Manchester United defender Luke Shaw continues to impress – for both club and country.
Credit where it’s due, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has aided Luke Shaw’s revival in a huge way. We’re now talking about one of the best centre-halves in the country – and it’s really come out of nowhere.
Not too long ago, the Englishman just couldn’t keep fit for more than a few games in a row. Couple that with a confidence-issue following *that* horrific double leg-break, and Shaw was seriously struggling to keep his place at Manchester United.
Now, after an injury-free run, Shaw is blossoming. I guess all it took was belief from the manager, some push from Alex Telles and a little bit of luck.
Last night, Shaw would make his England return after three years. He’d put in a performance to be proud of. He’d have 100 total touches, complete 100% of his long passes, end the game with a 92% total pass accuracy, win 3/3 tackles and tack on one assist. It really was a brilliant display from the Man United star. Thanks to the MEN for the stats.
How can you not be happy for Shaw? The immense pride in which he would have undoubtedly felt when pulling on that jersey would have been a surreal feeling. Now, he looks like a dead-cert to start for England during their opening game at the European Championships.
Before then, though, Shaw has to finish the season strong with United. This Reds team is desperate for a trophy and we’re still fighting to win the Europa League title. Our left-back is an integral part of that and we’re going to need him at his brilliant best.
