Amad Diallo, a winger for Manchester United, has made progress toward healing from a major knee injury.
Since the beginning of the preseason, the Ivory Coast playmaker has been out due to a knee ligament injury.
After an outstanding loan stint with Sunderland the previous season, Diallo was voted the Black Cats’ player of the year.
After spending a year in the northeast, the former Atalanta winger had wanted to make an impression on Erik ten Hag in the preseason by breaking into United’s first squad this season. However, his injury derailed his hopes.
The good news for Diallo, though, is that he’s getting closer to making a comeback and that he was able to work out on the Carrington grass today.
After Ten Hag’s team lost 3-0 to Manchester City, most of the players were off the next day, but Diallo took part in an individual practice.
The winger’s more likely return date is the end of November, however he will be aiming to be included in a matchday squad before the international break.
United has had difficulty scoring goals this season and currently leads the Premier League with a -5 goal differential.
Between them this season, Marcus Rashford, Rasmus Hojlund, Anthony Martial, and Antony have all scored just one Premier League goal.
