Manchester United fans react as Amad Diallo makes his first-team debut
It was a night to remember in Turin for Manchester United and Amad Diallo in the Europa League.
The Red Devils saw off a couple of early scares to stamp their authority on the game. They ran Real Sociedad ragged and came away 4-0 winners on the night. It would be fair to assume that the tie is as good as done.
While Bruno Fernandes & co. took the accolades for the goals, Amad Diallo wrote what could be a small yet significant note in United history.
Having joined the club only last month, there was a lot of hype surrounding the Ivorian wonderkid. He had impressed in the Under-23s and it was only a matter of time before he made his first-team bow.
That moment came late in the second half with the game done and dusted. The 18-year-old looked up to the challenge and showed glimpses of promise. He completed 3/3 dribbles in just 12 minutes, more than any other player on the pitch.
There is still some way to go before Diallo begins to start games on a regular basis. But for now, he has had his first taste of action and surely be eager for more.
We take a look at how fans reacted to the moment on Twitter.

There’s something about him and you like it. Didn’t get so much time though.— H u s s e i n 7⃣ (@imhpio) February 19, 2021
I would get him on sooner instead of Martial. It was a game he could build a lot of confidences to fit in.
Hope to see more from Amad soon.
