Allan Saint-Maximin – Newcastle fans are really ‘hot’ but I don’t want to fight relegation every season
Allan Saint-Maximin has done another interview.
Another interview where he talks about how much he loves Newcastle United and especially the fans.
Allan Saint-Maximin declaring: ‘It’s a little bit cold here [moving to Newcastle from Nice] but the people are not cold, the people are really, really hot…that is why I really love Newcastle.’
However, of course it is also another interview where ASM talks of ambition and wanting to compete for trophies, not struggle year after year…
The 24 year old saying: ‘I don’t want to do again a season where we fight relegation, so I hope the club and everyone tries to do the best to have a really good team for the start of next season and try to do everything to win a trophy because it’s the most important thing.’
Allan Saint-Maximin has regularly stated in previous interviews that he is happy at Newcastle United BUT also ambitious, that if he can’t at least compete for trophies at NUFC, then one day he will have to move elsewhere.
The big unknown of course is when that ‘one day’ might be and in reality, the game changer is if a more ambitious club than Newcastle United comes in and makes a bid for Allan Saint-Maximin, then we will see what happens.
It is not difficult to imagine a more ambitious club than Mike Ashley’s Newcastle United and you can’t help but feel that yet again, Allan Saint-Maximin, like past players before him, is challenging Ashley to show ambition this summer.
ASM lays it on the line: ‘When you bring in a player like Willock, I feel more comfortable…so it is really important to have more players like Joe Willock in the team.’
The reality of course is that as things stand, next season Newcastle United won’t even have as many Joe Willocks as they ended the season with, instead it will be one less Joe Willock!
Which then could be like a domino falling because if Allan Saint-Maximin and the other better quality Newcastle players see no real attempt to buy Joe Willock and also strengthen otherwise, not only do we end up with one less Joe Willock, but also potentially one less Allan Saint-Maximin…
Allan Saint-Maximin talking to Stadium Astro:
“I know the way that I play and I try to improve every game.
“I think that you can see from my first game [for Newcastle] and now, I change a lot of things about the way I play.
“I think I start to really improve the way I play, my end product.
“Even when I don’t score or assist, I do some things like the last pass, or I give a good ball like against Manchester City and we get a penalty.
“I feel really good because I play in the best league in the world…it is really important for me to play in this league.
“It’s a little bit cold here [moving to Newcastle from Nice] but the people are not cold, the people are really, really hot…that is why I really love Newcastle.
“Sometimes you have to be honest and Newcastle don’t have to be in this position you know because I don’t think anyone wants to fight every year to not get relegated.
“For me, Newcastle have the opportunity, have everything to try to fight for the top 10 and try to win some trophies because that’s why we play football.
“We play football for win a games and win trophy, so that’s why a lot of the time I feel disappointed and that’s what I say, sometimes you have to be honest.
“I don’t want to do again a season where we fight relegation, so I hope the club and everyone tries to do the best to have a really good team for the start of next season and try to do everything to win a trophy because it’s the most important thing.
“Joe Willock is an amazing player, he can run fast, he can score goals, his technique, his ability…we need more players like him if we want to be in the top ten.
“When you bring in a player like Willock, I feel more comfortable…so it is really important to have more players like Joe Willock in the team.”
