“Unfortunately, he’s not ready”
Before Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand have claimed that winger Amad Diallo is unlikely to feature in the plans of Reds manager Erik ten Hag.
Diallo, who has three years left on his current contract, arrives at Old Trafford from Atalanta in Serie A in 2021. He was sent on a six-month loan deal to Scottish giants Rangers last season, where he scored three table after 13 appearances. through competitions.
Speaking on Vibe with FiveFerdinand thinks the 19-year-old should be loaned out again to gain experience at the highest level. He say:
“Unfortunately, he’s not ready yet. He went to Rangers, couldn’t really join the team and affect their team, which tells you he’s not going to be joining Manchester United. Do you know what I mean?”
“Again, again, is he the right player? He doesn’t have the explosive pace they might be looking for; he’s a bit more agile, likes to dribble the ball. and tectonics like that, not running after everything and behind and things like that.”
The six-time Premier League champion added:
“I just think it’s a little early for someone like him to come in and put on that jacket. Yeah, I don’t think he’s close enough to the first team. If he had gone to Rangers and smashed it at Rangers, then he got his chance. But since he didn’t do anything, he’s going to be a bit down, and he’s the one we’re going to lend, I say.”
Diallo has been included in the Reds’ 31-man squad for their pre-season tour, where he hopes to prove his mettle against his new boss.
