Amad Diallo: Cote d’Ivoire coach Patrice Bomel looks forward to loan for young Manchester United footballer

Manchester United player Amad Diallo was part of the Ivory Coast team at the recent Olympic Games in Tokyo.

With less than five months delayed until the African Cup of Nations, Cote d’Ivoire coach Patrice Bomel said he would be delighted if Amad Diallo is loaned to Manchester United.

Several clubs have been linked to the loan of the young Ivorian, including championship club Sheffield United, which were relegated to the relegation at the end of last season.

Frenchman Bomel believes that such a move will help not only Côte d’Ivoire, as he prepares for the final in Cameroon, but also the player himself.

“We are four or five months ahead of Afkon and I would like him to play more games,” Bomel told BBC Sport Africa.

“When you have a talent like Amad Diallo, he needs to show it and improve his game.

“I think if he doesn’t play too much for Manchester United right now, it’s better to go on loan to show that he deserves to be in the squad or to play more for Manchester United.

Amad Diallo celebrates
Côte d’Ivoire player Amad Diallo completed his transfer to Manchester United from Atalanta in January.

Diallo returned to training with Manchester United, having played in all four of Côte d’Ivoire’s games at the Tokyo Olympics, where they lost in extra time to the silver medalists of Spain in the quarterfinals.

The coach added that he is in constant contact with all of his players, including United team-mate Eric Bailly and Tottenham Hotspur player Serge Aurier, who were on and off their squad’s starting lineups last season.

“Of course I would like them to play more games, but playing at Manchester United is not easy,” he explained.

“Like other players, like Serge Aurier at Tottenham, etc. But I call them every week.

“Playing for the country and wearing an orange jersey brings a lot of joy and happiness to them, and this is very important. So I’m sure they will do their job. “

French coach Patrice Bomel
French coach from Ivory Coast Patrice Bomel worked as an assistant to Hervé Renard for most of his career.

Bomel, who was an assistant to Hervé Renard when he won the Nations Cup with Zambia (2012) and Ivory Coast (2015), admitted that the current Covid-19 pandemic has made his job much more difficult.

“With Covid, it’s very difficult (to see the players in action), but I’m used to calling them,” he said.

“Thank goodness we have a TV, so we can watch a lot of games from all over the world. And as soon as possible I will go to see the boys.

“I need to meet to talk to them. Everyone can show their skills if they are doing well in the club. “

Before the Nations Cup final, the Elephants will play six World Cup 2022 qualifying matches, starting in the first week of September against Mozambique and then Cameroon.

There will be a match against Malawi in November, and only one of the four teams that qualify for the group stage will advance to the final playoffs of the FIFA World Cup in Africa.

Côte d’Ivoire will face reigning champions Algeria, Equatorial Guinea and Sierra Leone in Group E of the Nations Cup in Cameroon in January.
