Jose Mourinho has already enforced some pretty drastic changes on the Manchester United squad, as he looks to cement his ideas and tactics as quickly as possible. One man who hasn’t really adapted to life under the Portuguese coach is Luke Shaw.

The talented left-back, who came to United with a huge reputation and a pretty hefty price tag under Louis van Gaal, has barely featured for Jose Mourinho.

Now, the Daily Mail say that the former Southampton man has no intention of leaving Manchester United, and will fight for his place at the Theatre of Dreams.

This is the absolute perfect attitude to have despite falling out with Jose Mourinho earlier on in the month. He has to keep working hard, because, in my opinion, he’s the most talented left-back we currently have at our disposal. I find it criminal that Matteo Darmian is seemingly first-choice in that area of the field right now, despite him being predominantly a right-sided player.

Let’s not forget that Luke Shaw was out of action for around nine months with that horrific double leg break that he suffered last season, so his confidence may still be quite low from that – and it will take time for him to get back fully fit and firing. As fans, we have to stay behind Luke Shaw, and give him our backing.
