Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has admitted his debut season at Old Trafford has not completely lived up to his own high expectations.
The former-Southampton star moved to Manchester United for £27m last summer, and he went on to travel to Brazil as part of Roy Hodgson's England squad.
But Shaw has struggled with injury this season, something that also would trouble him at St Mary's Stadium, and speaking to the club's official website, Shaw admitted it's been a difficult campaign.
"Just to know he [Louis van Gaal] has got trust in me is something special and I couldn't ask for any more," Shaw said.
"With all the injuries, it's been quite hard. My season hasn't been the best but not the worst either."
Manchester United's main goal this season was qualification for next term's Champions League competition, something they have all but achieved with two games remaining.
Their 2-1 away win at Crystal Palace, thanks to a Marouane Fellaini winning goal, basically clinched a spot - most likely ahead of Liverpool.
And Shaw, who is yet to test Champions League football, is looking forward to the challenge next season.
"As a 19-year-old boy, to be able to think that you'll be playing in the Champions League next season is really incredible," Shaw continued.
"It's something that I want to achieve but not just me, everyone else in the squad wants to achieve it too.
"It's one of the biggest competitions in the world and we all want to show what we can do on the big stage."
What do you think Manchester United fans - how would you grade Luke Shaw's first season at the club?
