Shola Shoretire has a bright future and will play in front of Man Utd fans, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after becoming her youngest player in European competition

Solskjaer brought Shoretire to a 4-0 aggregate win in the second half of United’s 0-0 draw against Real Sociedad on Thursday Mason Greenwood (17y 156d) and Gary Neville (17y 211d)

The United boss says Shoretire has his feet on the ground and a bright future ahead of him He predicts he’ll have more playing time when the fans finally return to Old Trafford

“He’s a little kid that we believe in,” said Solskjaer. “He’s got a great attitude, he’s an athlete, he’s very, very good technically and makes good decisions. We want to gradually feed him into this team. He has his Feet firmly on the ground, hopefully we’ll see a lot of this in the future “

He also told BT Sport: “He has some skills and qualities that we think will make a very good player here”It’s a platform, of course, tonight, just 15 minutes. It’s something to build on, something to remember at Old Trafford

“On the other hand, he would have enjoyed the fans more because they give you so much more energy at the moment than football. It’s strange, it’s different, but I’m sure all the fans will see him later”

When asked if the memory of three semi-final defeats last season and one more this season will cheer his players this time, Manchester United boss Solskjaer told BT Sport: “Yes, of course you remember the defeats more than to the victories and especially to the semi-finals

“You’re so close to the final and the big stage and we’ve had three of them – we’ve already had one this season – so of course this group feels injured and they want to go further

“We failed in three semi-finals, we want to do better and improve, the culture is really improving

“Until the international break we have seven games, Chelsea, Leicester, City, and West Ham as well Who knows who we’re pulling so these three and a half weeks are going to be huge for us”But we’re in a good place, the confidence is good, hopefully we’ll get some players back”

With some fascinating opponents waiting for the final 16 – including Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s former club Molde or one of three other British teams at Tottenham, Rangers and Arsenal – all eyes are on the Friday lunchtime draw

Solskjaer wants to face his previous team, which Hoffenheim defeated 5: 3 overall to reach the last 16

“Of course I would love to meet Molde. I spoke to Erling [Moe manager] this morning and they have had a lot of injuries, some illnesses, which part of the season they are in, that has to be the performance of the lap to get through against Hoffenheim Absolutely exceptional

“I’m so proud of Erling and the boys. When we play them, we know it will be difficult. Unfortunately, if we draw them, it won’t be in Norway From a sporting point of view, I’d rather take someone else”

As if it hadn’t been said enough, fitness and fatigue will continue to play a big role as the season progresses

When Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team was selected on Thursday evening, a few eyebrows were raised for a draw Manchester United were in complete control of the tie – “We’re 4-0” was a trend on Twitter before kick-off – when United made just four changes to the side that beat Newcastle in the Premier League, including a start for star Bruno Fernandes

But Solskjaer took full advantage of the five-subs rule in Europe, including three at halftime, as United showed that the depth of their squad goes beyond registered Premier League players

Shola Shoretire became her youngest player in European competition 23 days ago at the age of 23, while Amad Diallo (18) made his debut at Old Trafford

In fact, five of the ten outfielders who finished the game were academics as United’s proud tradition of youth enforcement continues. Interestingly, Marcus Rashford, one of those graduates, was the first Premier League player to play in this one Season 40 played in all competitions, which shows the need for rotation

Solskjaer will continue to take this competition seriously after three “hurtful” semi-finals defeats in just eight months, but the opportunity to prioritize each other shows no sign of showing up anytime soon

United’s next seven games over three and a half weeks before the international break – including Premier League games against Chelsea, Man City and West Ham and the last 16 Europa League and Leicester bipeds in the FA Cup eight – could define their season in Gerard Brand

The draw will take place on Friday the 26th February, at 1212:00 AM UK time at 12:00 AM00:00 UK time will be held at the Nyon House of European Football. You can follow it on the Sky Sports platforms
