Exciting news has surfaced for Manchester United as the club provides a rare positive injury update that fans have eagerly awaited.
The official Manchester United website has confirmed that Amad Diallo has successfully returned to full training with the first-team squad.
Amad’s journey so far has been filled with anticipation since his signing from Atalanta in late 2020, materializing in 2021.
He made an immediate impact, showcasing his skills in under-21 games and contributing a goal in a memorable Europa League clash against AC Milan at Old Trafford.
Additionally, he notched his first Premier League assist in a match against Leicester City, setting up a goal for Mason Greenwood.
However, his progress faced some interruptions. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer excluded him towards the end of 2021, and a loan spell at Rangers under Ralf Rangnick proved to be a mix of promising flashes and adaptation challenges.
The pivotal loan at Sunderland during the previous season was a major success, with Amad impressively scoring 16 goals across various competitions.
Pre-season was poised to be a showcase for Amad’s talents until an unfortunate knee injury sidelined him. Now, with his return to full training, there’s an opportunity for him to be Manchester United’s wildcard.
Manager Erik ten Hag has displayed a willingness to give young players a chance, as seen with the likes of Alejandro Garnacho and Kobbie Mainoo.
Amad, with his versatility to play on the wing, in attacking midfield, or up front, brings an added dimension that could prove crucial for the team.
His loans, especially in the Championship, tested his adaptability to English football’s physicality, and he emerged successfully.
With uncertainty surrounding January signings, having Amad back in the squad could be a significant boost for Manchester United in the latter half of the season.
The news of Amad’s return to full training is not only a positive development for the player but also a welcome boost for the manager and the entire first-team squad.
