Jose Mourinho fires dig at Luke Shaw and issues warning to Harry Maguire during Manchester United’s clash vs Chelsea
Jose Mourinho has aimed a dig at Luke Shaw by claiming that Harry Maguire will need to cover the left-back ‘a lot of times’ during Manchester United’s defensive situations this season.
Mourinho was working as a pundit for Sky Sports for United’s Premier League opener against Chelsea on Sunday and during the half-time break, the Portuguese highlighted one situation where Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had been left exposed down Shaw’s left flank.
‘When a player is attracted to the inside and then Magurie is the one who has to jump on the outside, the United midfielders are not closing the space in the box,’ said Mourinho. ‘When Maguire is attracted to cover Luke Shaw, and he has to learn that he has to do this a lot of times, during the season he will learn he needs to do that.
From lvg to mourinho and now to ole, all these managers likes to play him when he is available. I don't know why a Player with poor first touch, poor finishing, poor passing can start whereas Mata, a much better Player struggled to have a new contract, cannot start every game.
He's not wrong though.
Look at how rarely Lindelof needs to cover for AWB. Compare it to Maguire-Shaw. Attacking wise, AWB doesn't offer alot lesser than what Shaw did recently.
If I'm the opposing team, I will ask my players focus attack on Shaw's flank too
