Luke Shaw's Bizarre Man United Pre-Match Routine Caught On 'Camera For First Time' Ahead Of Roma Clash

Luke Shaw's eye-catching pre-match routine was captured on camera 'for the first time' ahead of Manchester United's Europa League match with Roma.

The Red Devils were defeated 3-2 by the Italian side in the second-leg semi-final clash at the Stadio Olimpico last week.

Despite the defeat at the Stadio Olimpico, one eagle-eyed United fan account managed to spot Shaw warming up for the match in an unusual way.

As the United players made their way out onto the pitch, Shaw could be seen throwing his water bottle away before bursting into a strange hopping sequence.

Responding to the tweet, Shaw said: "I always do it [sic] maybe first time camera has caught me."

The 28-year-old United skipper said: "It's a great achievement. Obviously, we didn't win the game tonight, so that is disappointing, but we did the hard work in the first leg and we put ourselves in a great position.

"We knew tonight that we needed to start the first half well and we started the game a bit edgy. They actually played a man-to-man pressing style.

"It made the game end to end like basketball. We got a good result at half-time, but the second half we gave them too many chances, to be honest. We need to improve for the final, but it's a great achievement.

"Obviously, we don't want to lose any football match. We came into it tonight wanting to win the game.

"We put ourselves in a great position in the first leg and credit to the boys, we obviously won't celebrate tonight but we will congratulate ourselves for overcoming the semi-final stage and making it to the final of a competition that we have to go and win."
