United fans react to Shaw's comments hitting back at Mourinho

Luke Shaw has hit back at former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Mourinho wrote in his Sun column after England beat the Czech Republic 1-0 that Shaw’s corners were ‘dramatically bad’.

Shaw has now had his say on the man who kept criticising him at Old Trafford.

Speaking to The Guardian, Shaw said: “It is time to move on. I am trying to move on but, obviously, he can’t.”



“He continuously talks about me, which I find quite strange. Even some of the lads have said: ‘What’s his problem?’ and: ‘Why does he keep talking?’ He just needs to move on.

“Hopefully he can find his peace with that and finally move on and stop worrying about me. Clearly I am in his head a lot and he clearly thinks about me a lot.

“I knew I would be able to outlast him and I have, and I can just focus on getting better and improving.”

Shaw’s dealt with the situation in exactly the right way. He’s flying right now, back in the England side following a great season for United.

He’s moved way past his tough period under Mourinho, but the Portuguese keeps trying to take potshots. It only reflects badly on him.

Well done Luke

At the end of the day, Mourinho is in the club’s past and Shaw is part of the future, which looks bright under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

United fans on Twitter have also had their say on Shaw’s comments.

So many United supporters were backing Shaw for standing his ground and making sure the ‘feud’ only looks embarrassing for one man – Mourinho.

Here’s how his comments went down on Twitter as England prepare to face Germany in their Euro 2020 Last 16 clash tomorrow evening:
