Manchester United striker Amad Diallo has revealed his enthusiasm for the game against Newcastle, which he ended with a fantastic goal.

United beat Eddie Howe’s men 3-2 at Old Trafford and Amad had a big say in the match.

The Ivorian has been sensational on his favored right flank and has left many wondering why he hasn’t been used more this season. He held the ball well and when he got the chance, he always caught his man.

Amad combined particularly well with Kobbie Mainoo, who also got on the scoresheet. It was Amad who assisted Mainoo.

But it was the winger’s goal that grabbed the headlines. He headed home from a corner to restore United’s lead soon after Newcastle had restored parity through Anthony Gordon.

After struggling for a few minutes earlier in the campaign, Amad now seems to have convinced Ten Hag of his abilities and what he can bring to the table.

Ten Haag has now started the winger in back-to-back games and the player has repaid the coach’s faith in kind.

Amad spoke to the press after the game and revealed that he had been waiting for his chance and it certainly wasn’t easy and it wasn’t handed to him on a silver platter.

The 21-year-old said: “Today the team was motivated to play this game and I could see my team-mates fighting for everything. We are happy to win the last game at home.”

“This is my first Premier League goal for #mufc, and I hope to score more.”

“I am happy for myself. In the first half I tried to do the same and didn’t score, so when I had the second chance I thought ‘Why not?'”

Amad added: “I’ve worked hard for this moment. This season has not been easy for me because I got injured in the pre-season.”

“But to score this goal in the last game at home is a great feeling for me. I waited a long time for the first start, but I went step by step.”

Amad is now likely to start against Brighton this weekend and even possibly in the FA Cup final at Wembley a week later.
