Amad has spent the entire season on loan at The Stadium of Light, where he has been crucial to their attempt to reach the postseason.
The young guy has had a fantastic season under his guidance, and The Red Devil’s Mowbray was effusive in his appreciation for him, according to The Northern Echo.
“He’s just a superb footballer who chooses the perfect pass, makes the right judgments, and gets the weight of the ball right,” Mowbray said of Amad. “Amad is a fantastic artist.
Amad was called up to the Ivory Coast team as a result of his performance, and Mowbray acknowledges it took him some time to recover.
After the international break, “we know it took him a week or so to come back up to speed,” he said.
The Sunderland boss is aware of how important Amad will be to The Black Cats’ chances of making the playoffs.
With only six games left in the league, Mowbray’s club is presently six points out of the playoffs.
Amad has shone for Sunderland’s Championship team this season, scoring 10 goals for them, with his most recent goal coming in Friday’s thrilling 4-4 tie with Hull.
Amad’s efforts on Wearside are sure to have impressed Erik ten Hag, and the 20-year-old is keen to begin his United career.
It didn’t go quite as planned for the Ivorian to leave Atlanta in January 2021, with just nine times for the club.
Amad scored for United against AC Milan in the Europa League, and the winger intends to carry over his stellar play for Sunderland to Old Trafford for the upcoming season and beyond.
