Luke Shaw Slammed By Fans For Having More 'Playing Time On Games Than Minutes For Man United'
Luke Shaw has come under stinging criticism from furious fans for apparently putting in more time on two games than minutes played for Manchester United.
The 24-year-old left-back has been marred with different injuries since he completed his stunning £30m move to Old Trafford in 2014.
But one eagle-eyed Twitter user believes they have found the Xbox account that is linked to Shaw and done some digging into the profile's playing time.
In screenshots posted online, the 'Roasty' Gamertag has put in a whopping 74,800 minutes on Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Remastered from November 2016 to September 2019.
And the account has also logged 18,780 minutes on Epic Games' fan-favourite Fortnite, which was initially released in 2017.
Twitter user Mike then compared the playing time on the two popular titles to Shaw's playing time for United.
According to the fan, the England international has managed to play 9,389 minutes for United in that period.
The Twitter user also accused Shaw of paying other people to play on his behalf so that he could allegedly boost in his standings in competitive leaderboards/tournaments.
Mike backed up his claim that the account belongs to the former Southampton star by showing his Gamertag in a 2013 video with YouTuber Tobiias.
Angry fans have taken to social media and slammed Shaw after the screenshots started to make the rounds online.

Shaw has spent approximately 660 hours playing COD in 3 months.
Thats equal to 28 days of playing COD non-stop.

Shaw, who has made 14 appearances this season, was taken off deep into the second half in United's 2-0 loss to Liverpool last weekend.
Despite the impact of 19-year-old Brandon Williams in the first team, United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is still backing Shaw to reach his full potential at Old Trafford.
"Potentially we have the best left-back in England. Luke has the potential to be the best one," he said.
"And that is the great challenge for him now, Brandon has come in and done so well."
