'I've been close': Man Utd Shoretire loan man hoping to score his first senior goal

Manchester United owned winger Shola Shoretire will be hoping to score his first senior goal for Bolton Wanderers.

Premier League 2 football was becoming too easy for the England youth international of Nigerian descent, so he was loaned out to Bolton Wanderers for the remainder of the season in the winter transfer window.

Shoretire has endeared himself to the Bolton Wanderers faithful with his outstanding performances, but has failed to find the net in seven league games, six of which he started.

The highlight of his performance since moving to the Trotters on loan came against Peterborough United at Weston Homes Stadium, where he inspired the visitors to a 5–0 win on 11 February.

The 19-year-old won two penalties converted by Dion Charles in the 42nd and 51st minute.

Although Shoretire aims to get on the score sheet, they have emphasized that winning as a team is more important than personal glory.

Speaking to Bolton Wanderers’ official website, Shoretire declared: “I’ve been close (to scoring)! The two penalties I won in Peterborough, Dion took as top scorer and for the hat-trick, so I was happy . for him.

“There are a lot of games left. The main focus is to win, but a goal would be brilliant.”

“That’s a big part of my game as well, not just scoring, but creating chances and trying to get assists and help the team win because that’s the position we’re in right now. We need to keep winning.”

“Whether it’s me scoring the goals, or someone else, as long as we win, that’s the main focus.”

Shoretire scored five goals in nine PL2 games for Manchester United’s development team before going on loan to Bolton Wanderers.
