Cristiano Ronaldo returned to Carrington on Tuesday after the training ground re-opened following a Covid shutdown.
Ronaldo wasted little time sharing a picture from the training session, with the players overjoyed to be back together, preparing for what will be the team’s first match in 16 days.
Amad stars in Ronaldo picture
The photo Ronaldo shared caught the eye, due to a recurring theme. Ronaldo accompanied the picture with a caption ‘winning team’, with a group players posing after emerging victorious against their teammates. And once again, teenage talent Amad was among the winning group.
Amad being on the winning side in training has been seen in three similar pictures now in recent weeks. No other pictures have gone out with the same theme, without Amad.
Cristiano Ronaldo shared this image below, three weeks ago, with Juan Mata, Anthony Elanga and Harry Maguire also joining Amad as part of this week’s group too.
Then there was this picture shared by Dean Henderson five weeks ago, of a much smaller group, in which Amad featured once again.
Amad, 18, must be the secret weapon in training sessions to guarantee a win. It’s heartening to see him doing well behind the scenes after an unfortunate injury-hit start to the campaign.
Amad wins again
Amad’s training success has sparked conversation among United supporters, who enjoy seeing him regularly pop up as a ‘winner’ in the pictures shared by his teammates.
A clip emerged in November online of Amad from a United training session, which saw Amad showcase his skill with a rabona shot, and then leaving goalkeeper Dean Henderson grasping at his feet after leaving him floored with a piece of trickery.
Amad has only played one match this season due to injury and competition for places, and while a loan is possible in January, his strong training performances could end up causing interim boss Ralf Rangnick to keep him put and work with him more closely.
After Ronaldo’s photo was posted, Amad’s name was trending on Twitter as United fans took note of him being in the winning team…
