Manchester United Coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has revealed that Amad still has a lot to learn after helping Manchester United get a 1-1 draw against AC Milan, MySportDab reports.
The Red Devils opened the scoring in the second half thanks to the 18-year-old’s impressive headed finish.
AC Milan then equalised through Simon Kjaer’s last-gasp goal which gave them a crucial away goal ahead of the second leg next week.
United were clearly the second-best team for most parts of the game at Old Trafford, as AC Milan brought the fight to Solskjaer’s team.
AC Milan had two early goals ruled out for offside and a handball, before Harry Maguire missed a good chance to open the scoring for United in the first half.
The Red Devils later scored shortly into the second half when Amad’s cheeky header looped over Goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma and into the back of the net.
That was amad diallo’s for his first senior goal for Manchester United since he joined the club in January.
After the final Solskjaer praise Amad but revealed that he is still a work in progress to keep his place in the Manchester United Team.
“It’s good to see him play with freedom,” Solksjaer said.
“Brilliant pass from Bruno to make the goal. Amad scored a nice goal, but still has a lot to learn. He’ll get better.”
United went into Thursday’s match with good hopes after ending Manchester City’s unbeaten run over the weekend.
AC Milan were without likes of Ante Rebic, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and Hakan Calhanoglu at Old Trafford on Thursday.
The 1-1 draw leaves Manchester United with work to do in the 2nd leg at the San Siro next week.
