Neville admits he’s “embarrassed” for Man United’s Shaw after Mourinho criticism

Date Posted,April 3, 2017

Phil Neville admitted he would be “embarrassed” if Man United boss Jose Mourinho had called him out in the same way he did Luke Shaw.

The former Southampton defender was once the most expensive teenager in football but was left out of United’s squad for their goalless draw with West Brom.

Mourinho later made a damning assessment of the 21-year-old, accusing him of being “a long way behind” other players in the squad in a fight for a place on the bench.

The Portuguese added that he simply “cannot compare the way he [Shaw] trains and commits, the focus, the ambition [with others in the team]”.

Former Old Trafford favourite Neville spoke out about Mourinho’s recent comments and added some of his own thoughts.

“Having played at Manchester United, I think I’d be embarrassed as a player if those accusations were levelled at me in terms of training performances,” Neville told Sky Sports.

“To play football at Manchester United you need to train at 110 per cent, you need to be determined and focused; the fundamentals of a professional footballer.”
