Premier League legend Ian Wright has hailed Luke Shaw for his performances for Manchester United this season.
The England international established himself as a promising young prospect at Southampton.
After being included in the PFA Team of the Year for 2013/14, Shaw was bought by United.
However, injuries initially hampered his spell at the club, especially under Jose Mourinho who was publicly critical of him at times.
The 25-year-old has also had a few injury setbacks under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he has been in fine form for United this term.
In 27 appearances across all competitions, Shaw has provided five assists. He has been solid both defensively and offensively, keeping summer-signing Alex Telles on the bench.
Wright praised Shaw’s performances this season while also criticising Mourinho for his handling of the left-back.
As quoted by the Daily Mail, the former Arsenal striker told the BBC: “Luke Shaw when he came to United from Southampton as a fantastic player, but he fell away a bit.
“He had injuries and lost form, but he has turned it around. He is fitter, stronger and is showing what he is capable of. Some of the treatment he got from Jose Mourinho was degrading – I didn’t like to see it.”
Shaw has undoubtedly been one of the best left-backs in the Premier League this season and his resurgence means United, with Telles on the books, no longer need to worry about their left flank.
Instead United have now switched their focus to their right-back position, where the club is open to selling Diogo Dalot and may potentially bring in Norwich right-back Max Aarons, who has been linked with United in the last year or so.
