"Luke, every time they came in his corridor, the cross came in and a dangerous situation was coming. I was not happy with his performance.

"Every player can play bad but when you see, 'Please Mr, take me from the pitch'. That is what I thought."

Jose Mourinho certainly didn't hold back in his assessment of Luke Shaw following the 22-year-old's 45-minute stint against Brighton on Saturday.

Shaw spent the majority of his time on the pitch being berated by his manager from the sidelines before being replaced by Ashley Young.

It was embarrassing for the Englishman, whose future at Manchester United is now in serious doubt amidst rumours he is "upset" by the way Mourinho has treated him.

United's players aren't happy either, so much so that they believe Shaw is actually being "bullied" by Mourinho.

A huge can of worms has now been opened and it remains to be seen whether Shaw will actually play again for United between now and the end of the season.


So what's being done about it? According to the Telegraph, United's hierarchy are 'perturbed' by Mourinho's behaviour and fear Shaw's transfer value will start decreasing.

And now senior members of United's squad are preparing to take action by directly addressing Mourinho to try and come to a solution.

Michael Carrick could well be one of them as club captain, while Antonia Valencia and Nemanja Matic are also leaders in the dressing room.

The report adds that whereas Mourinho slammed Shaw for his performance against Brighton, United's players didn't think he played badly at all.

Seems Shaw has been a made a scapegoat for United and Mourinho's failings, which is very unfair if true.
