Diallo in line to make United debut

Friday 29 January 2021 13:36

Supporters are set to get a first sight of Amad Diallo in a Manchester United shirt - when he makes his club debut in front of the MUTV cameras.

We will be showing the Premier League 2 match against Liverpool live on Saturday, with kick-off at 13:00 GMT, as Neil Wood's Under-23s are in action on Merseyside.

Diallo is set to play for the first time, after training with the first-team squad, as he is introduced to the English game, following his switch from Atalanta earlier this month.

The Ivorian youngster will hope to make a positive first impression for his new club after already catching the eye of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in training. And, of course, games at Under-23s level do not come any bigger than against our biggest rivals.

"Yes, Amad will play in the game against Liverpool in the Under-23s," Ole exclusively told MUTV's Stewart Gardner. "He's been training really well and settling in.

“He's ready to get some game-time and match exposure.

"I'm looking forward to seeing him. [Liverpool?] There you go. Welcome to English football!"

It is the Under-23s' second game of 2021, following the 4-2 away defeat to Leicester City last time out.

Diallo's debut in the Premier League 2 match is live on MUTV, with kick-off at 13:00 GMT on Saturday afternoon.
