Amad is getting ready for his first Manchester United pre-season.

He won’t know quite what to expect, having joined mid-January. What he will have been advised, is that there will be a lot of hard work ahead.

Amad will be put through his paces, with United’s coaches determined to increase the squad’s conditionining, fitness and endurance levels.

So it is little wonder Amad is hitting the gym to make sure he is ready for the tests ahead.

Pre-season is an opportunity

There may be a lot of hard work for Amad ahead during pre-season, but he should relish the opportunity ahead.


This will be his longest uninterrupted stint working with United’s coaches, and there will be four pre-season friendlies to try and make his mark.

There will be a smaller squad initially because several of United’s players have been or are still at the Euros or Copa America.

Amad can benefit from a tighter knit group which will provide him more coaching attention and more opportunity.

It really is a great chance for him to show what he is capable of and earn more first team opportunities for the start of the season.
