However, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under pressure due to his team’s torrid start to the season.
It is unlikely that Amad will feature against Atalanta at Old Trafford as United bid to leapfrog their opponents at the top of Group F
But the tricky winger has insisted that Gian Piero Gasperini and his men will pose a stern test.
Amad, who joined United in January for £37million, told United’s official club website:
‘First of all, we must not underestimate Atalanta’
‘If you underestimate Atalanta, you are making a huge mistake”
“They have got a great coach, a great team and they have got good fans”
‘They press high, they don’t let you play and they put you in difficulty”
‘The wingers, [Robin] Gosens and [Ruslan] Malinovsky, are strengths of theirs, they will give you a difficult game”
‘Even when they don’t have the ball, they will run a lot, especially those two”
“If you lose the ball, then you’re in trouble because they run so much and they’ll get it.’
