January signing Amad has been named in a match day squad for the first time since his move from Atalanta in Tuesday night’s Cup triumph.
The Ivorian could not come off the bench when Scott McTominay struck in extra time to book United’s place in the FA Cup quarter-finals.
However, Amad was still over the moon for his new teammates, as he posted on Twitter to give those involved a pat on the back.
He simply wrote: “Well done guys” next to a picture of him smiling during warm-ups at Old Trafford.
“Part of the end, he went a little sideways, blowing the ball into the net!”Solskjaer said after the victory.
“We have to learn from him (McTominay). We need to be more clinical and finish the game earlier.
“Scott was a striker and I think he finishes with authority. You see that he does not mind being in these positions. He just hit the ball into the net.”
United are now in the hat for Thursday’s quarter-final draw, and Solskjaer admits that while a home draw would make life easier for him, he is aiming for a place in the final regardless of the draw.
“It doesn’t matter at the moment with the fans,” the Norwegian added about the draw. “With the trip, of course, it’s easier to be here at Old Trafford, so yes, please.

“Of course, you want to win every game. We want to challenge and we want to go to the final. That’s why we’re here at Manchester United.
“Sometimes you are lucky with the Cup draws, we did not have that opportunity, but obviously we are even closer to the final.
“We have a few days to prepare. We don’t play until Sunday. These 120 minutes will allow us to be ready for Sunday.“
