The forward says the youth program is crucial for the club and it is part of their DNA.

Shola Shoretire

made his debut for

Manchester United

in their 3-1 victory over


on Sunday. The 17-year-old came in as a substitute in the 89th minute and became the latest academy product to earn a senior status at Old-Trafford. In a post-match interview,

Marcus Rashford

has praised the club for their attitude toward young players.

"It's in our DNA, it's what we do at Man Utd,"

Rashford told reporters after the match.

"It's important our kids know when they're good enough, [they know] they're old enough.

"Shola has been training with us now for a little while, and has done really well, [this] was the next step up.

"In the last transfer window we let a few players go out on loan, which made the path for him shorter and I'm sure he'll remember his five or six minutes on the pitch tonight."
