Sharpe: Amad Diallo is Man Utd potential player

Manchester United Double winner Lee Sharpe has no doubts about the potential of Amad.

The 18-year-old winger has featured just four times for United since joining from Atalanta in January – each time as a substitute – but has impressed in the brief time he has had on the field.

Sharpe told the Manchester Evening News: “I think he’s got huge ability. A very young lad, and he looks quite tiny to be fair, so I’d be a little bit concerned with the physicality of the Premier League with him first game in.

“But I think given time around training and the first team I think he’ll be another good option. I haven’t seen a lot of him, but I know he’s got loads of ability, goes past people and scores goals.

“A training session is pretty much like a matchday, so he’ll be getting kicked and shoved around a little bit, so he’ll have to learn to stand up for himself and look after himself, so the manager will know that and he’ll know that.

“I’m sure it won’t be long before he gets his chance. To join a team like United is a big ask, but I’m sure he’s getting well looked after by the manager and the staff.”
