Since he signed, us Manchester United fans have been desperate for some information in regards to when Amad Diallo may make his debut.
Now, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has offered us some insight on that.
For me, I always felt like Diallo would be treated like Facundo Pellistri. He’d be slowly eased into things with the Red Devils’ U23s side, before potentially making his first-team appearance at some point late on in the season.
Well, ahead of United’s game against Fulham at Craven Cottage tomorrow, the gaffer has given us some insight in regards to when we could see Diallo take to the field.
What’s intriguing is that it might come quicker than we all think. The Baby Faced Assassin was asked if it’d be within four or five weeks, with Solskjaer confirming we could see him sooner than that.
Here’s what Solskjaer had to say:
“It might be quicker than [four or five weeks], who knows? He’s definitely settled down well, the players have taken to him, he’s a very good character, a very polite, smiley boy who works really hard.” Solskjaer told reporters, including the Manchester Evening News.
“He’s doing his sessions, getting used to us, of course, there’s always a period of adjustment needed but he’s settling in well.”
This is all quite exciting, isn’t it? We’ve been bereft of a true right-winger all season and now that Diallo is here, that problem may well be about to become a nonexistent one.
My only concern is about throwing Diallo in too early. Obviously, he’s young and still learning his trade, though Solskjaer and the coaches are already talking very highly of the young kid.
Sometimes, though, that youthful exuberance can make all the difference so here’s hoping Diallo can hit the ground running when given his chance over the next month.
Who knows, Amad Diallo may well be the final piece in the puzzle for this improving United side. Fingers crossed he’s lifting a Premier League title come May!
