‘Should be starting’ – Man United fans can’t believe Mourinho snubbed £13.5m-rated star

In the Transfer Tavern last night, Manchester United fans were left confused as Luke Shaw wasn’t even named on the bench for the club’s 0-0 draw at the Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan. The left-back who signed for United for big money from Southampton back in 2014 has failed to hold down a first-team place recently, despite his recent impressive form.

Shaw has shown United fans what they’ve been missing recently as the club have kept clean sheets in seven of the ten games in which the 22-year-old has played the full 90 minutes so far this season. However, Mourinho has opted to play the veteran winger-turned-defender Ashley Young for the bulk of the campaign so far, much to the annoyance of many supporters.

The decision to leave the marauding full-back out of the squad yesterday didn’t sit right with fans however as recent performances against Huddersfield twice and Yeovil made fans believe Shaw warranted a place in the starting eleven during the Red Devils’ crucial Champions League fixture.

Shaw (rated at £13.5m on Transfermarkt) will hope he can continue to impress in a bid to regain his place in what has been a shaky United back line over the last few weeks. However, with big games ahead in the Premier League against Chelsea and Liverpool before the return of Sevilla, chances are there for him to cement himself a place in the first team.

With that in mind, here’s a look at the reaction online.
