Watch: Amad Diallo cheekily takes p*ss with keepy-uppies in local game
Manchester United winger Amad Diallo decided to showcase his skills during a kickabout with locals in the Ivory Coast.
Diallo agreed to join United last summer and completed a £19million move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.
After impressing with the Under-23s, he made eight first-team appearances for the club and scored his first goal in a 1-1 draw with AC Milan.
“He’s still a young lad, he’s 18 but of course we see top, top potential in him,” Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said in March 2021. “He’s a very good lad, very likeable, he works hard. Of course, he needs to adapt to a new country, a new language.
“He doesn’t speak English well enough still to feel confident enough to engage in the conversations – but that’s coming, he’s learning. We believe he has the attributes mentally, technically and physically to be a top player for us.”
The 18-year-old recently marked his second international appearance for Ivory Coast with a stunning 97th-minute free-kick against Burkina Faso.
He remained in the country for a fundraising football match and has since taken part in a kickabout with locals, showcasing his brilliant footwork with some keepy-uppies.
