Manchester United loanee, Amad Diallo was recently awarded with the EFL’s Young Player of the Month award for December, after ending 2022 on a high note.
While Diallo struggled to find his feet early on in the 2022/23 season, the Ivorian improved as the games rolled on and has now cemented his spot in Sunderland’s starting XI.
In December, the 20-year-old bagged three goals in five games, while putting in a string of eye-catching performances along the way. Speaking to the EFL’s official website, Diallo mentioned that the recognition boosts his confidence.
“Winning this award means a lot to me because I always try to give my best on the pitch,” Amad said.
“This type of recognition gives me great confidence to keep improving, but I also have to thank my team-mates as they help me a lot.”
