Ivory Coast winger Amad Diallo was on the Manchester United bench for the FA Cup game against West Ham on Tuesday.

It was his first appearance on the bench for the Red Devils since his move from Atalanta.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer explained why he named the teenager on the bench against West Ham.

“He’s been bright since he came, he did really well in the reserve games,” Solskjaer said of Diallo before the West Ham game.

“He’s a player who can create something out of nothing so he’s on the bench to make an impact if we need to.”
