Louis van Gaal has revealed that Luke Shaw’s recovery from the broken leg is going well, although has noticed that the left-back has been a bit more fed up recently. With the PSV game at Old Trafford on Wednesday, Van Gaal has given Shaw a few days off.

It is going very good with him but it’s also difficult for him because now the progress is not as much as in the beginning. Now, sometimes, he is fed up with the situation and I can imagine that. So I give him now, for example, a few days off because I don’t think the memories of PSV are good for him. I wondered if he was fed up because maybe it was the match against PSV and every player has to watch the game in the stadium to support their fellow players. So I have given him time off but, on Friday, he has a scan and then we will know more about the injury and how it is going.
