Allan Saint-Maximin Replies To 'Helicopter' Fan Getting Lifetime Ban

The Newcastle United fan who exposed him on Tuesday night has reportedly been hit with a lifetime ban but Allan Saint-Maximin thinks the punishment is harsh, and he's responded in typically hilarious fashion.

On Tuesday night the Magpies left it very late to finally beat Oxford United in the fourth round of the FA Cup replay when Saint-Maximin scored in the second half of extra time.

His goal was met with one fan helicoptering his 'chap,' pulling it out and swinging it around quickly, with the video going viral. According to some reports the fan has picked up a lifetime ban, something the forward thinks is harsh.

'We Will Remember You Penicopter' might be the single greatest hashtag a footballer has ever used and it just adds to Saint-Maximin's growing reputation in the Premier League as everyone's favourite player.

The Frenchman reacted in gif form to the original video of the fan over zealously celebrating, when many players probably would have ignored the story that followed their goal.

Newcastle really needed the forward's goal as they'd thrown away a two goal lead in the replay and were under pressure from their League One opponents with penalties just four minutes away.

The win put the Magpies through to their first FA Cup fifth round in 15 years, when they reached the quarter final stage in 2006, and the first time in Mike Ashley's tenure as owner.

They will face Championship leaders West Brom in the next round and even the Baggies got in on the banter following the now infamous celebration. Taking to Twitter West Brom warned visitors ahead of the fifth round saying, "We would like to remind @NUFC supporters The Hawthorns is a windmill-free zone."

Saint-Maximin joined Steve Bruce's side in the summer from Nice and he's quickly become a fan favourite and integral to the team.

The 22-year-old has only scored one and produced one assist in the league so far this season but his energy, speed and endless running have undoubtedly improved the team.

As well as the FA Cup 'run' the north east side are doing better in the league than expected and are currently 12th place, seven points clear of the relegation zone.
