Southampton fans have slammed Luke Shaw after he took to social media following Manchester United’s 9-0 victory over the Saints.
For the second time in 16 months, Southampton were on the end of a 9-0 scoreline. As soon as Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off within the first three minutes, it was always going to be an uphill battle for Ralph Hasenhuttl and co, and it ended up being a footballing massacre.
Shaw was in good form, providing two assists, but he showed a lack of class after the match. The £19.8m-valued 25-year-old (Transfermarkt) spent his entire youth career with the Saints, and it was at St. Mary’s Stadium where he received his big break, but that did not stop him taking to Twitter to tweet a picture with the score and an emoji. It was also his first post on the platform since April 2020.
Did this tweet from Shaw lack class?
As you can imagine, these Saints fans were far from happy, and they let their feelings be known in the comments.
Let’s see what the Saints fans had to say about Shaw below
“Club were very quick to send a get well message after his injury and this is how he repays us. Cruel.”
“Wow!!! Just WOW @LukeShaw23 there are still coaches at the Football Club that helped you get to the position you’re in today and fans, like me, who sent you well wishes with your horrific injury. Complete and utter lack of class”
“This one hurts the most, every Southampton fan backed him through his tough spells and then this, remember where you came from and who gave you a chance Luke #SaintsFC”
“Absolutely classless from @LukeShaw23 – so disappointing Luke. Let yourself down massively there.”
“Zero class. Remember where you came from. #SaintsFC”
“Classless fool. Always hoped this lad would prove his critics wrong and do well, and last night he had a terrific game. But to gloat about beating the team that grew you, when they have a huge injury crisis, are playing with 10 and have appalling VAR decisions. No class #saintsfc”
