Shola Shoretire gets shirt No.74 ahead Sociedad clash

Shola to don shirt No 74


Nigeria born Manchester United midfielder Shola Shoretire has been awarded a senior shirt number.

Shoretire will wear the no.74 shirt, if he makes an appearance in our Europa League match with Real Sociedad.

The Academy forward has been training with the first team recently, and has travelled with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the squad to Turin for the first leg of their last-32 tie against the club from San Sebastian.

Should he make it onto the field at the Allianz Stadium, he will wear the same number that he donned on his UEFA Youth League debut back in 2018.

Shoretire made history in December of that year when Nicky Butt sent him on in the 75th minute of a 2-1 win over Valencia in Spain, becoming the youngest-ever player in the UEFA competition – at just 14 years and 314 days old.
