‘United career is finally over’, Man United fans react to defender’s performance in PL2 game

Luke Shaw received plenty of criticism on social media after he failed to show up in the Manchester United’s 4-2 Premier League 2 defeat to West Ham United on Sunday. The England international returned from a foot injury in mid-September, but Jose Mourinho has since restricted him to a second-half appearance against Burton Albion in the League Cup.

Mourinho has previously urged the left-back to prove his credentials playing for the reserves, and the recent defeat to West Ham United is unlikely to leave a glowing impression. Shaw is currently behind the likes of Ashley Young, Matteo Darmian and Daley Blind for the left-back position, and his situation could get worse in the coming months with Marcos Rojo (knee injury) likely to join the competition for places.

Here are some of the Twitter reactions from the United faithful….




Despite the dull performance at the London Stadium, Shaw has reportedly travelled for Manchester United’s Champions League trip to Benfica, although he is unlikely to get head start for the first XI.

The 22-year-old is currently contracted at Old Trafford until the summer of 2019, and there is a suggestion that he could be offloaded in January, should United get their hands on Tottenham Hotspurs’ Danny Rose.
