The youngster provided another timely reminder of his talents on Friday


Footage of Manchester United starlet Amad Diallo’s latest endeavours whilst out on loan will no doubt pique attentions across the club’s fanbase on Friday evening.

This comes after the Ivorian kept alive an impressive recent stretch of individual form.

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

His ensuing spell in England’s 2nd tier has since proven an altogether hit-and-miss affair, en route to starts in just six of the Black Cats’ 20 fixtures.

Recent weeks, though, have seen Amad, step by step, begin to find his feet.

After finding the net against both Burnley and Huddersfield Town since late October, this evening, the former Atalanta talent truly grabbed the headlines.

Upon Sunderland making the trip to St. Andrew’s for a meeting with Birmingham City, Amad, as expected, was made use of from the off.

And the 20-year-old wasted little time in making his presence known, teeing up Ellis Simms’ opener midway through the first-half of action:

The best, though, was yet to come.

Shortly after the interval, Amad was picked out on the right flank, with space in front to drive into the hosts’ penalty area.

The talented attacker, in turn, duly obliged, before jinking inside onto his favoured left foot, and directing an unstoppable bending effort into the far top corner.

Check out Amad’s moment of magic - which ultimately proved decisive en route to a 2-1 Sunderland victory - below:
