Luke Shaw Claims He'll Be Back In Update After Being Stretchered Off
Luke Shaw has been through a lot already in a short time when it comes to injuries and now he's got to bounce back once again but the Manchester United defender sounds in determined mood.
It's hard not to feel for Luke Shaw. If his broken leg for Manchester United in a Champions League game in 2015 didn't already have you feeling for him then the often harsh treatment he's been served by Jose Mourinho certainly must have done.
Seeing the left back get back to where most people would have expected him to be since August has been one of the few highlights for most Manchester United fans this season so far.
His form earned him a recall to the England squad and he was straight into the starting XI for the Three Lions first post World Cup match, their Nations League opener against Spain.
Shaw helped England take the lead by setting up United teammate Marcus Rashford but his night was cut short when he had to be stretchered off the pitch following an accidental collision with Dani Carvajal.
The FA provided an update last night that he was awake and Shaw followed it up with his own determined update on Twitter:
Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I'm a fighter so I will be back soon! :heart::muscle:- Luke Shaw (@LukeShaw23) September 8, 2018
The 23 year old couldn't get going in his first season at Old Trafford due to several injuries but he started the 2015/16 season playing well for Louis van Gaal before the horrendous leg break against PSV.
In the lead up to the England game the former Southampton player revealed how close he came to losing his leg following the Champions League incident:
He has struggled for form and fitness and has been criticised by Mourinho on several occasions since his comeback from the leg break but this season seems to be back on track.
It's currently unknown how long he'll be out for but he's very unlikely to be involved in England's friendly against Leicester on Tuesday.
