Ahead of Manchester United’s game against Bournemouth, Jose Mourinho has given an update on Luke Shaw, who has been out of favour with our new manager.
Mourinho has confirmed that Shaw will be in the squad for Saturday’s game, so has told the press they don’t need to show up at the team hotel looking to take pictures of the squad and comment on Shaw’s absence.
I have good news for you. He is selected for tomorrow so you don’t need to have the guys at The Lowry to take pictures of who is selected and makes the list because Luke is on the list for tomorrow.
Again, it is one step up from not being selected, from not being in the final, from not even being on the bench. Now, like Wayne, he’s selected so he is playing or being on the bench. He becomes an option to us again.
Luke is working hard trying to improve. He has improved by the physical point of view, that I can say for sure with good dedication, good specific work and, now obviously he needs some opportunities to feel alive to play some minutes on the pitch. He needs to show on the pitch the evolution is not just by the physical point of view but globally, because a player is globality, not just physical condition.
