Luke Shaw Needs To Improve To Get Back Into The Starting Eleven - Jose Mourinho

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has come out to say that he is staying patient with Luke Shaw as the England left-back returns from his latest injury lay-off but also insist Shaw has to improve to get into the starting line-up.

Shaw has played just 48 appearances for United since the move due to a mixture of form and fitness issues, most pertinently the double leg break that brought his second season at the club to an abrupt halt.
Shaw made his latest return to fitness as a half-time substitute in Wednesday's Carabao Cup win over Burton and, ahead of Saturday's trip to the defender's former club, the Portuguese said “He has to work. The media saw the Burton game, you saw the same as I see, so are you asking if he plays tomorrow? No, he is not playing tomorrow. He has to work. He has to improve. Look, he doesn't play for six months. I am not expecting him to arrive on Wednesday and to be man of the match or to be running up and down for 45 minutes. It's just a process. He doesn't play for a long, long time. You have other players in the Premier League that in this moment who are not starting matches and their managers just say 'they're not in the best conditions'. And we're speaking about some of the best players of the Premier League. I heard last week the Chelsea manager saying that, I heard Arsenal manager said that. The players are not in their ideas, in their analysis, they're not in the best form after important injuries and long time without playing. Luke had surgery and a long time without playing football. I cannot expect him to be back and to be strong, strong, strong in his work.”
