Solsksjer reveals his plans for Amad Diallo after Manchester United debut against Real Sociedad

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted United youngster Amad Diallo will be given more game time after making his maiden appearance for the first-team.

The Ivorian featured for 10 minutes against Real Sociedad on Thursday and the Norwegian is certain the player deserved to play.

Speaking to BT Sport after the 4-0 against Real Sociedad in the Europa League, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Amad Diallo getting closer and closer to his minutes.

“That is why we [Solskjaer and his coaching staff] felt towards the end when we had 3-0 up to let him enjoy his first 10 minutes for the club.

“We’ll make a decision on [whether to start him in the second leg]. But he’s had a couple of games in the reserves and we’ll take it lightly.”

After a brief cameo against the Spanish side, the player will be eyeing Sunday’s game against Newcastle as a potential first outing in the Premier League.
