During Manchester United’s press conference ahead of their clash against Sunderland on Saturday at Three O’clock, Manager Louis Van Gaal faced questions about Luke Shaw and the future for him as he recovers from a broken leg.
Luke Shaw suffered a broken leg in two places, after a challenge from Hector Moreno, on the 15th September during Manchester United’s first Champions League clash of the season with PSV in a 2-1 loss.
“He will be out for at least six months. You can’t predict the development of the rehabilitation. There is always more-and then he has to get fit. It is not easy and Luke knows he has a long way to go but the most important thing is he is mentally very strong” said Van Gaal.
It has also been revealed that Shaw will use electro muscle simulation to retain strength in his leg as he recovers.
Luke Shaw now faces a ‘race against time’ to be ready for next year’s Euros as his promising England career could now take a dip as reliable Arsenal left-back Kieran Gibbs and Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand are waiting in the wings to take his place.
