Man United’s Luke Shaw sends heartfelt message to former Chelsea man

Luke Shaw has a special message for Demba Ba following the striker's recent leg break

Luke Shaw has sent a heartfelt message to Demba Ba following the former Chelsea striker’s recent leg break.

Shaw himself is just on his way back to full fitness after suffering a horrific broken leg during Manchester United’s Champions League defeat by PSV Eindhoven back in September.

Ba suffered the injury while in action for Shanghai Shenhua in the Chinese Super League in recent days.

And United defender Shaw has taken the time out to record a special message for the striker after his injury setback.

Shaw told MUTV in a specially recorded message for Ba: “I am so sorry to hear of the news of your latest injury.

“Obviously I have been through the same thing so I know how you are feeling right now. But I think the main thing for you now is to keep strong, and to keep your family and friends close.

“For me that was the most important thing at the time, to have the people that I care about the most next to me.

“So I am sending all my best, I hope the operations go well, your recovery goes quickly and you are back on the pitch in no time. I am sure you will be stronger than ever.”

Shaw is currently in China with his Manchester United team-mates as Jose Mourinho’s men continue their preparations for the new Premier League season.

Mourinho watched his side slump to a 4-1 defeat by Borussia Dortmund in their most recent pre-season friendly on Friday afternoon.

United, without Shaw, finished fifth in the Premier League last season and won the FA Cup under Louis van Gaal.
