Jose Mourinho has always been a divisive manager, and his tenure in charge of Man Utd has reaffirmed that amongst the Red Devils in the Transfer Tavern…
A manager driven by success, Mourinho has often utilised methods that have come under scrutiny amongst fans – with his treatment of young defender Luke Shaw the latest to draw the ire of the punters in the Tavern.
A talented left-back, Shaw was touted for big things when he made a switch to Man Utd, but since Jose Mourinho arrived – the defender’s development has stalled.
A mix of injury issues, fitness and a lack of trust from Mourinho have all contributed to Shaw’s downfall – with the defender rarely ever a feature in the Premier League for the Red Devils.
Whilst the Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are hopeful that this situation may turn around, it would appear as though Mauricio Pochettino is waiting in the wings hoping that it will not – with Yahoo Sports reporting that Tottenham could look to launch a shock move for the defender.
Pochettino, who of course knows Shaw from his time at Southampton, is reportedly a big fan of Shaw – and if Mourinho can’t find a place for him in the squad – it would appear as though the Argentine will attempt to pounce.
This potential move has delighted the Tottenham fans in the Transfer Tavern, with Luke Shaw undoubtedly one of the most talented players in England. Alongside Tottenham’s own Danny Rose, the pair are arguably the best in the Premier League for their respective position – and the left-hand side of the Tottenham defence could be unstoppable with the defensive duo both offering an option for Pochettino.
At 21-years-old, Luke Shaw is a player that has his best years ahead of him – but he is seriously running out of time if he wants to reach his full potential. He has made just 6 Premier League starts this season – and for a player of his quality, that is just not good enough.
