Luke Shaw has been frustrated by his career with Manchester United so far due to injuries but feels he is now ready to kick start the season after overcoming a hamstring problem.
The 19-year-old injured his hamstring in training ahead of United’s pre-season friendly against Valencia and has therefore been unable to make his competitive debut for his new club.
However now that Shaw has fully recovered, he is keen to make sure it is the only time he is ever injured for that length of time again.
“The injury got me down a little bit as I’ve never been injured for so long before,” Shaw said.
“I was a bit annoyed, but I’ve been back in training now for a couple of weeks.”
“It was literally in the last training session ahead of the game [Valencia]. I had to stop because I was in too much pain. I’m back up now, raring to go and hoping to stay injury-free and fit for the rest of the season.”
It is typical Shaw sustained the longest injury of his career just after he joined United but that is now hopefully behind him.
Moving forward, Shaw knows United have to make sure the calamitous result against Leicester City was a one off: “We know it [losing a game like that] isn’t good enough. We’re Manchester United. We cannot go 2-0 and 3-1 up and throw away a lead like that. We’ve since worked hard in training and hopefully it will pay off.”
