Luke Shaw sheds light on the spirit in Man United dressing room
The Manchester United full-back admits that the mood in the dressing room is positive
Luke Shaw has insisted that the mood in the Manchester United dressing room is still good despite successive Premier League losses.
The Red Devils were 2-1 winners against Leicester City in their season opener at Old Trafford to secure three points.
Manchester United suffered a surprise 3-2 loss to Brigton and Hive Albiuon last weekend to heap pressure on Jose Mourinho.
Indeed, the Portuguese head coach was accused of losing the dressing room ahead of the visit of title rivals Spurs.
However, Tottenham were 3-0 winners against the Red Devils thanks to goals from Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.
Mourinho was quick to underline that the Red Devils starlet has been one of Manchester United’s bright spots.
Speaking to Manchester United’s website about the current mood in the dressing room following a second successive Premier League defeats, Shaw said:
“Personally, I don’t really care about my performance, I care more about the result and the team,” he said. “It is a sad night for us, we have got to pick ourselves back up, keep working hard and we need to pick up points after two losses. We need to win and win in a good way. We played really well in the first half and if we keep playing like that, and take our chances, then we will win games.
“You see a lot of things in the media that go on about what our dressing room is like, but we have a really good spirit, a really good group of lads who want to work and achieve big things here. We have a group of hard workers and amazing talents, everywhere you look on the field. We have got to start taking our chances and I am sure we will start winning games.”
Manchester United finished in second spot in the Premier League table last term to secure their best finish since 2013.
Mourinho’s side finished a staggering 19 points behind defending Premier League champions Manchester City last term.
The Red Devils will take on Burnley at Turf Moor on Sunday evening in search of their second Premier League victory.
Manchester United lost 1-0 to Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final last term.
