Shola Shoretire has sent a message to the fans after making his full Man United debut.
Remember the name, Shola Shoretire. Manchester United Football Club would give the mega-talented youngster his opportunity last night, as the Red Devils would beat Newcastle United 3-1.
So it was only a few minute cameo for Shoretire, but it’s a moment that will live with him forever. The talented-teen managed to get a few touches of the ball, too.
For me, what’s most important is building up that confidence. It shows Ole Gunnar Solskjaer trusts the young man and that’s a huge morale-booster for Shoretire.
Shortly after full-time, Shoretire would take to Twitter to send a message to the fans. He’d write that dreams really do come true.
Check out Shola Shoretire’s tweet here:
For Shoretire, it’s now about continuing to work hard on the training ground. If the attacker can continue to impress his manager, his minutes will slowly but surely start to increase.
The good news is that he’s now training with the first-team on a regular basis which will only help him improve.
I would imagine the view is to work Shoretire similarly to Mason Greenwood. Dripfeed him minutes this term, before making him a permanent member of the squad over the next twelve months.
Solskjaer has already stated that Shoretire won’t start against Real Sociedad on Thursday night which is somewhat of a shame, but you do understand the logic behind it.
Congratulations on your debut, Shola! Hopefully, this is the first of many performances for you in that famous red shirt.
