Luke Shaw expects to make Man United comeback against Wigan Athletic

by Leo Nieboer

Luke Shaw expects to make his comeback from a broken leg sustained last September at Wigan Athletic, according to the Guardian.

The youngster suffered a horrible double leg break in Man United’s opening Champions League game with PSV Eindhoven last September, and has been sidelined ever since.

He trained with the senior squad for the first time this week ahead of United’s first match of pre-season.

It has been reported that Shaw will have the opportunity to get some much needed minutes under his belt this Saturday.

To see Shaw take to the field once again, following such a cruel, career-threatening injury, will give everybody associated with the club a monumental lift.

The 21-year-old was the side’s stand-out player up to that point, acting as a constant springboard for launching attacks from the left (his injury itself stemmed from a penetrating, mazy run into the box). It felt like this was the season that would see Shaw announce himself to the world; but, as they say, football is a cruel, cruel game.

However, his recovery has gone incredibly well, and United fans will hope to see Shaw tearing up and down the left hand side with his usual tenacity and menace in these next few months.
