Amad Diallo Comp For Ivory Coast Leads To Fans Comparing Him As 'No 10 Playmaker Like Bruno Fernandes'
| Last updated
Manchester United sensation Amad Diallo left fans in awe with an impressive display for the Ivory Coast against Burkina Faso on Saturday.
The 18-year-old winger made three appearances for United in the Premier League last season after his £19m move from Atalanta.
And Diallo also played a part in the Red Devils' Europa League campaign as he scored in a 1-1 draw against AC Milan at Old Trafford in the first-leg round-of-16 tie.
The United starlet made his debut for the Ivory Coast in March as he came off the bench in his side's 3-0 win over Niger in their Africa Cup of Nations qualification match.
Diallo once again came off the bench for Ivory Coast and scored a sensational 97th-minute free-kick to seal a 2-1 win for his side against Burkina Faso.
The former Atalanta winger's highlights at the Olympique Alassane Ouattara have been turned into a stunning compilation by one fan.
One fan said: "Oh, that was amazing... happy for Amad. Hopefully, he will have more chances next season."
Someone else wrote: "I hope to see more of him in the first team next season."
While a third posted: "Amad is amazing! His style is not like [Marcus] Rashford or [Jesse] Lingard. He looks more like No 10 playmaker like Bruno [Fernandes]."
And a fourth added: "Wow, what a free-kick. This kid really shows that he's ready [and] he should get many chances next season."
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been impressed with Diallo since he arrived at Old Trafford and he rates him as a big prospect for the club.
Diallo admitted that he was "over the moon" to come to United and said the move was a "dream come true."
The Ivory Coast international told MUTV in January: "I'm over the moon to be here. I'm so excited to start here at Manchester United.
"It's a dream come true and I can't wait to start and play with the guys.
"I'm expecting a lot from my experience here and I'm looking forward to getting started."
