximin basking in the glory of that performance against the Toffees.

It was yet another wonderful display and one that Saint-Maximin has described as ‘unforgettable’.

The winger wrote on social media post-match: ‘I will never be able to thank you enough for this. I will remember this day for the rest of my life ! Thanks for everything !’

Wor Flags have since revealed they want their final two displays against Liverpool and Arsenal to be ‘memorable’.
