The Magpies returned to winning ways after three straight Premier League defeats to Manchester City, Liverpool and Brighton & Hove Albion with Callum Wilson’s 64th-minute penalty separating the two sides at St James’ Park.
And following the full-time whistle, ex-winger Saint-Maximin was quick to send his love to Newcastle. Replying to a tweet on the club’s official X account, the Frenchman said “LET’S GO!!!!!” with three white heart emoji.
After being sold to Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli in August, Saint-Maximin vowed to continue to be Newcastle’s biggest supporter during an emotional farewell message.
“4 years ago, I wore the Newcastle jersey for the first time. At that moment, I hadn’t realized that not only was I about to become a Newcastle player, but I was also about to become a Geordie,” the 26-year-old wrote.
“You might think « nice Goodbye message » but the sentiment runs deeper than any words I could say, from the very first months that I met the people of this city, I truly understood them and embraced their unwavering passion, which is why it was so important for me to give my all and if this meant to play injured or even not making statistics, I didn’t give a ---- as long as it would help my team.
“Believe me, I fell for Newcastle, I had great opportunities to leave during dark days, but that was too late I was already in love, I wanted, I needed, I had to stay for helping my team to save the club from Premier League relegation because it meant the world for me.
“Of course during those dark days some may have had their doubts, but I always believed in this club and look where we are today, it’s just so beautiful. I’m leaving Newcastle as it should always have been and that’s my greatest trophy because I was a part of it.
“A deep thank you to ALL of you, my teammates, the loyal fans, the staff, the Club, etc… I’ve seen all your messages, thank you and even though this chapter has ended, the story never stops. Newcastle is home now, I’ll continue to be your biggest supporter, I’ll watch every game and as long as the club keeps winning I’ll be the happiest man in the world… and for sure you will see me again 👀
“I love you, I love you sincerely, I love you like a Geordie brother. Once a Geordie, always a Geordie 🖤🤍”
Saint-Maximin has enjoyed a successful start to life in Saudi Arabia and scored his first goal for Al Ahli during their 3-2 victory over Al-Taawon on Saturday.
