Manchester United’s Amad shares injury update as star explains Erik ten Hag reunion

Amad has indicated he is working his way back up to full fitness as he recovers from a knee injury suffered in pre-season.

The attacker was seen on crutches at New Jersey&aposs MetLife Stadium after being forced off with the issue during Manchester Uniteds friendly win over Arsenal.

He was seen holding his ankle upon sustaining his injury but the club said it is a knee injury that has kept him out of the first part of the season. Amad showed promise in pre-season after a fine year on loan at Sunderland.

The Ivorian netted 14 goals and recorded four assists in 42 matches as he helped the Black Cats reach the Championship play-off semi-finals.

New Manchester United signing Sofyan Amrabat has hailed Erik ten Hags mentality and believes he will thrive under his former boss.

The Moroccan worked under the Reds manager at FC Utrecht in the Eredivisie between 2015 and 2017 and says he was keen to reunite. Ten Hag was equally eager to bring in the midfield pivot, having held an interest in the player for some time.

United approached Fiorentina in January to enquire about Amrabat, who had enjoyed a successful World Cup, amid a long-term ankle injury to Christian Eriksen but were told no. United instead acquired Marcel Sabitzer on loan from Bayern Munich.

But Ten Hag now has his man, again on a loan that has cost United an initial 10 million. The Reds have the option of making his move permanent for the sum of 20m plus 5m in add-ons next summer.
