Shaw underwent an operation in Eindhoven on Tuesday night to repair a double fracture of his right leg hours after an awful challenge from PSV’s Hector Moreno.
Figures from across the sporting world have united in their support for the youngster, who is expected to be on the sidelines for at least six months.
Memphis added to the concern surrounding Shaw but insisted he is “sure” that the Englishman will bounce back.

Memphis had been establishing a good relationship with Shaw both on and off the pitch and the injury is bound to hit him particularly hard.
United looked like they had finally found a reliable and consistent back four but Shaw’s absence will force a reshuffle. Daley Blind is capable of playing on the left side of defence, as is Marcos Rojo. How the United squad copes with Shaw’s injury remains to be seen.
