Manchester United youngster Amad makes injury return in under-23s defeat

Manchester United winger Amad made his injury return with a 90 minute run out for the club’s under-23 side yesterday.

The Ivorian came through the full game against Tottenham unscathed, but he couldn’t hide his disappointment as Neil Wood’s side lost 1-0 through a last-gasp goal from Spurs’ Dilan Markanday.

The 19-year-old hadn’t featured yet this season following an ill-timed muscle injury in August that has seen him miss the last two months of action.

His injury also scuppered a loan move to Eredivisie giants Feyenoord which looked ready to be sanctioned towards the end of the summer.

With his chances of featuring in the first team looking very slim, due to the strength in depth Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has in the attacking areas, Amad can build up his match fitness with the under 23s side.

Following his return to training earlier this month, the former Atalanta man has been able to return to the first team fold.

And with Voetball Primeur reporting the Manchester United wonderkid wants to move to Feyenoord in January, regular first team football could be on the horizon for Amad come the new year.

Voetball Primeur report Amad is impressed by Feyenoord’s style of play and considers that he can get regular playing time and have an important role.

Following a frustrating couple of months, it’s pivotal United get Amad’s loan move right to ensure his development doesn’t stagnate.

He’s a big talent, with a massive future, and similar to Anthony Elanga, the pair need to follow in the footsteps of Ethan Laird and Tahith Chong, and get regular first team action.

It’s great to see Amad back and it won’t be too long before he’s knocking on the first team door, challenging for places with some of the biggest names in Europe.
