Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin took to social media today to question FIFA 22 producer EA Sports about his in-game stats.
Magpies Saint-Maximin’s outspoken man, of course, has proven to be one of the few bright sparks amid a completely difficult opening of the new Tyneside campaign.
Steve Bruce’s men, in total, have scored just three points on the board in six Premier League outings, knocking them out of the relegation zone only because of goal difference.
However, in the midst of such regrettable form, the aforementioned Saint-Maximin has continued to illuminate the landscape of English football.
The Frenchman, week after week, proves himself an absolute nightmare assignment for the opposing baselines, with ASM’s combination of touch, pace and frankness ensuring his status as one of the most explosive wingers on the continent.
However, what has set the 24-year-old apart so far in 2021/22 has been the introduction of a consistent finished product.
In his six league appearances to this point in the campaign, Newcastle’s star man has contributed directly to no less than five goals.
🗣️ “It reminds me of the goal George Best scored so many years ago!”
Would you hear that roar? 🤯

However, as described above, on Sunday, it is not the former Nice player’s efforts on the field, but rather away from him, that has seen him garner attention online.
This comes with Saint-Maximin having taken to Twitter to highlight a clip that has gone completely viral in recent days.
The video in question shows Newcastle celebrating a penalty shootout victory in a preview of the upcoming FIFA 22 video game. What has caused it to take social media by storm, however, is the fact that Magpies boss Steve Bruce can be seen beating the club’s stars, rushing onto the playing field.
ASM, in turn, has seen the fun side of things, highlighting its own 91-rated pace attribute in FIFA, to question why EA Sports has given its manager a 99 max:
