Amad Diallo gets rewarded for strong Manchester United form

Manchester United winger Amad Diallo has been rewarded for his Manchester United form with a call-up to the Ivory Coast senior team.

The 18-year-old, who officially joined the club in January from Atalanta for a fee of up to €40million (£36m), will join up with the Elephants for their final two Africa Cup of Nations qualifying games against Niger and Ethiopia.

After impressing for the U23s, Diallo made his debut for the first team as a substitute for Mason Greenwood in the Europa League during the 4-0 win at Real Sociedad in the first leg of the round of 32.

He then scored his first Manchester United in the 1-1 Europa League draw against AC Milan at Old Trafford after replacing Anthony Martial at half-time.

Diallo is yet to start a game for Manchester United but that could change before the end of the season.
