Amad has broken his silence on social media following Manchester United's disappointing draw against Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.

The 21-year-old winger controversially replaced Alejandro Garnacho at half-time while the Reds trailed 2-1. Bruno Fernandes equalised from 12 yards shortly after the hour mark, doubling his tally for the afternoon.

United have won just one out of their last six Premier League games, dropping to seventh in the table. Erik ten Hag's side are 10 points behind Aston Villa in fourth and Tottenham Hotspur in fifth, with any hope of securing Champions League qualification now a distant memory.

With six games left, the Old Trafford club find themselves in a battle with Newcastle United and West Ham in the race for sixth place. Speaking to reporters after the game on the south coast, red mist descended on Ten Hag when he was warned Manchester United could record their lowest finish in Premier League history this term.

Before leaving, the Dutchman huffed: "I don’t have to comment as it’s not relevant now."

On social media, Amad offered a similar verdict before heaping praise on Bruno Fernandes. The Ivorian posted an image from the Bournemouth game to his Instagram story captioned with the zipped lips emoji, which is commonly used when somebody either has a secret they can't tell or an opinion they don't want to vocalise.

Amad then posted a picture of Fernandes carrying the ball after salvaging an equaliser for the Red Devils. The 21-year-old showed his appreciation and respect for the Portugal international, writing: "Magico Bruno [red heart emoji]."

Back in the Sky Sports studio, Jamie Redknapp slammed Casemiro for his performance at the Vitality Stadium. The former Liverpool midfielder said: "I've watched him for years and he's been one of my favourite defensive midfielders in world football, I've loved watching him play.

"But right now, I watch him, it looks like he's in Soccer Aid. It looks like he’s playing at such a pace where the game is a bit of fun and there's celebrities coming on the pitch. No, this is the Premier League.

"You’ve got so much experience and that isn’t really a case of anything else apart from running. I think to myself, [Manchester City midfielder] Rodri, what would Rodri do in that situation?

"He'd have been flying out there to help his team-mates and that’s what you should be doing. I don't know why. This is my point with Kobbie Mainoo. He’s got everything, got the world at his feet, but you need great role models to get to the top, you need people you are gonna look up to and aspire to be like.

"At the moment, he’s not setting the right examples to the young players around him. I’m a massive fan, but that isn’t good enough. If he’d have sprinted, he would've stopped that."
