Man United legend Andy Cole encouraged by ‘impressive’ Luke Shaw

Manchester United legend Andy Cole heaps praise on Red Devils left-back Luke Shaw after Aston Villa win

Andy Cole says he has been impressed with Manchester United defender Luke Shaw this season.

The England full-back has helped the 20-time English champions keep successive clean sheets after a 1-0 victory over Aston Villa on Friday night.

Shaw made just 20 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils under Louis van Gaal last season following his £27m move from Southampton.

And United legend Cole praised Shaw’s hard work over the summer to force his way into Van Gaal’s first-team at the start of this season.

The England left-back caught the eye of the 13-time Premier League champions after he made 66 top-flight appearances for Southampton between 2012 and 2014.

Shaw is still waiting to score his first goal for the Red Devils following his big-money move from the Saints.
