Luke Shaw and injuries go hand in hand. Just when the Manchester United left-back came finally out of his blocks to get to a great start this season, he once again was hit by an injury.
Shaw was fantastic for United in the first 4 matches of the Premier League 2018-19 campaign. The early promise and rise earned him a call in the England national team.
With the UEFA Nations Cup having started this year, the Three Lions were pitted against Spain in their League A game opener.
Shaw started the match ahead of Danny Rose and played a strong hand in the side’s opener. In the 2nd half, Shaw was stretchered off early on after a collision with Dani Carvajal. At least 10 members of the medical team assisted him.
Players, colleague and fans were worried about Shaw, but hours later, the youngster thanked everyone, and stated that he is a fighter and will be back soon.
Thank you for all the love and support I am doing fine and am in the best hands. I’m a fighter so I will be back soon! ❤💪🏼
