Record Breaker: Nigeria’s 14-year-Old Starlet Becomes The Youngest UEFA Youth League Player

from: 17 . 12 . 18
The Reds’ latest academy gem has set a new UEFA Youth League mark in the clash against Valencia

Manchester United have been known over the years to churn out academy graduates through the ranks to the first team.

However, the stock of their academy has risen higher after Shola came off the bench to make an appearance for Nicky Butts side in their UEFA Youth League clash against Valencia.

Manchester United starlet Shola Shoretire has set a new record as the youngest player to see action in the UEFA Youth League.
The forward tweeted: “2-1 win to finish the group unbeaten. Great result! Also a massive shout out to all the debutants and 14 yr old Shola making his debut.”

The winger, just 14 years, 10 months and 10 days old, made his debut in the 2-1 win over Valencia – and is also believed to be the youngest player the Reds have fielded in an official youth team league or cup match.

He beat the previous UEFA Youth League mark of Benfica goalkeeper Mile Svilar, who in turn succeeded Real Madrid Iker Casillas as the youngest to appear in the Champions League.

The youngster, who is eligible to play for Nigeria but has caught the eye of England youth team selectors, got a pat on the back from team-mate Angel Gomes, who has already made his senior United debut.
