Manchester United fans bemused by Amad decision in Rangers Europa League final loss


Manchester United fans have been left surprised by Giovanni Van Bronckhorst’s decision not to bring on Amad in Rangers’ Europa League final penalty shoot-out defeat to Frankfurt.

The youngster did not play a single minute of his loan club’s journey to the final, and was left on the bench in the final. The striker has not had a seamless time in Scotland, being offered limited game time.

There had been reports that Van Bronckhorst wished to end his loan deal early, but since then Amad has played in his club’s six league matches. But the 19-year-old was overlooked when it came to European nights.

The teenager scored in the competition for United in last season’s Last 16 tie with AC Milan. He was on the bench when United lost to Villarreal on penalties in last year’s final, meaning he’s been a runner-up for two years in a row.

United fans were puzzled why Amad was not given a chance in Wednesday’s final. Some took to Twitter to air their frustrations during the game.

Rangers lost 5-4 on penalties to Bundesliga side Frankfurt after the score was 1-1 after extra time.
