Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hinted at how he sees new-signing Amad Diallo fitting into the first-team’s positional plans.
Diallo, 18, was confirmed as a United player earlier this month after finally completing his transfer from Atalanta, the move was announced on the club’s official website.
Fans are licking their lips at the prospect of seeing their new-signing in action and hopefully we won’t have too long to wait.
Speaking to reporters ahead of his side’s FA Cup Third Round tie against Watford on Saturday, Solskjaer has spoken out about how he sees Diallo fitting in.
“I think he [Amad] is comfortable in many positions,” the Norwegian said, as quoted by The Sun. “Right-wing is probably the position he’s played the most, with his left foot coming inside.
“Then again, in the Champions League for Atalanta, he played on the left – he cut inside and he went outside, so he can play different positions for us.
“Let’s give him time to find his feet here in England and we’ll hopefully see him soon.”
United are lacking in the right-wing position after Daniel James’ continued poor form has forced striker Mason Greenwood to fill in, in a wider role.
Solskjaer will be desperate to add even more goals to his front-line as his side continue in their mission to mount their first serious title challenge since 2013.
With Diallo’s arrival now confirmed, fans should expect to see a more balanced team, and can perhaps look forward to seeing Greenwood plying his trade in his more familiar position up top.
