Mourinho: Shaw 'deserves' United chance

Last updated : 05 December 2017 By Rob Dawson

Jose Mourinho says Luke Shaw deserves a chance in the Manchester United team.

Shaw has made two appearances this season totalling 48 minutes after falling down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

But the 22-year-old is in line to feature in the Champions League against CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night and Mourinho says the left-back has earned his chance.

He told a news conference on Monday: "When we speak about Luke Shaw, you are right that he's working to have an opportunity, and sooner or later that opportunity will arrive because he deserves that opportunity.

"He is selected for tomorrow for sure -- to start or be on the bench I cannot answer."
