Chelsea and Ivory Coast legend Didier Drogba has heaped praise on Manchester United starlet Amad Diallo after his Golden Boy nominations.
Diallo made the 80-man shortlist for the award with the player currently preparing to represent Ivory Coast in this summer's Olympic Games.
Taking to his Instagram story, Drogba wrote: "Proud of you @amaddiallo19. You're not only representing our country but the continent."
Diallo is one of the most promising players in world football currently with United roping him from Serie A side Atalanta last summer; even though he arrived in January this year after they allowed him to develop further in his club.
While he has been used in the club's U23 games, Diallo has always impressed in the came roles he's managed with United's first team and scored a brilliant header in the club's 1-1 draw against AC Milan at Old Trafford on their way to last year's UEFA Europa League finals.
