The Young Kid used to be play for the Italians before Man United secured his move to Old Trafford
Man United ahead of their clash against Atalanta has been warned by their youngster of what they must do to help them to victory against the Serie A side.
From 2019 into 2021, Amad Diallo spent time with Atalanta and have gotten to under how the team pattern works, no wonder he got playing time with even the senior team despite being a very young lad.
Although the number of games he featured for senior side was only 4 league games but he managed to net a sensational one goal.
With United set to lock horns with his former side, Amad Diallo seems to have put his love for his former side behind considering his message for his fellow United players.
It’s although unlikely he would be getting a play time against the side but following his comments, it appears Diallo hopes for victory against the side he has warned to be a major threat.
“We must not underestimate Atalanta,” Diallo said in the press conference today. “If you underestimate Atalanta, you are making a huge mistake.”
“If you lose the ball, then you’re in trouble because they run so much and they’ll get it.
“The [Atalanta] wingers, [Robin] Gosens and [Ruslan] Malinovsky, are strengths of theirs, they will give you a difficult game. Even when they don’t have the ball, they will run a lot, especially those two.
“You know, to represent the team in the UCL is a dream. We’re talking about Man United, we’re not talking about a small team, we’re talking a team that’s won so much.
“They [Atalanta] have got a great coach, a great team and they have got good fans. They press high, they don’t let you play and they put you in difficulty.”
Just like Donny Van de Beek’s case, Amad Diallo has been out of action, although his case has been accredited to an injury that prevent his late loan move last summer.
Following Ole Solskjaer’s comments in today’s press conference, it appears a loan move is already lining up for the Ivorian come January.
“Of course we signed Amad and watched them [Atalanta] quite a lot. They have an attacking philosophy which many fans of football would like,” Ole said.
“We have to make a decision before Christmas about whether he will play enough here or go somewhere else.
“Amad trained his first session last week before Leicester. Still continuing his rehab, will probably play in the Under-23s when he is ready for that.”
