Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin has not played since the game against Chelsea in November and there have been rumors of a dispute between the player and manager Steve Bruce.
According to the Chronicle’s Lee Ryder, the report of a dispute between the player and the coach is not true and the player has been on the sidelines with a calf injury.
In addition, Newcastle has decided to let the player update his unavailability for privacy reasons.
Suggestions of a fight between Steve Bruce and Allan Saint-Maximin are false according to #nufc sources. Saint-Maximin has not played since a calf injury before the Palace game. For privacy reasons, #nufc they have let individual players update their unavailability.

The 23-year-old winger has been one of the best players in Newcastle over the past year and fans are hoping to have him back in the starting lineup soon.
He’s managed to make a big impression in the Premier League since moving to Newcastle United last year and the last thing fans would want is for him to get into a fight with the manager.
It will be interesting to see how his injury situation unfolds in the coming weeks and if he can return to action soon.
Newcastle United hopes to secure a respectable finish in the Premier League this season and will need its key players to be fit and shooting to achieve that.
Allan Saint-Maximin has made just eight Premier League appearances for Newcastle United so far this season and has a goal and an assist to his name.
The Frenchman hopes to reach his best form as he did last season when he returns to action after his injury.
Some of the Newcastle United fans have taken to Twitter to react to Lee Ryder’s report on the situation and this is what they had to say.
Do you believe that? Genuine question.

If you think Lee you will believe anything

Well, that confirms to me that there has absolutely been a fight. When, in the world of soccer, is it up to individual players to “update their unavailability”? Something is definitely wrong there.

Lee stops defending the club, all the ASM liars have left without a single sound which is not normal and he also has not been on Twitter for a long time so something is not right.

This is simply not true.
