Man United left-back Luke Shaw is looking forward to making his long-awaited return after being sidelined for 10 months with a broken leg.

The 21-year-old was the victim of a horrific challenge in the Champions League clash against PSV in September 2015 and was ruled out for the rest of the season shortly after.

However, following successful rehab, Shaw is ready to return in the pre-season friendly against Wigan on Saturday.

“It feels really good,” Shaw told MUTV. “I think in the last couple of weeks we’ve been training really hard and everyone’s looking forward to the game, and of course I am as well.

“It was a really tough last eight or nine months until I got out on the training pitch and ever since then I haven’t looked back. From now on I’m just going to look forward and carry on doing what I did last year from the start.

“Everyone helped from the club and from outside the club. My family and friends played a massive part in it. Obviously I have said it before, but here’s a big thank you to the staff here who have looked after me really well and have got me back on the pitch.”

Shaw also gave an insight into what Jose Mourinho has brought to training sessions so far as he looks to guide Manchester United to the very top again.

“It’s been really good, enjoyable,” Shaw added. “He has a lot of different exercises, the training that we’re doing is sort of working on how we’re going to be playing.

“Everything is enjoyable and fun but at the same time it’s tactical so we know what we need to do.”
