Luke Shaw returns to England after visit from Hector Moreno

first_imgLuke Shaw was due to leave hospital on Saturday after a visit from the PSV defender whose challenge broke his right leg in two places. Hector Moreno broke Shaw’s tibia and fibula when he slid in on the Manchester United full-back in the 15th minute of PSV’s 2-1 win at the Philips Stadion on Tuesday. Shaw had an operation on the leg at the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on the outskirts of Eindhoven on the night of the match and stayed there until he was given the all clear to return to Manchester on Saturday. “I just wanna say a massive thank you to everyone at St Anna hospital for all the care and attention they have given me the last few days,” Shaw wrote on Instagram on Saturday morning. ”Something I will never forget! ”Am pleased to be flying back to Manchester today so I can start my journey back onto the football pitch!” Shaw will have another minor operation in Manchester before returning home either Tuesday or Wednesday. It emerged on Saturday that Moreno and PSV manager Phillip Cocu had visited Shaw in the hospital on Thursday. “We first asked whether Shaw would meet us, which he wanted to,” Cocu told a press conference. “We offered him the help of PSV should he need anything in relation to his recovery. “It has affected him (Moreno), it has affected the others and it has affected me.” Press Association The first match Shaw will miss is a trip to his old club Southampton on Sunday. It will be the first time that another former Saints player Morgan Schneiderlin has returned to St Mary’s since his £25million move to Old Trafford. Schneiderlin spent seven years at Southampton, playing a key role in their rise from League One to European qualification last term. But, perhaps mindful of the fact that Shaw and Adam Lallana were booed by Saints fans last term, the Frenchman is unsure what kind of reception he will get on the south coast this weekend. “We will see (what the reception is) but I know, and I think also the fans know, that I gave my best to Southampton,” the midfielder told United Uncovered. “I know there have been some up and downs at the club. In the first two years after I came we went down to League One, but I left the club in the Premier League with their best [points] record in the league ever. “I fought for this team with my team-mates. So we’ll see what the reception is but we parted on good terms.” Schneiderlin admits it will be an odd occasion, but one he believes he can handle. “It will be strange in a way to go in the away dressing room. I’ve never seen the away dressing room,” he said. “I’ll see all the people that I worked with for seven years all behind the scenes. I know all the staff there so it will be strange for me but I need to stay focused on my game and put all those things aside. “I need to just work on my game and be as focused as I can, but it will be very nice to savour.” With Shaw absent, Louis van Gaal has to pick a new left-back. Ashley Young, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo are the main contenders. The good news for the United manager is that captain Wayne Rooney has overcome a hamstring and is fit to start the match. last_img read more
