Bolton Wanderers boss Ian Evett has praised the impact Shola Shoretire has had on his debut after joining the club on loan until the end of the season.
Shoretire completed just over 70 minutes in his first appearance for The Trotters, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
The 18-year-old impressed his new manager last night as he contributed to Bolton’s 1-0 win over Forest Green.
“It’s a complete debut that he remembers. I have to say that in the first 20 to 25 minutes, some of the things he did were electric. He turned with the ball. Way, some passes, some dribbles,” Evatt said after the game.
It wasn’t just Shoretire’s ability on the ball that impressed Evatt, the Bolton boss praised him for his work when his team had no possessions.
“But what made us even happier was the way he bought something we didn’t own. He patiently waited for us to press the trigger. I’m proud of him,” he said.
Evat had no doubt Shoretire would prove to be a great addition to his group and help drive promotion for the club.
“You see what he brings to us. We don’t have a player like that yet, and he’s going to be a really, really good player for us,” he said. rice field.
It’s not the first time Evat has praised Shoretire as a ‘360-degree player’ after making a cameo appearance against Derby County over the weekend.
Bolton are currently well-positioned in League One and are well on their way up the playoffs, but are 11 points behind Sheffield Wednesday, who share the automatic promotion quota with Plymouth.
If Shoretire can help lead The Trotters to a championship, he will definitely catch the eye of Eric Ten Hag.
United’s manager currently has fewer options for a centre-forward, and Shoretire hopes to push his way into the Dutchman’s plans in the coming years.
Shoretyre made five first-team appearances for United and holds the record for being the youngest player to play for the club in European competition.
