New boy Amad Diallo impresses in Manchester United training clip
There was much hype surrounding the arrival of Amad Diallo at Manchester United this month.
The 18-year-old has not only been compared to Lionel Messi but also Cristiano Ronaldo. Pretty big shoes to fill given the standing both superstars have in the game.
Diallo showed what the fuss was all about with a cool finish in training. The video that was uploaded on Instagram has got fans excited to see the new No.19 in action.
Diallo can be seen playing a quick one-two before firing an unstoppable shot into the far corner. The ball cushioned in off the inside of the post, giving the goalkeeper no chance.
His deadly finishing should hold him in good stead once he gets an opportunity to impress in the first-team. United for their part are ready to keep Diallo at the club while they are willing to loan out Facundo Pellistri. (h/t Metro)
Speaking just last week, Solskjaer admitted that Diallo has settled in well and has already been impressing in training. Given the videographic evidence, it is easy to see why.
Solskjaer also admitted that Diallo could be the solution to United’s woes at right-wing. Daniel James is today the only natural right-winger in the team. The prospect of Diallo developing into a dominant attacker on the right would be ideal. (h/t ESPN)
