Luke Shaw is Manchester United’s Player of the Season.
The 23-year-old has had his fair share of struggles since arriving at the Theatre of Dreams, be it with freak injuries, or against current manager Jose Mourinho.
But the left-back has fought his way out through it all, and has shined brightly since the start of the season, effectively earning international call-ups and becoming one of the guaranteed names on the United team sheet in the process.
The English full-back has now ended the season with two main prizes at United’s awards ceremony on Thursday night. He’s been named the Players’ Player of the Year and Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year .
Here’s how fans on social media reacted:
A defender has won Manchester United's Player of the Year award in the same season they've conceded 52 league goals – their worst defensive record since 1978-79. 🙃

Luke Shaw being voted our best player by his teammates and our fans just about sums up how fucking awful this season has been. Please, make it stop 🙏

Luke Shaw wins POTY? He's had some good games but a lot of bad ones too. Lindelof would've been my choice but it's hardly an embarrassment of riches. More just an embarrassment.

Manchester United players have chosen Luke Shaw as the players player of the player. It’s come to a point they can’t even be trusted with that anymore, what the hell 😟
