Amad Diallo likes a tweet telling him Manchester United 'isn't worth his time'

The former Atalanta star has been warming bench at United for years

Manchester United winger, Amad Diallo, recently found himself in the midst of a social media controversy. He liked a tweet from an anonymous Sunderland fan on X - formerly known as Twitter - suggesting that he should return to his former club due to his limited opportunities at Old Trafford. However, this online interaction was quickly deleted.

The post read: 'Here, Amad Diallo - if they’re not going to start you in the FA Cup away at Newport County it really isn’t worth you giving them your time. Come home, come somewhere you are truly appreciated . . .'

Diallo arrived in 2021 with big baggage of expectations

Diallo joined Manchester United three years ago during Ole Solskjaer's managerial reign after a £37million transfer from Serie A. His potential was highly anticipated; however, his career has been stop-start since his arrival due to long-term injuries.

Recently returning to full fitness following an injury setback, the Ivorian is eager to kickstart his senior career with the Red Devils.

Last season saw Diallo loaned out to Championship side Sunderland where he made quite an impact. In 42 appearances across all competitions for the Black Cats, he scored 14 goals and played a crucial role in helping them reach the Championship playoffs.

Despite loan spells, he hasn’t cracked into first-team

Despite showing promise during his loan spell and recovering from injury recently, opportunities have been scarce for Diallo this season with Manchester United. He has only made one appearance so far and was notably left out of Sunday’s FA Cup fourth-round victory over League Two side Newport County.

In fact, fellow youngsters Alejandro Garnacho and Brazilian winger Antony were chosen ahead of him for starting positions in recent matches. The only time Amad got on the ball during their weekend clash was during the warm-ups.

The deleted tweet incident has highlighted Diallo's frustration with his current situation at Manchester United. While it remains to be seen how this will impact his future at Old Trafford, one thing is clear - Diallo is a talented player eager for more game time. Whether he finds that opportunity at Manchester United or elsewhere is a story yet to unfold.
