Erik ten Hag confirms Man United plans for Amad Diallo

Manchester United head coach Erik ten Hag has, on Friday evening, provided an insight into the future of youngster Amad Diallo.

Amad, of course, was farmed out on loan once more last summer, making the move to the Championship to line out for Sunderland.

And his ensuing spell in England’s 2nd tier, after a shaky start, has since proven an altogether positive experience.

All told, across his 37 appearances to date, the Ivorian has directly contributed to a none-too-shabby 16 goals.

In fact, so impressive has Amad looked that, after what was widely expected to mark his final appearance at the Stadium of Light (prior to the club booking a spot in the Championship playoffs), the winger was provided with a rousing reception by way of the Sunderland faithful:

With Amad still just 20 years of age, excitement back at Old Trafford, in turn, is beginning to mount.

Speaking to the media on Friday, it therefore came as little surprise when the subject of Amad’s future was put to United boss Erik ten Hag.

And though the Dutchman did not outright confirm that the attacker will be part of his squad in 2023/24, he did hint that Amad will soon have a role to play at the Theatre of Dreams, in responding:

“Yes, of course his future is at Man United. We loan players to make development and make progress to bring them back, that is the aim of the loan.”
