Manchester United: Luke Shaw cries in the changing room
Thoughts are with Manchester United’s Luke Shaw, who suffered a double fracture to his right leg in last night Champions’ League match in Eindhoven. (The match finished 2-1 to the Dutch.)
The Sun says Shaw was injured by a “reckless tackle” by PSV’s Mexican defender Hector Moreno. The referee deemed the tackle fair.
Manchester United manger Louis Van Gaal disagrees with the official:
“You can judge for yourself, but when I say it’s a penalty and a red card, I am a bad loser. Every word is interpreted in the wrong way, but it was a very bad tackle with two legs.”
Van Gaal is then invited to assess the extent of the damage:
“I am not a doctor but when you have a double fracture it is six months and he will not play in the group phase. I hope he can play again this season.”
