Manchester United’s Luke Shaw ruled out for one month with injury

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United’s new left-back Luke Shaw will miss the first month of the season after being ruled out with an injury.

The 19-year-old struggled with his fitness on tour after being told by Louis van Gaal that he wasn’t fit enough to be a wing-back in his sides and this injury is a real setback to the start of his career at United.

In his absence, Ashley Young or Reece James are likely to deputise but Shaw’s injury leaves United in dire straits with defenders as Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Tyler Blackett and Reece James are the only fit defenders in the current squad.

There was a real necessity for new defenders before injuries to Jonny Evans, Rafael and now Shaw exposed the lack of depth in the squad but they have become even more apparent following the bad luck United have had with injuries before the season has even begun.
