Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo shows class with a nice assist as Ivory Coast beat Saudi Arabia at Olympics


Amad Diallo is a special talent and he is putting Manchester United fans in the mood ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

The youngster made a great assist for Franck Kessie during the Olympic opener of Côte d’Ivoire against Saudi Arabia.

After picking up the flank, the 19-year-old dove inside before laying Kessie down to sneak around the corner.

It came after a calm first half for the youngster, who provided some silky touches but struggled to get into the game.

Eyebrows were raised when Diallo arrived from Atalanta for a fee which could reach £ 37million last year.

The winger was first included in United’s Under-23 squad but was quickly promoted to the first team after a strong performance.

And he had an instant impact off the bench to score his very first goal for United against AC Milan in the Europa League.

Amad broke the defensive line to grab an ingenious crossing ball from Bruno Fernandes and lobbed Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with a header while facing goal.

The goal was reminiscent of the one Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored for United against Stoke in 2010 – and a perfect way for Amad to announce himself to Red Devils fans.

Old Trafford loyalists will be looking for him for a stellar campaign next season – with new boy Jadon Sancho.
