Amad Diallo was on the bench for the first time in the Premier League this season for Manchester United.

While it took a succession of injuries to Edinson Cavani, Nemanja Matic, Aaron Wan-Bissaka and Raphael Varane to create that opportunity, it gave Amad a front row seat for Cristiano Ronaldo’s latest supershow.

Ronaldo netted a brace as United beat Arsenal 3-2, on a personally historic night for the player.

The goals were Ronaldo’s 800th and 801st career strikes for club and country.

RONALDO NEEDS TO STOP WHINING.

Ronaldo’s goals will have inspired young teammate Amad, who just needs a chance to start showing what he is capable of.

Amad left a message in response to Ronaldo’s Instagram post, proclaiming him as the GOAT, an abbreviation for ‘greatest of all time’.

Watching Ronaldo in action on a big night at Old Trafford will be a huge inspiration to teenage talent Amad.

Amad gets the chance to train with Ronaldo every day, and he will want a chance this month to show what he can do.

Dependent on how new interim boss Ralf Rangnick wants to treat next week’s dead rubber Champions League game with Young Boys, it is possible Amad will get a chance.

Ronaldo’s impressive goalscoring feat drew reaction from a former Real Madrid star and a current one.

Iker Casillas posted an alien emoji to imply Ronaldo is out of this world, while Vincius Jr suggested he is simply the best.

Vinicius Jr was in a similar position to Amad, a young prospect at Real Madrid who was one day in awe of Ronaldo like the teenage United star, although he did not get to spend too much time in Spain with the forward.

Now with Ronaldo having left Madrid, Vincius Jr has begun to step up as a key player for Real. Amad will be looking to do the same, and more, a lot sooner for United.

Amad’s real dream will be getting the chance to play alongside Ronaldo, and Rangnick may decide to experiment and play the pair together,
