Solskjaer has high hopes with his new signing Amad Diallo but will not rush the wonderkid into the first-team this season despite United’s refusal to let him stay on loan at Atalanta.
Amad Diallo’s arrival at Manchester United has built up excitement although fans would be advised to exercise patience when it comes to the 18-year-old.
While Solskjaer has hinted that Diallo will train with United’s first-team squad, it is far certain that he will make his debut in English football anytime soon. Nonetheless, United rightly believe that Diallo is a brilliant talent who will play a prominent role for them in the future.
Meanwhile, it should be remembered that the Ivorian’s experience of first-team football is extremely limited. Just five first-team appearances amounting to a mere 59 minutes for Atalanta over the past 15 months.
Solskjaer is not foolish enough to chuck Diallo into the hurly-burly of a Premier League game and hopes he swims rather than sinks. He said, “It is important we give him that time to settle in. If it’s in the under-23s or if he looks ready to go into the first team, I don’t know yet”.
But, given time, Diallo could be the solution to United’s problem area of the right-side of their forward line. In this case, United will hope he can explode onto the scene next season.
