Luke Shaw thanks Mourinho for public criticism

Luke Shaw thanks Mourinho for public criticism

He started only 17 Premier League matches in the two seasons following the injury.

Luke Shaw of England looks on during an England press conference at St Georges Park on September 4, 2018 in Burton-upon-Trent, England.

The left back offered a grisly insight into the full extent of the broken leg that he suffered playing for Manchester United against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League three years ago.

Speaking to the media ahead of England's UEFA Nations League game with Spain, Shaw said: "I'd be lying if I said I didn't think about stopping playing".

"I almost lost my leg.I was really close to actually losing my leg". "I was really close to actually losing my leg".

He was of the view that he will never leave football whatever happens, but after six months of treatment what the doctor has to tell him was horrendous.

"At the time they were thinking about flying me back and, if I had flown back, then I would have probably lost my leg because of the blood clots and stuff in the leg".

"That made me want it more".

"At this stage I feel really good and just focusing on what's to come, doing things right and training hard".

According to Express (UK), it was not the physical injury that dented the left-backs performance but rather the mental scars that had weighed down on the former Southampton player. Maybe he was right but I don't want to keep focusing on that.

England start their UEFA Nations League campaign against Spain before rounding off the global break with a friendly against Switzerland, and the former Stoke City player believes that Shaw has done enough to earn a spot in Southgate's starting XI.

Fellow fan J.A.O. feels the full-back has been the deserving victor of the club's Player of the Month award, something Shaw himself would not have imagined this time previous year.

"I spoke with him before the season and he said he wanted me to stay and fight for my place, and that motivated me a lot in the off-season".

He has how completed a route back to the top after returning to form with United and earning an England recall, but memories from the most testing period of his career remain painful. "I'm feeling the best ever, not just on the pitch but off it", he added. "I wanted to prove to him I could do what he said I couldn't".

"You often hear people say it's better to break your leg than to have ligament damage, a knee injury, something like that", Warnock said on BBC Radio 5 Live.
