‘It’s in our DNA’: Marcus Rashford congratulates Shola Shoretire on United debut

The 17-year-old came on for Rashford in the latter stage of the Newcastle game.

As a former academy player himself, Marcus knows full well that the club will give the best youngsters every chance.

He’s been impressed with how Shoretire fitted in with the first team in training.

“It’s in our DNA, it’s what we do at Man Utd,” Marcus Rashford said after the Newcastle game about Shola Shoretire’s debut.

“It’s important our kids know when they’re good enough, [they know] they’re old enough.

“Shola has been training with us now for a little while, and has done really well, [this] was the next step up.

“In the last transfer window we let a few players go out on loan, which made the path for him shorter and I’m sure he’ll remember his five or six minutes on the pitch tonight.”

Shoretire has become the 7th-youngest player to make his debut for the Red Devils at the age of 17 years and 19 days.

He has already highlighted Rashford as one of the player he idolised in the academy and one of those who he seeks to emulate in breaking into United’s first team.
