Amad, 18, agreed to join United from Atalanta during the summer transfer window, and completed his move in January.
The winger was initially included in United’s Under-23s squad, but was quickly promoted to the first team following some excellent performances.
Amad got his biggest chance yet during Thursday’s Europa League round-of-16 first leg vs Milan at Old Trafford, coming on at half-time in place of Anthony Martial.
The Ivory Coast youngster duly repaid Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s faith with a brillaintly taken goal to put United ahead after a difficult first half.
Amad broke the defensive line to ghost onto a clever Bruno Fernandes through-ball, and proceeded to lob Milan goalkeeper Gianluigi Donnarumma with a header while facing away to goal.
The header was reminiscent of one Javier ‘Chicharito’ Hernandez scored for United against Stoke in 2010 – and a perfect way for Amad to announce himself to Red Devils fans.
