’s. The

Newcastle United

player has proved himself as one of the best players in the Premier League during the last three campaigns.

However, Saint-Maximin is mostly known for his skills in dribbling as well as trickery than end products in the final third that is consistent.

In the 2021-22 season, the 25-yar-old had 238 attempts and completed 139 of dribbles in the league.

However, Saint-Maximin has met the back of the five times and contributed four assists. His last goal was against Watford back in January. Sadio Mane, on the other hand made 81 attempts in dribble and 44 of them were successful but he has found the target 14 times, providing two assists.

Yet Saint-Maximin told So Foot:

"Those who have played with me know very well that, in terms of pure quality, I have no reason to envy Sadio Mane."

The Magpies top scorer is Callum Wilson who netted six goals notwithstanding being sidelined due to injury since December, returning to training this week.

Chris Wood has scored twice since his move in January, with Newcastle highly expected to invest in the front this summer; therefore, they have been linked with Darwin Nunez and Patrik Schick.

"Doing things that make an impression, changing the rules, that's the goal,"

he said.

"Like what Michael Jordan managed to do.

"Jordan, he changed some people's lives, he gave people work, and that's the beauty of it."
