Luke Shaw back to his best

The 2020/21 season saw the re-emergence of Luke Shaw as a truly top-class talent.

When Alex Telles arrived at Manchester United last year, many likely expected the Brazilian to be the Red Devils’ no.1 left-back with Shaw playing second fiddle.

That, however, has not been the case at all, with Shaw’s 2020/21 arguably his best-ever at senior level.

The Englishman impressed at both ends of the pitch, with his creative exploits a particular highlight:

Shaw was also named Man United’s Players’ Player of the Season last month:

Shaw on England pride & leg break injury

Now, on the back on a solid 2020/21, Shaw has earned himself a call-up to England’s 26-man Euro 2020 squad, with a case to be made that he should be the Three Lions’ starting left-back this summer.

Whilst with the England camp, Shaw has been speaking to the media and discussing his pride at making the squad:

“It’s extremely special to be able to make the 26-man squad. If you look at this time last year, speaking about England, I wouldn’t have been mentioned by anyone or by Gareth and at the start of the season, there was an aim to get back into the England squad.

“I was young and a bit naive [when I was called up in 2014]. And I think sometimes when I was in that situation I didn’t realise how big it was, the fact that I was here at a tournament. Young lads, nowadays they just go with it and I think maybe I did at that time.

“Now to be a part of this squad, I’m a bit more mature and understand things a lot better now, so massive pride and so proud to be able to be in a 26-man squad going to represent England, that’s the highest level you can get in my opinion in football and I’m just very grateful and massively looking forward to it.”

Shaw would also discuss his horrific injury from 2015 when he broke his leg against PSV and went on to miss 51 games for Man United:

“To be honest it was a very bad injury but the hospital, the way they dealt with me, I think I was quite lucky my family were there, my mum and dad. I had them right next to me as soon as I got to the hospital. A bit of family love always helps.

“Since then, of course, I knew it was going to be a long journey to try and get back to my best but I always believed I would. At times people always doubted me but deep down I pushed myself and believed one day I would be able to show people I can get back to a high enough level.

“I want to keep going. I want to improve as a player and also as a person. When my mum and dad were there, to make them proud. The main aim is to try and help England win a tournament.”
