Luke Shaw hits back at Mourinho

Manchester United and England defender Luke Shaw says he does not understand why his former boss Jose Mourinho continues to criticise him.

This comes after the Portuguese football mentor said Shaw’s set-piece delivery was “drastically bad” in England’s 1-0 win over Czech Republic.

Mourinho has been working as a pundit on Talksport for Euro 2020.

“Clearly I am in his head a lot and he clearly thinks about me a lot,” said Shaw.

Speaking of his time playing under Mourinho, the 25-year-old footballer added that: “There is no hiding that we didn’t get on.”

The defender helped the Red Devils finish second in the English Premier League table last season.

To put a cherry on top, he was also named in the Premier League Team of the Year for 2020/21 after becoming a first-team regular under Mourinho’s replacement, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

“I think he was a brilliant manager but, you know, the past is the past. It is time to move on. I am trying to move on but, obviously, he can’t,” he adds.

“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.

“What he says now is nothing compared to how it used to be if I am being totally honest.

“I am so past it now. I have grown up a lot. The three years I had with him, I learnt a lot. I find it easy to ignore him now and even laugh about it. But it’s better just to ignore it and move on with my life.”

Shaw has turned his attention to England’s last-16 match against Germany on Tuesday night.

“It would feel unbelievable to beat them,” he says in conclusion.
