EPL: He was superb – Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer reveals player that caused Man City problems

Published

on

Newcastle legend, Alan Shearer has identified winger, Allan Saint-Maximin as the player that caused Manchester City problems after their 3-3 draw at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Shearer said Saint-Maximin was superb against Man City on Sunday, adding that he was very difficult to stop during the encounter.
Saint-Maximin put in a brilliant display as Newcastle drew with Pep Guardiola’s side at home.
The 25-year-old French star set up goals for Miguel Almiron and Callum Wilson and was fouled for a free-kick which Kieran Trippier curled into the top corner.
Reacting after the game, Shearer told BBC Sport, “Allan Saint-Maximin ran Kyle Walker ragged. The England full-back had his socks on inside out at full-time. I can’t remember a player running past him as many times as that in a game. There is no doubt Saint-Maximin has the ability. His final ball was superb against City.
“The Frenchman has provided four assists for Callum Wilson in the league now – the most he has given for any Newcastle player – which just shows the understanding that the pair have. If they can stay fit, then they will create chances, particularly if Saint-Maximin plays like that. When he is on song, he is very difficult to stop.”

Sunday Oliseh Fires Back at Obi Mikel, Calls Him “Kid” Over Coaching Jibe

Published

on

Former Super Eagles coach Sunday Oliseh has responded to Obi Mikel’s criticism of his coaching abilities, calling the former captain a “kid” who needs help.

 

Oliseh, who coached the team from 2015 to 2016, highlighted his achievements, including winning the Best Manager of the Season award in the Jupiler League and leading Fortuna Duesseldorf to promotion from the second division.

 

He expressed his willingness to help Mikel, whom he considers a youngster, noting that achieving legend status requires more than just talking on a podcast.

 

Oliseh’s response comes after Mikel questioned his coaching expertise on a recent podcast, sparking a war of words between the two former teammates.

“I think the kid (Mikel) needs help, to be honest. There’s something I’ve not really shown much, I won the best coach for the first period of the Jupiler League, which is in the Dutch league”, Sunday Oliseh said.

 

“That was not voted by the press, that was voted by the players and the coaches of the league.

 

“I’m the only, and the first coloured man from Sub-Saharan Africa to ever win this title with a club like Fortuna Duesseldorf, who had very average players who were able to qualify from the second division from last position to the first division, where they still are now.

 

“I don’t need to justify myself being a good coach or anything to the kid. I call him (Mikel) a kid because my son is 27 years old.

 

“When he made this statement, I heard about it, but I couldn’t go on television and start arguing with someone like him. It’s degrading as a coach, you don’t go into the media and start arguing with your player.

 

“But I would like to help the boy because I think he needs some help. You cannot become a legend with your mouth.

 

“You cannot achieve what you were not able to achieve on the pitch outside the pitch by talking on a podcast.”
