Sunderland Sporting Director Kristjaan Speakman spoke highly of Amad Diallo’s progress with the Black Cats during the 2022/23 campaign as his loan spell comes to an end.

In search of game time, Manchester United loaned Diallo to Sunderland for the 22/23 season as the African star enjoyed an upward trajectory in his development with the club.

En-route to helping Sunderland reach the Championship play-offs, Amad scored 14 goals in 42 games across the board as Speakman spoke fondly of the Ivorian’s progress.

“We’re really proud that we have managed to help his career, too,” Speakman told Sunderland’s YouTube channel, as per Manchester Evening News.

“He came here off the back of the loan move to Glasgow [Rangers] and he himself would say he probably arrived with lower confidence that he is used to.

“so to be able to build that player back up hopefully bodes well for him, but it also bodes well for us when we are trying to recruit either on loan or with permanent transfers that this is a really good place to come for players, regardless of age.”
