Nani sends an Instagram message to his 'friend' Luke Shaw after injury
Luke Shaw has received messages of support from across the sporting world following his horror leg break, and his former Manchester United team-mate Nani is the latest to dedicate a post to the Red Devils defender.
The England international suffered the horror injury after a heavy tackle from Hector Moreno in United’s 2-1 defeat by PSV Eindhoven in their Champions League group-stage opener.
Shaw is set to undergo an operation upon his return to Manchester after the 20-year-old full-back required 10 minutes of treatment on the pitch before he was stretchered off.
And Nani, who moved to Turkish side Fenerbahce from United in the summer transfer window, sent a special message to his friend via his Instagram page.
Nani wrote on his Instagram page: “Luke my friend, wish you a great and fast recovery! All the best! #fastrecovery”
Shaw moved to United from Southampton in a £27m deal in 2014.
After initially struggling to hold down a starting place under Louis van Gaal last season, Shaw has been ever-present in the United side this term.
