Luke Shaw thanks fans after return from horror injury

Good to be back


Luke Shaw played 45 minutes of Manchester United’s preseason friendly against Wigan Athletic on Saturday.

No matter what team you support, you have to admit that’s a great sight considering it was the youngster’s first run out since suffering that horrific double leg break against PSV Eindhoven in September.

Shaw has spent most of the last 10 months in recovery, putting in the hard hours in physical therapy to try to get back to full fitness and return to the United team.

He came one step closer to returning to normality by starting for the Red Devils for Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge against Wigan.

Goals from Will Keane and Andreas Pereira secured a 2-0 win for United, in what was a particularly emotional match for Shaw. He admitted to being blown away by the loyal travelling support in the DW stadium who gave him a one hell of a reception on his return. Snapchat
