Luke Shaw: Manchester United defender could make FA Cup final

Luke Shaw has been visited in hospital by Hector Moreno and will be offered the use of a psychologist to aid his Manchester United recovery.

Shaw suffered a double leg break following a challenge by Moreno in United’s 2-1 Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night, undergoing surgery later that evening.

He is scheduled to have a second operation in Eindhoven on Friday and, ahead of that, has been visited by Moreno and PSV boss Phillip Cocu, according to The Sun.

A hospital source is said to have told the newspaper: “Moreno and Cocu handed Shaw some gifts and said how sorry they were over what happened.

“Luke really appreciated their visit and the goodwill messages.”

Moreno had already wished Shaw well after the game, and later on Twitter.

“I just feel really bad because I was involved in the accident. I feel really sorry.

“I think I played the ball, but in this kind of situation I don’t care if it was a foul, I feel bad for him, for his family.”

As Shaw prepares to begin a long period of rehabilitation, United are set to offer the left-back the use of a psychologist to help him through the mental journey.

A club source told the Daily Star: “Part of the recovery process will involve the player dealing with his mental demons and the bad memories of what happened to him that night.

“A psychologist will be made available to him if needed, to talk him through it all and help his chances of being mentally ready to return to the game.”
