Rio Ferdinand on Amad Diallo and whether he should get a chance

Rio Ferdinand, the legend of Manchester United and expert commentator of BT Sport, often gives interesting analyses. His comments also attract a lot of attention. This great defender commented on Amad Diallo. The young Manchester United player excelled on loan at Sunderland.

Many believe that starting next season, Erik ten Hag will give him a chance. However, there is also a chance that the club will send him on another loan. Rio Ferdinand emphasized that Diallo is a great player, but also that he currently has some shortcomings.

‘He is an interesting one,’ -Ferdinand said, as quoted by METRO. ‘He has got talent there is no doubting that. You can see the talent he has got but you can see he wasn’t robust enough at the time.'


The Championship is certainly another dimension to the Premier League, but we also know that the Championship is probably the strongest second league in the world. Diallo managed to secure a playoff with Sunderland.

His team failed to secure the playoff final, but even in those games, it was clear that Diallo is a great player. Ferdinand believes that this young winger should be given a chance. 'But that loan at Sunderland, he left that place a hero, an absolute god.

He plays on the right hand side too, a problem position for us. I know Antony has come in and done well but he is someone you can look at and say can he add something a bit different. I would like to see him given another opportunity.

There is a bit of unfinished business and I don’t know if he’s not good enough, not right for Man United or he is [good enough] because I haven’t seen enough.’ We will see if Erik ten Hag will really think about Amad Diallo.

It is certain that United will strengthen the team this season, and who knows, maybe their priority will be a player on the right wing.
