Manchester United winger Amad returned to training last week and he was spotted at Carrington with his teammates yesterday.

Amad was not called up to the Ivory Coast national team as he is just recovering from an injury which cancelled his loan switch to Feyenoord.

Now the winger is working hard to be ready if and when Manchester United need him amid an intense run of fixtures ahead.

Amad showcased pictures from Tuesday’s training session of him doing one on one work with fitness coach Paulo Gaudino.

Working towards a return

Amad will be desperate to be involved when Manchester United take on his former club Atalanta in the Champions League.

The expanded benches and five substitute rule gives Amad a greater chance of getting on than in Premier League matches.

 

He just has to ensure he is available for the upcoming home and away ties, and he is doing everything he can to try and prove his fitness.

From there he has to demonstrate to Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the coaching staff that he is sharp, and capable of making a surprise impact.

Amad is United’s secret weapon amongst an array of superstars – but Atalanta will be all too aware of the threat he can pose.
