Man United defender Shaw reveals that he has never felt better

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has claimed that he has ‘never felt better’ following his recent run of matches for the Red Devils.

Shaw, 22, looked to be heading out of Old Trafford after struggling for football in the early weeks of the 2017-18 campaign.

The England international has worked his way back into the picture in recent weeks, however, to start United’s last three Premier League matches.

The defender, who is valued at £13.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, was still said to be dealing with the effects of the horrific double leg fracture that he suffered whilst playing in the Champions League towards the end of 2015.

However, Shaw has revealed that he is currently in a very good place both physically and mentally as he looks to nail-down the left-back spot for United.

Shaw told United Review:

“A bad injury like I had always stays with you a little bit afterwards but it’s in the past and I feel really good and really fit, and my leg feels perfect.

“Body-wise and fitness-wise I probably feel the best I’ve ever felt. Mentally I feel very strong as well and I’m enjoying my football, and it’s now about pushing on and helping the team.”

Ashley Young’s recent suspension and Antonio Valencia’s hamstring injury has seen Shaw enjoy a lot of football for United over the last few weeks.

Meanwhile, the left-back is still said to have an outside chance of making the England squad for the 2018 World Cup.
