Angry Amad Diallo Shares Image Of Nasty Cut After Manchester United Vs Granada
| Last updated
Manchester United's Amad Diallo shared his anger - and an image of his cut and swollen wrist - on social media after his side's 2-0 win over Granada.
The 18-year-old hot prospect arrived off the bench late in the Europa League quarter-final with United 1-0 up on the night (3-0 on aggregate) and cruising. However he still had time to make an impact.
The winger, who arrived from Atalanta in January, scored his first United goal in spectacular style in the previous round against AC Milan. And Diallo had an opportunity to score again on Thursday, but was denied by some cynical Granada defending.
The teenager caught the Spanish side on the counter-attack as they desperately sought a goal and raced away clear at Old Trafford.
However Luis Suarez (not that one, although maybe it runs in the name) tried to tug and hack him back - before his teammate Victor Diaz crudely barged Diallo to the turf. Bizarrely, the referee decided no foul had been committed, so neither Granada player was punished for their actions.
Post-match, Diallo reacted on Instagram. The teenager shared a picture of his wrist - which was swollen and had the skin broken from the fall - with the message 'No foul' and a fuming emoji.
While it's not exactly a serious injury that will keep Diallo from training or playing, it's pretty clear that the youngster was unimpressed with the referee's assessment and with Granada's roughhouse approach over the two legs.
The Spanish side picked up eight yellow cards and committed 24 fouls (that the officials counted) across the two legs against Man United, per the Metro. So clearly their approach was quite physical.
However after a 2-0 away win in the first leg, Edinson Cavani's early goal last night saw the tie slip further away at Old Trafford.

While Diallo couldn't add to his tally for United, he was on the pitch when Jesus Vallejo's late own goal made the result 4-0 overall and sealed United's semi-final meeting with Roma.
Arsenal will face Villarreal in the other semi-final after the north London side demolished Slavia Prague 4-0 away to win the tie 5-1.
Now ice that wrist, Amad, and hope that referees are watching a bit more closely in the Europa League next round.
