Amad makes a joke about Ronaldo's winning team post

Manchester United youngster Amad has built up a reputation of being the lucky gem when it comes to being on the ‘winning team’ in training.

But in yesterday’s session which saw Cristiano Ronaldo, Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba all return, the Ivorian was nowhere to be seen this time around, much to his surprise and dismay.

The victors at Carrington yesterday were Ronaldo, Rashford, Pogba, Donny van de Beek, Luke Shaw, Phil Jones and Tom Heaton.

Jadon Sancho couldn’t resist making a playful dig towards Ronaldo, following the session, and Amad has weighed in with his thoughts as well, claiming the picture must have been a mistake.


Also wanting a piece of the action, United midfielder Nemanja Matic claimed that Ronaldo was only on the winning team because the Serbian wasn’t playing.

It was only last week that interim boss Ralf Rangnick gave fans a greater insight into the ‘winning team’ posts that have become a regular feature, following the highly-competitive training sessions at Carrington.

Speaking to the club’s official website, Rangnick explained: “I mean, yesterday, we played 7v7 in a tournament with three teams.

“The other week, we did the same with 5v5 so we do that, depending on the number of players that are available.

“I’m a big fan of doing that once per week, those kind of competitions, because the players need to perform on a high level.

“The workload is good and you can see nobody can hide if you play 7v7 or 5v5. Everyone has to show up. If he doesn’t do that, it becomes obvious for the head coach and the team members.”

But most importantly, fans will be hoping that the ‘winning team’ posts on social media start to translate into wins on the pitch for Manchester United.
