Watching World Cup Motivated Shaw To Become A ‘Man’

England's Luke Shaw conceded watching the World Cup from afar provided the motivation he needed to grow up and start delivering on his potential for Manchester United.

Shaw has only played seven minutes of global football in the three years since as he has struggled to hold down a place in the United team until the start of this season.

Luke Shaw of England looks on during an England press conference at St Georges Park on September 4, 2018 in Burton-upon-Trent, England.

Manchester United left-back and England global Luke Shaw revealed he almost lost his leg after a breaking it in two places against PSV Eindhoven in 2015.

With steepest hike in year today, petrol, diesel prices at record high
In Kolkata, the price of petrol has been increased to ₹82.88 per litre while the diesel price has gone up to ₹74.92 per litre. The prices of petrol and diesel touched a new high on Thursday with Mumbai paying the maximum among the four metros.

However, Shaw has impressed in playing every minute of United's season so far, and when asked about Mourinho's treatment of him, he said: I think he got frustrated with me because he knew I could do better.

"No one knows but I was really close to actually losing my leg". Of course, if I knew that I would [still] never have stopped, even if he had told me there was a worry, I would have tried [to carry on playing football].

"At the time, they were thinking about flying me back, but If I'd flown back, I would probably have lost my leg because of the blood clots".

I have got two scars down my leg where they had to cut it open and pull them out. There weren't many chances last season, but I've started this season off and played four times.

With Young now ousted out of the squad, Danny Rose would've expected to step up to the number one left-back position, but he failed to shine in England's two matches against Belgium in Russian Federation, and he has struggled to show his best for Spurs this season, so with Shaw flourishing at the moment he has to be the man to be given the chance to continue his form on Saturday.

"My leg break was a very tough time", he said ahead of England's first matches since they reached the World Cup semifinals without him in the squad.

England start their UEFA Nations League campaign against Spain before rounding off the global break with a friendly against Switzerland, and the former Stoke City player believes that Shaw has done enough to earn a spot in Southgate's starting XI. Maybe he was right but I don't want to keep focusing on that.

"I had a chat with the manager before the season and he said to me that he wanted me to stay and fight for my place, and that motivated me a lot over the off-season. He's played a big part but I've done a lot too to get back into his team and earn his trust back". I don't care about that any more.
