The Manchester United forward is regaining his full fitness after sustaining a serious injury in preseason.
Amad has stated he is recovering from a knee ailment he sustained in the preseason while working his way back up to full fitness.
After being dragged off during Manchester United’s victory against Arsenal in a friendly, the attacker was spotted walking with crutches at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey.
Although the team stated that it is a knee ailment that has kept him out of the first half of the season, he was observed gripping his ankle when he was injured. Amad had a promising preseason after a stellar year at Sunderland on loan.
In 42 games, the Ivorian scored 14 goals and provided four assists to help the Black Cats get to the Championship play-off semifinals.

Shortly after his setback, Amad said on Instagram that he had “feared the worst” but that the problem was “nothing serious” and that he would bounce back stronger. A new update has been given by the 21-year-old as he continues his recovery.
Amad posted on Instagram once more, this time sharing a picture of himself in a mirror dressed in United training gear and a smaller image of his knee. Step by step was the caption he used.
Although Amad hasn’t played for his parent club since the following December, he has played nine senior competitive games for United and scored against AC Milan in the Europa League back in March 2021.
His performance for Sunderland last season was so outstanding that manager Tony Mowbray pleaded with United not to bring him back due to the team’s striker shortage.
As Antony struggles to live up to his £85 million price tag on the wing, Amad will be hoping to be given the chance to prove his talent and secure his position in the first squad once he returns to full health.
