-Luke Shaw has had a very injury riddled and controversial career at Manchester United. He did have a period where he settled in at the first team left back position, but those days are long gone now. Shaw got a rare first team chance last night, and this was his first action with the senior team in four months.
How did Luke Shaw do? Well, United club legend Phil Neville was far from impressed. The iconic member of the Class of ’92 delivered this stinging criticism of the young Englishman.

‘When I see someone that’s been criticised by his manager publicly and he’s probably fighting for his Man United future, come on in a game like this against Burton, you’re 3-0 up, there’s nothing to lose and you’ve just come back from a long injury, you absolutely sprint everywhere,’ Neville told Sky Sports. (transcript Metro)

‘And I didn’t see that real hunger to sprint to every ball, to sprint forward, to sprint back, I saw someone that’s coasting.”

‘He needs to come out of that comfort zone of coasting because if he wants to be a Man United left-back he needs to play at the level of a Ander Herrera.

‘He (Herrera) got his chance tonight and he flew into every tackle and went into every ball and Shaw needs to get up to his intensity every minute of every game he plays for this football club. At the moment he’s not. He looked a long way off.

‘I know he’s been out injured but we’re waiting for the real Luke Shaw. I think he’s good enough to play here but I need to see more from him.’


Wow! Scathing!
