Ex-Sunderland loanee Amad’s 43-word statement following his social media deactivation in response to Man United rumors

Amad Diallo has provided an explanation for the recent activity on his social media platforms.

After deleting all Manchester United-related photos from his Instagram and X accounts, the former Sunderland loanee stirred controversy on social media amid reports of intense negotiations between Erik ten Hag and himself.

The former Sunderland loanee was the subject of transfer rumors in January as there had been talk of a possible loan transfer during the winter transfer window.

In order to give the attacking midfielder additional first-team playing time, Manchester United decided to retain Amad at Old Trafford under Erik ten Hag. The Ivorian player is reportedly getting frustrated since he has only played 27 minutes since January.

That being said, Amad has disclosed that he made those adjustments in advance of Ramadan on his social media. Muslims around the world mark Ramadan, the ninth month in the Islamic calendar, as a time of fasting.

“I turned off all social media for a month in order to dedicate myself to Ramadan.” Amad said on social media, “Stop the hate, there’s nothing wrong with what I did,” and then deleted his accounts. “It’s my holy month, and on social media, I might see awful things when I’m fasting.”

Last season, Amad had a successful loan stay in the Championship with Sunderland, helping Tony Mowbray’s team reach the play-offs. The player’s knee injury made things more difficult for the Black Cats last summer, despite their desire for him to return.

When they were on Wearside together, Mowbray and Amad had a good friendship. But, after being fired, the former is now Birmingham City’s manager while receiving treatment for a medical condition.

Amad was reportedly interested in by the Black Cats, Leeds United, Middlesbrough, and Leicester City in January after he recovered from his injury from last summer. Nevertheless, United retained Amad following their alleged £19 million—which increased to £37 million in 2020—payment to Atalanta of Italy for the midfielder.

This coming Saturday at the Stadium of Light in the Championship, Sunderland will play Queens Park Rangers, and Mike Dodds’ team will be hoping to avoid a seventh straight defeat.
