Amad has started training early to get ahead for Manchester United's pre-season

It is under a week since Amad started the Scottish Cup final for Rangers and won his first ever piece of silverware as a professional – and more than the rest of the Manchester United squad in 2021/22.

Now as he enters the summer break, Amad is not taking his eye of the ball at all. The winger is spending time working out, in a bid to return to Manchester United’s pre-season stronger than ever.

Amad is scheduled to be among the United players who will return when pre-season starts on June 27, as he is not on international duty.

The 19-year-old needs to bulk up and add more physicality to his frame as part of his development, and that is what he is doing as he hits the gym and works on his fitness.

Amad has started training early

Amad has started training early in an effort to stay in shape so he can impress new Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag.

Ten Hag supports the development of young players, handing debuts to 23 at Ajax, but insists young players must show they deserve opportunities, and are not just handed them.

Amad faces a big summer as he wishes to prove to Erik ten Hag that he should be in Manchester United’s squad for next season.

The alternative is he is sent out on loan to get more first team minutes under his belt.

One option, suggested by us, is for Manchester United to offer him on loan to Ajax as part of a deal to sign Antony.

Amad is not the only young Manchester United player this week to be pictured starting training early.

Anthony Elanga was pictured in the gym 24 hours after Manchester United’s season ended, while Dishon Bernard was also seen working out yesterday as he also looks to get a headstart for the 2022/23 campaign.

The young players have the right attitude, which at least gives them a chance, and it won’t be long until a few of the senior stars follow their lead too.
