Manchester United Fans Blown Away By Amad Diallo’s First-Touch Takedown Vs Fulham

Manchester United Fans Blown Away By Amad Diallo’s First-Touch Takedown Vs Fulham

Manchester United's teenage star Amad Diallo produced an utterly mouth-watering first touch in the Red Devils' game against Fulham on Tuesday night.

David de Gea fired the ball the length of the pitch and 18-year-old Diallo, without breaking his stride, watched the ball come over his shoulder and killed it stone dead at his feet with his first touch.

Absolute perfection as Diallo - with two defenders either side of him - showed what he could do, despite only arriving in the game with seven minutes left to play.

Ironically, Diallo's easier second touch wasn't actually quite as good as his first, but he still collected the ball and kept it under control as he looked to run at the Fulham defence.

The Ivory Coast-born player only arrived in Manchester in January having played five games for Atalanta in Italy. But he's still showed glimpses of his individual talent, including a superb backwards header against AC Milan in the Europa League; Diallo's first goal for the club.

Many fans were salivating over the touch from United's wonderkid against Fulham - and for the superb De Gea pass that preceded it.

The actual match against Fulham - something of a dead-rubber as United are sure to finish second this season, while Scott Parker's side are already relegated - finished 1-1.

However it was at least wonderful for the fans in attendance at Old Trafford to see a superb long-range strike from veteran Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani.

And, on the other end of the age scale, they a got a brief glimpse of what could be to come from Amad Diallo.
