MANCHESTER UNITED were urged to be patient with wonderkid Amad Diallo by the club’s Under-23s coach Neil Wood.
Diallo, 18, arrived at Old Trafford in January for £37million from Serie A side Atalanta.

And the Ivorian-born forward has caused quite a stir with two stunning performances in United’s youth side – bagging three goal and three assists.
One piece of stunning link-up play with French prodigy Hannibal Mejbri in the 6-4 win over Blackburn left Red Devils fans drooling.
Wood said: “You see he has ability and he’s linking up well.
“He doesn’t really have a relationship with any of these boys here but he came to Liverpool on Saturday and did well and the same against Blackburn.
“He’s training with the first team and doing well and he’s still new to England and the style of football so it’s going to take time.
“Like all young players you have to be patient with them.
“He’s gaining more confidence as the days go on.”
After Scott McTominay’s winner gave United a quarter-final tie away at Leicester, Solskjaer praised Diallo’s impact.
The Norwegian told MUTV: “Amad has been bright when he’s come in.
“He’s done really well with the reserves games and he’s a player who can create things out of nothing so he’s there if we need something.”
The winger moved to Italy from the Ivory Coast with his brother Hamed in 2015.
