Manchester United Star Amad Ruled Out for Start of Season Due to Knee Injury

Manchester United have confirmed that Amad will miss the first part of the 2023/24 campaign with a knee injury suffered during pre-season.

The Ivorian had a productive loan spell with Sunderland in the Championship last term. He scored 14 goals and provided four assists from 42 appearances.

The 21-year-old was involved for United during the early part of pre-season, but unfortunately picked up a knee injury in the 2-0 victory over Arsenal.

Amad was surprisingly back on the bench for the friendly against Real Madrid, but manager Erik ten Hag decided against involving him in the 2-0 loss.

The Atalanta graduate has now been officially declared out for the rest of the season by United.

Preseason play for United has been inconsistent so far. They started up with three straight wins before suffering losses to Real Madrid and Borussia Dortmund.

They have also seen a few setbacks due to injuries in the interim. At the beginning of the preseason, Kobbie Mainoo was a revelation, but he suffered an ankle injury against Madrid.

Rodrygo was knocked to the ground by Casemiro’s purposeful shove, landing on Mainoo’s left ankle. The 18-year-old was struck barely two minutes into the friendly.

For the first half of the season, Mainoo is already out. Amad’s injury has now dealt United a similar blow, keeping him out until the new year.

Since moving from Atalanta for €21 million in January 2021, Amad has shown flashes of his promise, but he hasn’t developed the consistency to make the first-team roster.

He had the possibility to demonstrate his qualifications this summer, but due to his setback, he will be unable to do so. I’m hoping he recovers more quickly than we think.
