Although individual efforts are highly appreciated, at the end of the day, football is a team game, and the side that has the best understanding among the players takes the trophy. Allan Saint-Maximin, the Newcastle United winger proudly announces himself to be one for the team. But getting his name up on the scoreboard? No f***s given.
Appearing on BBC Radio yesterday, the 22 year old had the perfect clearances as to why he hasn’t found the back of the net since his arrival at St James’ Park last August.
“I don’t care. I care if I don’t score and we lose. It’s different. If the team wins and I don’t score, I’m happy because the most important thing is to win” the French international said.
“I don’t give a f*** after the game if we win and I don’t score. I don’t play for myself, if I don’t score and the team wins I’m happy” the usage of a cuss world on live radio shook the DJ.

The Frenchman, who is a Saint Étienne youth product, joined the Magpies from Ligue 1 side OGC Nice on a six year contract. He has made 8 appearances for the club, but still no goals, however, justifying his claim.
