Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has come out to say that Luke Shaw is a long way behind his Manchester United team-mates in terms of focus and ambition. Shaw has made just two United appearances in the last four months and, on Saturday, was not even selected for the bench against West Brom at Old Trafford, despite a depleted squad due to a string of injuries.Mourinho decided to name Matthew Willock in the United squad ahead of Shaw, who suffered a dreadful double leg break in September 2015 when Louis van Gaal was the Red Devils' manager.
Mourinho said “It's difficult for him to be on the bench. Because I cannot compare him with Ashley Young, or with Matteo Darmian, or with Daley Blind. I cannot compare the way he trains, the way he commits, the focus, the ambition. I cannot compare. He is a long way behind. I try, I give chances. I give chances, I try. Play again. Play again. Come on. Keep going. You have talent. They know they have talent. Okay, let's go. Let's try. Let's have one more opportunity. No pressure. Keep going, keep going, keep going. There is nothing else we can do.”
