Shaw reveals he vowed to prove Mourinho wrong in showdown talks

Date Posted,April 14, 2017

Luke Shaw vowed to prove Jose Mourinho wrong during clear-the-air talks with the Manchester United manager.

The left-back’s attitude and commitment was questioned by Mourinho after being dropped from the Red Devils squad.

He has since returned to the fold in recent weeks after requesting a meeting with the United boss.

The England international made just his third Premier League start in six months at Sunderland on Sunday and concedes he fell short of Mourinho’s standards earlier in the season, reports the Manchester Evening News.

“I had a really good chat with him after those sort of words came out and I totally agree with him. I will do whatever he wants,” Shaw said.

I’ve always been a hard worker but I think if I look back I wasn’t doing as hard as he likes and, like I said, we had a really good talk, he discussed what he wanted from me and I think even in a week-and-a-half I’ve seen a massive change in myself not just on the pitch, on the training ground, but off it as well.

“And it’s my time to fight until the end of the season and show the boss what I can do and what I can bring to help his team.

“I remember having the meeting with him and telling him at the end: ‘I’m going to prove you wrong because I believe and I want to do that. Not just for myself but the fans that have been behind me and sent me really nice messages and support me through this time.’
