Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has handed England boss Roy Hodgson a major blow as he prepares to name his England squad for Euro 2016, by claiming that defender Luke Shaw is unlikely to play before the end of the season.
The England supporting faithful who are regularly found supping in the Transfer Tavern had hoped to see Shaw back in the pitch towards the end of the season, to hand the Three Lions a boost ahead of the summer tournament.
The Dutch manager spoke to The Times has pretty much ruled Shaw out for the remainder of the season, following the ex-Southampton man’s horrific double leg break, which he suffered back in October.
One United fan is sat waiting for the Saturday night karaoke to start here in the Tavern and he believes that this news isn’t just a blow for England, but for United who had hoped that Shaw would give them a much needed lift towards the end of the season.
England fans, would Shaw have made your squad had he been fit? Who will fill the void for England?
