Positive news for Luke Shaw ahead of Man United comeback

England manager Roy Hodgson delivers the latest injury update on Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw

Roy Hodgson has revealed that Luke Shaw is progressing well in his recovery from his broken leg and could be selected for the England squad travelling to this summer’s European championships in France.

The Manchester United defender has been out of action since suffering a broken leg during the Red Devils’ Champions League loss to Paris Saint-Germain back in September.

Shaw has been working hard on his fitness levels at United’s Carrington training base in recent weeks as he bids to return to action as soon as possible.

The former Southampton defender could yet make his return for United before the end of the season.

And England manager Hodgson has revealed that Shaw recently informed him that his rehabilitation is progressing well, while also insisting that the left-back would be included in his Three Lions squad as long as he can prove his fitness.

Hodgson is quoted as saying by Sky Sports: “Luke’s in the same position as Wayne Rooney and Jack Wilshere.

“Luke Shaw’s a player we believe in, we think is an excellent talent. We think he will be a major competitor with the other left-backs for a place in the squad. All that remains is for him to get fit enough to be selected.

“I spoke to Luke on Sunday and he said to me that things are going well and that’s good news. We’re in the hands of the club, to some extent.

“If they decide they don’t want to risk him in the final games, they do want to hold him back, they want to give him a pre-season to get 100 per-cent fit, there’s not much I can do.”
