Manchester United's young star, Amad Diallo, has made a triumphant return to full training with the first team following a knee injury. The 21-year-old sustained the injury during a match against Arsenal in New York on July 23 and has been sidelined since then. However, after starting light individual work in October, he is now back at Carrington for full training.
Amad's return to training is undoubtedly a significant boost for the Manchester United squad. The youngster could potentially make the first-team squad for the upcoming visit of Bournemouth this weekend. His presence will certainly add more depth and options to Erik ten Hag's side.
Last season saw Amad on loan with Sunderland in the Championship where he made quite an impression. He featured prominently in pre-season games and even made it into the squad for the tour of the United States.
During his time at Sunderland, Amad was voted as PFA Fans' Player of Year due to his outstanding performance that included contributing 14 goals and four assists. This impressive record quickly turned him into a fan favourite among Sunderland fans.
With Jadon Sancho out and Antony struggling, Erik te Hag does not have many options on the right flank
Despite being hopeful about forcing himself into Erik ten Hag's plans this season, his injury during pre-season denied him an opportunity to make an impression stateside. Antony was initially chosen as first choice on right wing last season but lost his starting role this campaign; Marcus Rashford recently played there until he was benched against Chelsea.
Staff members at Manchester United believe that Amad Diallo needed a run of games to prove his quality - something which they feel was achieved during his successful loan spell at Sunderland.
Amad's return to full training is great news for both Manchester United and its fans. His previous performances have shown that he has the potential to be a key player for the team, and his recovery from injury will hopefully allow him to continue building on these successes in future games.
