Jose Mourinho has a curious knack of saying one thing and doing another and that’s exactly what happened last weekend in Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Burnley.
After a rare run in the starting XI, the Portuguese was quick to publicly praise Luke Shaw as one of the world’s best left-backs, but the England international found himself benched at Turf Moor with Ashley Young returning from suspension to take his place at No.3.
With that in mind, we recently asked Red Devils supporters who should be United’s first-choice left-back and it appears the majority disagree with Mourinho on this issue as Shaw – who Transfermarkt value at £13.5million – took a whopping 72% of the votes in Football FanCast’s exclusive poll.
The 22-year-old’s omission from the starting XI last weekend will almost certainly sustain doubts over whether he’ll still be a United player next season. So, Red Devils fans, do you see a long-term future for Shaw at Old Trafford? Let us know by commenting below…
