Amad Diallo has 'unfinished business' at Man Utd and could solve 'problem position' for Erik ten Hag, says Rio Ferdinand
- Ferdinand urges Ten Hag to trust Amad
- Has been impressive for Sunderland
- Sees Amad as a solution for United's right flank
WHAT HAPPENED? The former Manchester United player expressed his belief that Amad could potentially address a 'problem position' at the club. Amad joined United from Atalanta in January 2021 and made an immediate impact while playing for the Under-23s. He was later promoted to the first team and scored his debut goal against AC Milan in the Europa League. Although his appearances for United were limited, he enjoyed a successful loan spell at Sunderland during the 2022-23 season. He scored 14 goals and contributed significantly to the team's run to the Championship play-offs.
Reports suggest that Amad will have the opportunity to impress manager Erik ten Hag during pre-season and earn a place in the first-team squad. The 20-year-old has showcased his versatility in attacking positions, often starting on the right wing, which coincides with the position occupied by Antony since his arrival from Ajax. Ferdinand sees Amad as a potential challenger for the right-wing role and believes he has "unfinished business" at Manchester United.
