Luke Shaw has been challenged to prove Jose Mourinho that he is worthy of a place in the Manchester United team by stepping his game up for the Red Devils by Tony Gale.

It has been a difficult few months for Shaw at Old Trafford following Mourinho’s appointment as the club’s new manager back in the summer of 2016.

Shaw has been struggling with injury problems and has been unable to hold down a regular spot in the first team in recent seasons.

The England defender is yet to make an appearance for Manchester United in the Premier League this season.

Gale, however, is a huge admirer of the left-back and believes that he will be capable of proving himself as worthy of a regular spot in the first team at Old Trafford in the coming weeks and months.

Gale told Sky Sports News on Tuesday morning: “I think he’s a terrific player.

“I just think he needs to get his confidence back and more importantly show a strength of character to say ‘I want to play here, this is my role, I’m the best player here, I don’t worry about all the things going on around me, I’m going to make this place my own’.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Tottenham Hotspur on Saturday afternoon.

The Red Devils head into the game looking to get back to winning ways after the disappointment of their 2-1 loss to Huddersfield in the Premier League last weekend.

That defeat left Mourinho’s men five points behind Manchester City.
