Jose Mourinho signalled that Luke Shaw’s Manchester United career is over, arguing that the England international’s attitude is now so poor he no longer deserves even a place on the bench.
Shaw has not played for United since a 1-1 draw with Bournemouth at Old Trafford nearly a month ago. Even though Manchester United are hampered by injury and suspensions, Mourinho said there was no chance of the left-back even being named as a substitute on Tuesday night against Everton.
“It is difficult for him to be on the bench,” he argued. “I cannot compare him with Ashley Young, with Matteo Darmian, with Daley Blind. I cannot compare the way he trains, the way he commits, the focus, the ambition. I cannot compare. He is a long way behind.”
