Paul Scholes: What makes Luke Shaw Man United's best left-back


Shaw made his first start for United in 219 days on Tuesday night in the side's Champions League clash against CSKA Moscow.

The former Southampton left-back, who was making only his third appearance of the season and his first start since April, impressed as United secured the 2-1 victory which ensured they qualified for the knockout stages as group winners.

"Really unsafe, creating a lot, great intensity in his game".

As United is trying to unsettle rivals Man City from the top spot in the Premier League and also vying for other trophies, its a top priority for the manager to get in Rose as per a report in the Independent. I'm not sure, the problem he has got is that Ashley Young has been brilliant at left wing back.

"It was no surprise that in 80 minutes he's feeling the consequences of that intensity; it's normal as it's the first match of the season for him".

"Very positive performance", Mourinho said.

"I wanted to make changes but changes in players that needed it and not spend a change on Luke".

"I was satisfied with his performance. I would always pick my strikers to score the goals and it was good for him to score". "It's not easy to give an opportunity to a player who doesn't play for many months in matches where the team really needs [a] result", the Portuguese explained.

The reasons behind his exile have been well-documented, not least by Jose Mourinho himself, who rarely misses an opportunity to criticise the England worldwide in public.

Shaw's fitness has come in for plenty of criticism this season and United legend Paul Scholes has interestingly claimed that the youngster's lifestyle is simply not up to scratch when he's not playing. "We had Wayne Rooney, who was a player if he missed a couple of games you knew if he wasn't looking after himself".

Jose is wary about the quality he has in left-back position and Rose will add a lot of steel as the 27-year-old is experienced with both Spurs and England.
