Mourinho promises 'more chances' for Shaw after strong display

Shaw's touch map in Manchester United's win over CSKA Moscow

Left-back Shaw made only his third appearance of the campaign in United's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow after the £27 million man has found himself cast to the fringes this season.

Many fans have believed that Shaw's time at Old Trafford is nearing an end, with Newcastle United and Tottenham strongly linked with a move for the England worldwide, who has only made 50 appearances for United in three years.

It was 219 days since the England worldwide had started a match for United and it's rumoured that Mourinho has doubted his attitude and appetite to make it at the top. "He created a lot of danger and created a lot of risky situations".

"Very, very positive performance, especially with the ball going forward", he said of Shaw.

Despite being partly at fault for the visitors' only goal of the match, the former Southampton player impressed on his return to Jose Mourinho's starting XI.

'There was no surprise after 80 minutes he's feeling the consequences of that the intensity, it's normal in the first match of the season for him.

With only a minuscule chance of a United failure going into the match, José Mourinho still fielded a strong lineup to face the Russian side.

"He was waiting for quite a long time, he has been deserving for quite a long time". But he managed on for 90 minutes and really I told him this is not the best, this is just an opportunity for you to play and to improve your level.

The Argentina defender has recently returned from a long-term injury and has played in United's last three games.

"When we have a problem".

The January transfer window looms ever closer, and clubs across Europe are either busy listing players they wish to purchase, or protecting the talent they'd rather not let go. "I tell you the truth", Mourinho said. (Michael) Carrick, no chance. All the truth. Our opponents have all these issues. "We are a bit more humble".
