Shaw suffers double-leg fracture

3000Manchester United have confirmed that Luke Shaw has suffered a double fracture of his right leg, following an horrendous injury against PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.

The United left-back went to ground after a strong challenge from PSV’s Hector Moreno after what immediately looked to be a serious injury and had to be carried off the pitch while receiving oxygen.

“Luke Shaw has suffered a double fracture of the leg,” a spokesperson for United said, adding Shaw will now be transferred to Manchester to be operated on.

Louis Van Gaal said the injury was a cruel blow for the 19-year-old, who had so far done so well in his second season at Old Trafford

“He has a double leg fracture. He’s in hospital and he’ll be transfered tomorrow with us or maybe a day later,” Van Gaal said.

“A boy who came at 18 to Manchester and found it very difficult, then in his second season he’s fantastic, and then it happens like this.

“He was in the dressing room with the oxygen mask… he was crying.”
