Luke Shaw speaking with Manchester United psychologist

Football News

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw is speaking with the club's psychologist as he goes in search of making a success out of his Old Trafford career. 

This has been reported by the Daily Mail, who claim that the Red Devils youngster, who signed for the club in a £28 million deal from Southampton this past summer, is struggling to adapt to his new surroundings in Manchester. 

In and out 

Shaw has failed to hold down a regular place in the club's starting XI under the Van Gaal regime, with the likes of Marcos Rojo and Daley Blind often coming into the side down to fill the left-back position. 

In fact, Shaw last featured for United in the club's 2-1 defeat to Arsenal in the FA Cup back in March, so things haven't been easy for him at the Premier League giants in the last couple of months. 

It appears, then, that after being looked after so well at the St Mary's under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino, he's still finding his feet at the Theatre of Dreams. 


In fact, he recently admitted that it has been a difficult debut season for him at United, as he told Match of the Day magazine: "It's been a frustrating one because of the injuries I've picked up but I'm loving it!

"If I was to write a school report on my first season here I'd give myself a C-.

"You don't realise just how big Man United is until you're actually here - it's frightening! It is the biggest club around."

Shaw, then, will no doubt be hoping to prove his credentials in the near future, and may well have the opportunity to shine tomorrow evening as the Red Devils travel to Stamford Bridge to take on Premier League leaders Chelsea. 

There's still time 

Ok, so things haven't quite gone to plan for Shaw under the guidance of Van Gaal this term, but there's still time for him to prove his credentials in the red shirt of United. After all, he's still just 19-years-old, and is an exceptionally talented young man.

Ultimately, such a big move for a huge transfer fee at his age may well have acted as a hindrance to his progression, but he's more than capable of going from strength-to-strength over the next few years.

It's crucial the Manchester United staff now look after him in the right way as he attempts to turn things around at the Premier League giants.
