Much has been said of Manchester United, their players, and the manager this season, and most of it has come in the form of criticism.
The team could not have asked for a more turbulent start to the campaign, and the fact that it is Mourinho’s 3rd season at the club, usually his worst, makes it even more worrisome.
Among all the speculation going on regarding the club, unrest in the dressing room is one of the major focal points of United’s poor start to the Premier League 2018/19 season.
In the midst of this, Marca have published a little snippet regarding Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea and his United teammate Luke Shaw.
England faced Spain recently, and despite the Red Devils’ goalkeeper being in good form throughout the game, all the eyes were on Shaw, who suffered a horrific injury through a clash of heads with Carvajal.
A win for Spain might have been the biggest source of happiness for De Gea on any other day, but this time, the no. 1 was only eager to know his friend’s medical situation as soon as the game was over.
The shot-stopper could not keep calm until he was assured that Shaw was doing fine, and the injury was not as cruel as initially feared.
Marca further spoke about Shaw’s equation with his fellow United teammates, as they revealed: ‘The injuries he has suffered and how complicated it has been to settle in the team at Old Trafford, has made him very loved and appreciated in the dressing room of United.’
The youngster has been in inspired form this campaign, and his good run at United earned him an England call up – two things that were seemingly impossible last year.
The defender only recently recovered to full fitness after a horrific injury, and the entire world of football is breathing a sigh of relief that he was not a victim of another one.
