Shaw to be offered counselling during his recovery from a broken leg…


Luke Shaw will be offered the assistance of a psychologist during his recovery from a double leg fracture.

The Manchester United defender was enjoying a flying start to the season before his tragic injury, and the club hope that addressing the mental impact of the incident will help him return to the highest level.

“Part of the recovery process will involve the player dealing with his mental demons and the bad memories of what happened to him that night,” a United source told the Daily Star.

“A psychologist will be made available to him if needed, to talk him through it all and help his chances of being mentally ready to return to the game.”

Shaw could miss the rest of the season, putting his hopes of playing at Euro 2016 in doubt.
