Saint-Maximin | Early Life & Family

Maximin was born in Chatenay-Malabry, France, on March 12th, 1997, to his mother, Nadege Saint-Maximin, and father, Alex Saint-Maximin.

Malabry is a commune in the southwest suburbs of Paris, France. The player’s full name is Allan Irenee Saint-Maximin.

Although Saint-Maximin was born in France, his mother’s side of the family is from Guyana, and his father’s side is from Guadeloupe. 

The Frenchman, just like the other soccer players Thomas Lemar, Dimitri Payet, and Kingsley Coman, Thierry Henry, is a member of the Guianese Creole ethnic group in France, which has ancestors from both the Caribbean and South America.

Alex, Maximin’s father, worked as an office administrator at Paris Diderot University, which is located in Paris, France. Likewise, his mother once served as the “director of education” at a well-known school there.

Growing up, young Saint-Maximin had a passion for dancing and fashion. His early affinity for headbands was a result of his fashionable way of life and has persisted to this day.

Allan was raised as the youngest child of the family. He has a sister named Cassandra and an elder brother named Kurtys.

Alex and Nadege instilled in their children a commitment to the Christian religion. The family was well off and never struggled with financial difficulty. As a result, Maximin had a comfortable life growing up.

Saint-Maximin | Education, Early Skills, & Values

The principles Saint-Maximin received from his parents and teachers at school enabled him to succeed as he grew up.

When Allan was a young boy, his mother used to give him €10 ($10.34) every time he left for school.

He used to buy candies with the money and give it to his friends, which was a sign of his early generosity. 

Without a coach or mentor, Saint-Maximin found and developed his athletic and soccer talent while he was a student.

While his parents were out for work, Maximin and his pals would engage in four-on-four competitions on the streets and courts in between apartment buildings.

The player mastered his dribbling skills during these games, which have become his trademark.

Saint-Maximin would hone his abilities in confined quarters while aiming to imitate the Brazilian soccer player Ronaldo and Ronaldinho’s signature movements.

However, as a youngster, Saint-Maximin was most influenced by the techniques of the countryman Robinho.

Saint-Maximin | Professional Career

Early Career

Saint-Maximin signed his first professional contract in June 2013. Two months later, at the age of 16 years, five months, and 17 days, Christophe Galtier gave him his Saint-Etienne debut against Esbjerg in the Europa League.

Likewise, the player turned down Arsenal’s approaches in 2014 and instead agreed to a new contract with Saint-Etienne due to his desire for playing time.

However, over the next two seasons, he made just 17 appearances, and his friendship with Galtier worsened.

Galtier was determined to depict Saint-Maximin as a problematic player when he signed with Monaco for £4 million ($4.75 million) in the summer of 2015.

Nevertheless, Saint-Maximin asserted that he had been “mistaken for a commodity” and that “a solution had to be found.”


Saint-Maximin was allowed to join rivals Nice in 2017 by Monaco.

Nice assumed Maximin’s worth would skyrocket after he was signed for a club-record £8.5 million ($10.09 million), but Monaco anticipated recovering more.

Monaco was determined that Saint-Maximin could not progress and was pleased to sell him.

On the other hand, Maximin had his chance to prove that he could be an outstanding player with the move to Nice.

Over the course of two seasons, Saint-Maximin successfully became a crucial team member, first for Favre and later for Patrick Vieira.

Saint-Maximin skipped a match against Angers in February 2019 because he claimed to be sick.

However, the club doctor had cleared him to play. The player responded with a tweet alleging an ankle injury after Vieira publicly questioned his “choice” not to participate.

Maximin was perhaps Nice’s finest player, but following that incident, his departure from Nice was unavoidable.

Newcastle United 

Saint-Maximin signed a six-year contract with Premier League team Newcastle United on August 2, 2019.

Nine days later, on the first day of the Premier League season, he made his league debut in Newcastle’s loss to Arsenal.

The player scored his first goal for the team on December 5 in a 2-0 victory over Sheffield United.

Two months later, he scored his second goal, a late winner against League One opponent Oxford United in the FA Cup’s fourth round.

The Frenchman also scored the game-winning goal in Newcastle’s 1-0 Premier League victory over Southampton on March 7, 2020. 

Will Saint-Maximin Play In The 2022 World Cup Qatar?

As mentioned before, Saint-Maximin won’t be playing in the 2022 World Cup Qatar.

The French national team manager Didier Deschamps has named his France squad for the World Cup, and it does not include Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin.

Even though Maxi has been vocal about his desire to represent his country in the World Cup 2022, he has not been called up to his national team.

It may have to do something with his injury, plus the winger has not played enough soccer this season.

Even though he performed well against Crystal Palace, it was too little too late. Hopefully, this snub will be a valuable lesson to the 27 year-old and inspire him to do even better.
