Shola Shoretire given Man Utd chaperone to walk 17-year-old to his car after Premier League debut vs Newcastle

SHOLA SHORETIRE was reportedly chaperoned back to his car after making his Manchester United debut against Newcastle last Sunday.

The 17-year-old came off the bench for his senior bow in the 3-1 win against his hometown club.

The talented teen replaced Marcus Rashford in the 89th minute.

And the Red Devils were extra cautious as they ensured someone accompanied him from the dressing room to the car park at Old Trafford afterwards.

According to ESPN, a member of staff at the club walked with Shoretire to his car as they like to protect their youngsters when making their early steps with the first team.

The report adds he has recently passed his driving test – despite only turning 17 on February 2 and needing to ace his theory exam before booking and taking the practical part.

Shoretire – pronounced 'shore-ea-teery' – used to train with Newcastle around the age of eight and first represented the famed Wallsend Boys Club.

From there he joined Manchester City but was released aged ten after trialling with Barcelona during a family holiday before United snapped him up.

Aged 17 years and 19 days, the prodigy gets into the Premier League's Youngest XI of the season so far alongside team-mate Mason Greenwood, Eric Garcia as well as 16-year-old pair Antwoine Hackford and Dean Scarlett.

He signed his first pro contract days after his birthday earlier this month and is the seventh-youngest United player in history.

And the young forward set another record on Thursday night when he became the youngest player to represent United in Europe.

Boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: "Shola has got some skills, he's going to make a very good player here.

"It's a platform tonight, just 15 minutes but it's something to remember for him at Old Trafford.

"Maybe he would've enjoyed it more with fans because they give you so much energy. But I'm sure all the fans will see him soon."
