Mourinho could show Shaw door


April 04, 2017


One month after JosE Mourinho said Luke Shaw could be Manchester United's best left back, the England international could be looking for a new club.

Mourinho questioned the defender's commitment after again leaving Shaw out of his squad for the 0-0 draw against West Bromwich Albion on Saturday.

"It's difficult for him to be on the bench," the United manager said of the 21-year-old Shaw, who is behind Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo for the left back position. "I cannot compare the way he trains and commits, the focus, the ambition. He is a long way behind."

When Shaw joined United from Southampton in 2014 for reportedly for more than PS27 million ($46 million), Shaw became the world's most expensive teenager.


But his United career has been inconsistent, not helped by being sidelined for nearly a year, while recovering from breaking his right leg in a Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven in September 2015.

Shaw has made only two United appearances in the last four months despite overcoming niggles related to a long lay-off and being fit since mid-January. He has been publicly criticised by Mourinho on several occasions.
