Is it time for Amad Diallo to get his first Manchester United start? Read what Solskjaer has to say

Manchester United youngster Amad Diallo has impressed so far since signing up from Serie A side Atalanta.

The 18-year-old has made four appearances so far since making the switch in January, and got a vital goal in the Europa League against AC Milan.

Amad Diallo is yet to feature in the Premier League and is yet to start a game for United, as his four appearances have come in cup games.

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was asked if Amad Diallo will get a start in the Europa League game against Granada on Thursday, but he hinted that he wouldn’t and tended to suggest that he will get his first start soon enough.

Asked if Diallo is any closer to a first start in a United shirt, Solskjaer told reporters at his pre-match press conference on Wednesday: “Yeah of course he is. He’s getting more and more used to our expectations and standards and the training, the level and intensity in the games over here.

“So he did well when he played 45 minutes against Milan, definitely.

“Definitely a bright start and we’re gradually going to see him play more and more.

“And a start might come now [against Granada], it might come in a little while.”
