SUNDERLAND loan star Amad Diallo has asked fans at the Stadium of Light to change their chant about his manhood as it is “disrespectful”.
The 20-year-old Manchester United youngster has started to thrive in the North East and is becoming a fan favourite.
But according to talkSPORT reports, a segment of Black Cats supporters ignored his plea against Millwall on Saturday.
At the start of the game, the chant – which includes a line about the size of his manhood – could be heard from the stands.
Diallo had previously said: “Sunderland fans I’ve had a great time so far and I love your energy.
“Hearing you sing my name is amazing, but we have to be respectful.
“Let’s change the song and keep the noise.”
Sunderland hammered the south London club 3-0 into the top half of the Championship.
Fans were happy with the win but had mixed feelings about the song.
One fan tweeted: “Pre-match: Sunderland urge fans to stop singing Amad Diallo chant. 20 seconds later: It’s singing.”
