Manchester United star Amad Diallo spotted back in training after three months out
A big boost.
Manchester United winger Amad Diallo has taken a significant step in his recovery from a serious knee injury.
The Ivory Coast playmaker has been out of action since the start of pre-season, when he injured his knee ligaments.
Diallo enjoyed an impressive loan spell with Sunderland last season and was named the Black Cats’ player of the year.
The former Atalanta winger had hoped to break into United’s first team this term following his year in the north-east but his injury scuppered his chance of impressing Erik ten Hag in pre-season.
But the good news for Diallo is that he’s now closing in on a return, and he was able to train on the grass at Carrington today.
The majority of Ten Hag’s squad were given the day off following the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City but Diallo participated in an individual session.
The winger will be hoping to feature in a matchday squad before the international break but a more realistic return is pencilled in for the end of November.
United have struggled for goals this season, and have a -5 goal difference in the Premier League.
Marcus Rashford, Rasmus Hojlund, Anthony Martial and Antony have just one Premier League goal between them this campaign.
