Luke Shaw looking forward to working with Jose Mourinho at Man United

Luke Shaw has expressed his enthusiasm at the prospect of working with new boss Jose Mourinho ahead of the 2016/17 season.

The defender is part of Mourinho’s 25-man pre-season squad, who will take on Borussia Dortmund and Manchester City during their time in China.

He made an emotional comeback in Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Wigan Athletic last Saturday after being sidelined for 10 months with a double leg fracture last September.

Speaking to ManUtd.com, Shaw noted he was excited about working with the Special One.

“I’m really looking forward to working with him,” he said.

“We’ve done a couple of weeks now and I’ve spoken to him a couple of times and obviously the others players have talked to him as well.

“I think we are going to be challenging for every sort of title that we can go for this season. We all feel strong as a group and it’s important now to sort out the tactical side of what Jose wants us to do in games, so we’re practicing that in training sessions and hopefully we can take that into games and show a very strong side.”

Shaw’s return to first-team football is a huge milestone in his recovery, and this pre-season tour represents an excellent opportunity to recapture the blistering form that was so cruelly compromised last season at such an early stage.

The 21-year-old’s style perfectly reflects Mourinho’s ideal conception of a left-back: quick, bursting with energy, reliable at the back and also a threat going forward. Under the tutelage of the Portuguese boss, Shaw has a fantastic opportunity to cement himself in the first-team for many years to come.
