Punter wins £19,000 after outrageous Amad bet which will go down as best of the season

Punter wins £19,000 after outrageous Amad bet which will go down as best of the season

Take a bow.

A lucky punter has taken home £19,229.72 after placing an outrageous bet during Manchester United's 4-3 win over Liverpool.

Erik ten Hag's side booked their place at Wembley next month with a dramatic quarter-final victory against their bitter rivals.

United took the lead through Scott McTominay in the first half but went into the break behind after goals from Alexis Mac Allister and Mohamed Salah.

Antony levelled for the Red Devils late in the second half to take the game to extra-time.

Harvey Elliott's deflected effort restored Liverpool's lead before the chaos started.

Marcus Rashford equalised for United and Amad, making only his fourth appearance of the season, slotted home the winner.

The 21-year-old celebrated wildly in front of the Old Trafford crowd and even removed his shirt.

Amad received a second yellow card for removing his shirt after receiving a caution earlier in extra-time.

While that means he'll miss United's next game against Brentford on March 30, one punter will be delighted with the outcome.

They decided to whack £100 on the Ivory Coast international getting booked and scoring during his short period on the pitch.

Amad managed to do both and make someone very, very rich in the process. Fair play.

Speaking to ITV Sport post-match, Amad admitted he forgot about the first yellow card.

He said: "What a game. I think we deserved this win. We played very good, one of the best games of the season also.

"I forgot the first yellow. I'm very disappointed for that, a red card, but the most important for me is to win and against a big team like Liverpool is a big, big moment for me."

"Everyone came to me and said congratulations. I want to thank everyone, the fans were superb all game."

United will now battle Championship outfit Coventry City for the opportunity of a second successive FA Cup final.

They'll be looking to exact revenge on Manchester City, who beat them 2-1 last June.

City will take on Chelsea in the other semi-final. Both games will take place on the weekend of April 20-21.
