Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho appeared to aim a sly dig at left-back Luke Shaw following his side’s 1-1 draw against Swansea City at Old Trafford on Sunday.
Mourinho: "Luke Shaw must be a big injury, because to leave the pitch after 10 mins I am expecting a very big injury." #MUFC

The England international was given a rare start for the visit of the relegation-battling Swans after a number of public fall-outs with Mourinho this season, but he left the pitch in the ninth minute after going down with an injury.
In his post-match comments the Portuguese boss suggested that Shaw must have a “very big injury” to be taken off that early on, and hinted that it might not have been as serious as it looked.
United supporters were quick to have their say on Mourinho’s comments via social media, and they agreed with the 54-year-old and believe that Shaw doesn’t have the right qualities to be a Red Devils player in the future.
Here is just a selection of the Twitter reaction…
Reading between the lines Mourinho not happy again with Luke Shaw. Also Jones and Smalling. All 3 future must be in serious threat

So Luke Shaw has basically limped his way out of any chance of ever playing for United again it seems. I'm totally fine with that ???????? #mufc ????

I'm all done with Luke Shaw – I don't ever want to see him in a United kit again. Guy doesn't have it, made of glass. #MUFC

Looks like Jose is annoyed with Shaw and Rooney looked annoyed on the pitch after talking to Shaw as well. Don't think he's our guy #mufc
