According to a piece from the Daily Mail, Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw bought 50 Harrods gift baskets for various staff members across the Carrington training ground, each one costing an estimated £250, prompting supporters to stick up for him against certain sections of fans who don’t see the merit in his gesture.
Is Mason Greenwood the next Robin van Persie?
Still only 24-years-old, Shaw arguably still has a lot to give for United if he can get over past fitness issues and gain a steady run of form in the side.
Regardless of his performances on the pitch, the former Southampton prodigy performed a good deed off it – gifting baskets of goods to various staff members throughout Carrington in the spirit of Christmas.
However, a section of fans still used the news as an opportunity to slate Shaw for his footballing contributions – with a lot of supporters then sticking up for him online amid the criticism.
Here’s what they had to say.
Why are people slating him for buying gifts, and why are people commenting on his ability when that hasnt been mentioned here. He spent 12 grand on gifts, lets appreciate the gesture.

Instead of people slaging him off try and say good things and he is and can be a great player.too much moaning not enough support.

However you ‘fans’ rate his football talent is irrelevant. This is about a gesture to all the backroom staff at the training ground who never get a mention. Well done Luke, great gesture 👍👍👍
