Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin has been warned against parking his Ferrari wherever he wants.
The stylish Magpies winger is understood to have rubbed people at the club up the wrong way with his parking habits. Saint-Maximin, 25, started to park his £150,000 black Ferrari directly outside the training ground entrance marked out of bounds towards the end of last season.
The skilful Frenchman even squeezed between special bays reserved for his captain and manager. And after a notice ordering players not to block the entrance failed to deter the player, the club are now “addressing” the situation directly with the maverick.

Asked about Saint-Maximin’s parking skills, head coach Eddie Howe said: “That’s something that we will be addressing with him.
“My big message to him at the end of last season was, physically, we need to try to get more. That’s in every area of his game — more forward runs, getting in more goal-scoring positions.
“I wouldn’t say there’s a better player one-on-one from an attacking perspective than Maxi in world football. We need to get him the ball in better areas but the expectation of Maxi… he’s got to be able to deliver the physical effort I want from the team.”
Do you think Newcastle will finish in the top-six this season? Let us know in the comments section.
The winger has regularly got Newcastle fans off their seats with his dazzling footwork since signing from Nice in 2019. Yet despite him scoring just 11 goals throughout his time in the Premier League, his boss is convinced he is ready to kick on next season.
Howe continued: “He’s in a really good place. He looks happy. He’s trained well. He’s delivered everything we’ve asked him to deliver.
“We’ve pushed him physically and he has responded.”
