‘Hopefully he’s a special one for the future’ – Owen Hargreaves gives verdict on Manchester United player

Former Manchester United midfielder Owen Hargreaves has hailed youngster Amad Diallo as a special talent and expects the player to have a huge impact at Old Trafford after his United debut against Real Sociedad.

Speaking about Amad Diallo’s debut for Man United against Real Sociedad, Owen Hargreaves told BT Sport: “Well, I think when you sign players for that amount of money, you want them to have an impact.

“They obviously believe in him and that’s why he was on the bench tonight and came on. (Anthony) Martial and (Marcus) Rashford are setting the levels of what it means, but for the money they paid, they’re going to want a pretty significant impact.

“For Jadon Sancho, that category of player is already established, but Diallo is at the start (of his career). Hopefully he’s a special one for the future.”
