Luke Shaw and Jose Mourinho hadn’t always enjoyed the best of relationships but the left-back seemed to finally be benefitting from the manager’s tough love approach this season. His performances have been more consistent and he’s started to look like the player we all wanted him to become.
However, Mourinho has now been sacked and replaced with Ole Gunnar Solksjaer, something Shaw only found out about when his girlfriend told him. However, Shaw is impressed with how quickly our new manager has changed things around.
The truth? My girlfriend told me. I woke up in the morning and had a shower and she ran out of the room and told me. I did not have a clue, I didn’t look at my phone or anything. That’s how I found out… from my girlfriend.
I think you can see from the outside how much he has changed things in such a short space of time. He is just a really positive manager, he knows what the club needs and also what the fans want in the way we are playing. He’s bringing that attacking, quick play back to Old Trafford. I’m sure the fans are going to appreciate that as much as we [the players] do.
