Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce responds to Allan Saint-Maximin 'fall out' rumours
Newcastle United boss Steve Bruce has called rumours he’s had a falling out with Allan Saint-Maximin as “total nonsense”.
Reports in the Daily Mail earlier this week claimed the United winger’s “future is in doubt” after he was dropped to the bench for the Premier League clash against Burnley at the weekend.
It claimed that the 22-year-old was “fully fit and available for selection”.
Speaking prior to United’s clash with West Brom in the FA Cup, in which the Frenchman was recalled to the starting XI, Bruce said: "I don't know where that has come from, it is total nonsense."
Speaking to the BBC, Bruce continued: “The facts are Allan has twice done his hamstring since he's been at the club. He wasn't great with it, didn't train on Sunday. He trained on Monday.
"All of the nonsense we have to read about is total nonsense."
