Manchester United fans demanded the return of Ahmad Diallo (20, Sunderland) and a starter.
Diallo, a Côte d’Ivoire national, joined Manchester United in the 2020-21 season after playing for Atalanta. Man United highly evaluated Diallo’s talent and signed him for a fairly high price of 40 million euros (approximately 58 billion won) including options.
Diallo is a wing forward with excellent ball handling skills and dribbling skills. Although he has physical weaknesses at a young age, he has speed and a wide field of view is also his strength. Based on the left foot, it is possible to digest both attacking midfielders and side midfielders.
Diallo made his first-team debut in his first season and showed his potential. However, his competition for the starting lineup was tough. Diallo’s playing time has been drastically reduced as Manchester United signed Jadon Sancho for the 2021-22 season. In the end, he chose to rent Rangers, and this season, he was pushed by Anthony and headed to Sunderland to find a chance in the second division.
Diallo is on loan, but he is active as a main resource in Sunderland. He scored 13 goals in 37 league appearances. As a whole season, he is showing growth as expected of Manchester United with 13 goals and 4 assists in 41 games. 안전놀이터
In the midst of this, Manchester United fans are hoping that Diallo will start after returning next season. Britain’s ‘The Sun’ said on the 8th (Korean time), “Fans are hoping that Diallo will return and start in place of Sancho and Anthony.”
Sancho has been sluggish this season due to frequent injuries and has scored only five goals in 22 league games. Anthony, who recorded a transfer fee of 100 million euros (approximately 170 billion won), is in a similar situation with 4 goals in 22 league matches. According to the media, Manchester United fans hoped for Diallo’s return, saying, “Sell Sancho and bring back Diallo” and “It is several times better than Anthony.”
