Shaw: I'm happy with new defensive role
Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has spoken about how playing in his new position has helped him reach his best form of the season so far.
Shaw: The boss has been unbelievable for meVideo
“To be fair, I played it a couple of times last season and it's a role that I have been enjoying,”he said.
“Don't get me wrong – it's not too much different to left-back. I'm still kind of in the same position [of the pitch].
“But I'm enjoying it, and I've said before, wherever the manager wants to play, I'm happy to play and happy to be on the pitch to give my all for the team.”
“I think man-management-wise, he’s been unbelievable for the whole squad and he’s brought a smile to everyone’s faces. I think you see that every day,”he continued.
“He’s been brilliant and the lads are all really enjoying it and I think even more so now that we’re getting better results. The team are coming back and we’ve got a lot of players back.
“We’ve got an important second half of the season and Ole’s been great. We’re all really enjoying working under him and we need to keep giving him results.”
Shaw explains his positive mindsetVideo
“Luke was out for two months and he’s done really well in a new position,”said the manager.
“It’s mixing between left-back and the left side of centre-back. He runs forward more as a left centre-back than as a full-back. I’ve been very pleased with him there.”
