One Manchester United Player Is Getting Ripped Apart After Wigan Performance
Luke Shaw was granted a rare start for Manchester United this afternoon in the FA Cup, but it appears the left-back's efforts haven't really gone down well with the club's supporters.
The 21-year-old was signed from Southampton in the summer of 2014, but a double leg break in September 2015 meant he missed almost all of last season, and it seems the England international is still struggling to find his top form.
Having been left out of recent matches against Reading, Hull City and Liverpool, Shaw was given a start in the fourth round of the competition at home to Championship side Wigan Athletic, but a pretty damning consensus had started forming amongst supporters:
Luke Shaw looks scared to express himself. I hope for his sake he can regain that extra yard of pace that made United spend big bucks on him- James (@Magic_No7) January 29, 2017
Luke Shaw looks like he's playing in a youth soccer league! Pretty sure I've seen kids playing in parks able pass better than that!!! - :sunglasses:- Passion Forever (@passion4ever89) January 29, 2017

Luke Shaw looks desperately poor - no confidence at all - looks a shadow of the player that we purchased #mufc- Dipak (@dipaksiyani) January 29, 2017

If Luke Shaw wasn't English he'd be nowhere near this team.- Reece Dunne (@reecedunne) January 29, 2017
What has happened to Luke Shaw, has the leg break had an effect on his confidence or is it Jose?- Bryan Peddie (@peddy10) January 29, 2017
On top of his horrific broken leg, this is actually Shaw's first appearance in the senior side since November - surely fans should be a bit more realistic and reasonable than giving him this sort of reaction, no?
