Manchester United’s Luke Shaw ready to fly back from Netherlands after
United declined to comment any further on the matter, but it is understood that Shaw will have a second operation at the Dutch hospital as part of his recovery on Friday.
After three days’ treatment, he looks set to return to Manchester this weekend.
“We sent people to the Netherlands to take care of the travelling when he is coming back“. “Maybe tomorrow”.
PSV Eindhoven defender, Hector Moreno has apologised after making the tackle that broke Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw’s leg.
Shaw’s early season success and consistency had solidified his position at left-back.
“Phil Jones has come back” for “the first time” since picking up an injury in August, said Van Gaal.
Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said Manchester United are severely lacking in defensive options after Luke Shaw’s brutal leg break in the Champions League on Tuesday.
Van Gaal was irked when it was put to him that Rooney had failed to score in his last 10 league matches.
“It’s not easy, we have to cope with it, but it is a big loss”.
‘I was back in four or five months and you may be looking at next season for Luke Shaw.
Shaw had been developing a good partnership with the left wingers, particularly Memphis at the club but now other players will have a chance to get into the side.
Owen Hargreaves, who was covering the game on television, agreed with Van Gaal that it was reckless and out of control, therefore warranting a red card, and Peter Schmeichel’s reaction to Moreno winning Uefa’s man-of-the-match award was that he “shouldn’t even have been on the pitch”.
“You have to build up again a combination with the player in front of him“, Van Gaal continued to MUTV.
“Shaw is the line-up player and it is very hard to replace him when he is in such a good shape”. But we have in Blind, Rojo and in Ashley Young, good replacements. “We offered him the help of PSV should he need anything in relation to his recovery”.
Van Gaal declined to speak at length about his relationship with the manager who will be in the home dugout on Sunday.
He is 16 goals short of Charlton’s United record and Van Gaal has no doubt the striker will become the club’s top scorer of all time.
Van Gaal, in his news conference after Tuesday’s game, described Moreno’s challenge as “a very bad tackle with two legs”.
“I am not a doctor so I cannot say that, but when you have a double fracture it is I think until six months, ” the United manager said.
