Manchester United loanee Amad backed to start delivering by Sunderland boss

Manchester United loanee Amad has been backed to start scoring goals by Sunderland manager Tony Mowbray after an impressive cameo appearance off the bench.

The Black Cats drew 2-2 with Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday afternoon, with Amad – who joined Sunderland on loan for the remainder of the season in the summer – coming off the bench in the 63rd minute.

Amad, who joined United from Atalanta in deal that could reach £37.2m in add-ons, is yet to start for the Championship side, but has come off the bench in the last three matches.

The 20-year-old thought he had recorded his first assist since beginning his loan spell on Saturday, but Jack Clarke, who volleyed home Amad’s cross, was adjudged to have been in an offside position.

After a difficult loan spell with Rangers last season, Amad has looked sharp so far this season – which has led to Black Cats boss Mowbray praising the youngster.

“I thought Amad today showed some real class and quality, as he should because what he cost Manchester United and he’s here on loan,” Mowbray said.

“He showed that he can stand up and really deliver. I’m pretty sure depending on the situation as we move forward it won’t be long before he starts a football match for us and hopefully he gets on the scoresheet and he’s off and running.”

Amad could come up against United teammate Alvaro Fernandez when Sunderland face off against Preston North End in their next Championship match.
