Since suffering that horrific leg-break, in Holland, in a Champions League group game last season, Luke Shaw has found it hard to get his career back on track to where it was before the injury.

Currently, Luke is unable to secure a place in the Manchester United starting eleven and, as a consequence, has slipped out of the international picture.

The current international break may now have finished but it would seem that Luke has a huge task ahead of him to claim his international spot back once he gets back into the Manchester United side on a regular basis.

At the moment, Luke is, it would seem, third in the pecking order behind the likes of Danny Rose (Tottenham) and Ryan Bertrand (Southampton).

Talking about Luke`s predicament, the England boss, Gareth Southgate, had this to say to the media,

“We`ve got some pretty good left-backs, so it`s great to have that competition.

“Shaw must force his way back for United. He`s willing to take on the challenge, which is good.

“They have plenty of matches coming up for him to stake a claim.”


Hopefully hard work will see Luke reap the rewards although, come the summer, there may still be some questions floating around with regards to his long-term future at Old Trafford.
