Phil Neville has suggested that Luke Shaw should listen to the criticism aimed at him by manager Jose Mourinho.
Neville – who spent 10 years of his professional career at United – appears to back Mourinho’s stance, saying that Shaw should “take a massive look at himself”, but he feels that the 21-year-old can still go on to have a successful period at his current club.
The 40-year-old told BBC Radio 5 live: “He needs to take massive look at himself. On Saturday Jose Mourinho picked Ashley Young at left-back. He is a winger. He has played Matteo Darmian and Marcos Rojo at left-back. These are not out and out left-backs.
“He has potential to be one of best left-backs in Europe. I really believe in this kid. He needs to take a long look at himself.
“It might just be Jose trying to get something out of him. That attitude and professionalism that is needed to be the number one left-back at United. I am disappointed he is not number one. There must be reasons for that.”
