After his much-anticipated injury comeback against Nottingham Forest, Amad is appreciative of his Manchester United teammates’ support.
The 21-year-old participated in our preseason tour of the USA last season and had an incredible loan spell at Sunderland before a knee injury ended his progress.
Amad came off the bench in the second half of last Saturday’s game at The City Ground to make his first appearance for the team since the UEFA Champions League match against Young Boys in December 2021, having worked hard on his recuperation.
Amad expressed his determination in an exclusive interview with club media, stating, “I can come back stronger.” He emphasized returning with increased motivation to contribute to the team’s success, acknowledging the importance of winning every game for a club of United’s stature.
Detailing his recovery routine, Amad outlined his daily schedule of morning treatments and gym workouts, focusing on strengthening his upper body and legs. He credited Lisandro Martinez and Casemiro for their support during his injury, highlighting their leadership qualities.
Amad expressed gratitude to the physios and teammates, noting that he is now back with the team and very happy.
“I spent one month with the physio training individually, and then on December 1st, I rejoined the team for group training,” he reflected. “That’s why returning to team activities after my injury brought me so much joy.”
Amad acknowledged the challenges of being a spectator while sidelined but emphasized his commitment to supporting the team during his absence.
“Yeah, it’s tough at times,” he admitted. “But sometimes it’s okay because you have to stay positive. You need to maintain a positive mindset every day. Recognizing I was injured, I focused on supporting the team and my teammates.
“Everyone deserves to play, but my concentration was on returning swiftly to contribute to the team. It’s challenging to watch the game when you’re not on the field, but staying positive is crucial, hoping for a victory every day.”
