Luke Shaw to miss Europa league match

Luke Shaw is set to miss the midweek clash with Feyenoord after picking up a slight hamstring strain against Man City on Saturday.

Jose Mourinho is unlikely to risk Shaw for the opening game of United’s Europa League campaign in Rotterdam on Thursday with Marcos Rojo set to come in.

The game in Holland falls exactly 1 year after Shaw’s horrific leg break which he sustained in a clash with PSV Eindhoven’s Hector Moreno.

Luke Shaw spent 7 months out injured and only returned at the start of this season and recently admitted he feared his career might be over.

“When I did it, the first thought that went through my head was, ‘Am I going to play football again or how long am I going to be out for?

“It wasn’t too much about the pain because I could deal with that.

“But, yeah, there was a fear about how long it was going to take or if I was I was even going to be back playing football.

“But as I went through it (the recovery process) I knew I was coming back and I’m looking past it.”

Shaw was one of United’s best performers last season before his injury and his return has been a welcome sight in the United defence.

His pace and power coupled with his defensive prowess and ability to attack has made Shaw one of the best left backs in England.

Shaw will surely look to build on his positive return from injury and push for the starting left back spot in the England squad this season.
