Luke Shaw has returned to Manchester United from England’s training camp amidst fears of injury.
The England FA confirmed in an official statement that the Manchester United left-back will not be travelling to Slovakia for their World Cup qualifier.
The statement is as follows:
“Luke Shaw has left the England camp and returned to Manchester United.
“With Danny Rose set to start against Slovakia in Trnava tomorrow night, Shaw has been allowed to return to Manchester to train with his club as a precautionary measure. Sam Allardyce’s remaining 22 players all travelled out to Slovakia this afternoon.”
Manchester United play local rivals Manchester City on the 10th of September, and would like Shaw to be available for selection. As per José Mourinho’s conference after the match against Hull City, Marouane Fellaini is set to miss the game.
Shaw has just returned from a nightmarish injury he suffered in the Champions League match against PSV last season. He suffered a horrific leg break after he was tackled by PSV’s Hector Moreno. This injury led to him being out for rest of the season.
Shaw recently spoke about the injury in an interview.
He said: “I don’t mind answering questions about my leg. I think sometimes people don’t like talking about it, but I’m not bothered.
“I wasn’t bothered watching videos of it or pictures of my leg. That might sound a bit weird, but I feel comfortable talking about it because now I feel stronger than ever. At first I did start thinking, ‘Am I really like this?’, but it’s my leg at the end of the day.
“Obviously I went through a bad time during the leg break, but I came through that stronger as a person. Now it does not faze me.”
Hopefully he recovers from his latest injury setback soon, and continues his development at Manchester United.
