He has remained close to the Reds since his retirement, working regularly in the MUTV studio, and his daughter Hayley was also a very popular presenter with the official channel from 2006 to 2010 before joining Sky Sports.

A statement was released by the 68-year-old’s family on Tuesday, explaining the situation. full story 

Amad Diallo’s ‘unbelievable feet’ excite Man Utd team-mate as James talks up teenager’s potential

The Red Devils winger faces added competition for places from an exciting youngster, but a hot prospect has been welcomed into the fold

Daniel James is among those to be getting excited about Amad Diallo at Manchester United, with the Welsh winger admitting that a direct rival for regular game time has got “unbelievable feet”.

The Red Devils invested in the potential of the 18-year-old Amad during the summer of 2020 and welcomed him onto their books during the January transfer window.

Amad has been catching the eye at Under-23 level, allowing him to make his senior debut in a Europa League clash with Real Sociedad, and big things are expected at Old Trafford.

James told United Review of the impact made by the highly-rated Ivorian: “Amad has come in and, as a young lad, he’s been unbelievable in training.

“I mean his professionalism [is very good] and he’s settled in straight away, I’d say, do you know what I mean?

“We see his quality in training, he has unbelievable feet, but we’ve seen he also presses well and wins the ball back, which is exactly what we want.”

When did Amad make his debut?

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer handed the youngster seven minutes off the bench in United’s 4-0 win over Sociedad on February 18.
