Amad Diallo has provided an injury update after he suffered a knockback during Manchester United’s pre-season tour of the United States.
The 20-year-old winger was replaced during United’s 2-0 victory over Arsenal before being re-added to the lineup the next match.
But the club then announced that the Ivory Coast international would miss the first few weeks of the Premier League season due to a knee injury.
Amad recently on Instagram posted a picture of himself receiving treatment at Carrington. There was a picture of his swollen knee with the message, “Step by step.”
After a spectacular season in the Championship the previous year, it is questionable if Erik ten Hag actually intended to keep Amad in his lineup for the 2023–24 season, but the teenage winger will now have the chance at Old Trafford until at least the January Transfer Window.
His spot in the front three, on the right side, is currently fraught with serious difficulties. The Ivorian winger made 43 appearances for Sunderland last season, helping them advance to the playoffs with his 12 league goals and three assists.
The Black Cats were unable to defeat the eventual play-off Champions in the second leg of the semi-final, despite his wondergoal in the first leg against Luton Town.
Amad joined the team in the summer of 2020, but the transfer wasn’t completed until the following January because of problems with his work permit. He has since made nine first-team appearances.
