Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has taken to social media to confirm that he will be returning to England today, four days after he suffered a double fracture to his right leg.

The left-back was injured during United’s Champions League group stage opener away to PSV, and has remained in an Eindhoven hospital since, where he has undergone two operations.

Having made an excellent start to the season, Shaw now faces a minimum of six months on the sidelines after being on the receiving end of Hector Moreno’s tackle.

He was taken to the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on Tuesday evening and has remained there since. However, the 20-year-old posted a big thank you to all of the doctors and support staff
there on Instagram.

The England international said: “I just wanna say a massive thank you to everyone at St Anna hospital for all the care and attention they have given me the last few days.

“Something I will never forget! Am pleased to be flying back to Manchester today so I can start my journey back onto the football pitch!”

Shaw is shown smiling in the photos – see below – and even sticking his thumb up. This must be a good sight for Manchester United fans, who may have feared the worst when the youngster went
down and failed to get back up again at the Philips Stadion.

Having had two operations, the United starlet can now at least continue his recovery back home.

The former Southampton defender’s first game out of action will be a return to the South coast tomorrow. His absence will force Louis van Gaal to reshuffle a settled back four.

An impressive start to the season saw Shaw start all eight of United’s opening fixtures, but now it is expected that either Daley Blind or Marcos Rojo will deputise at left full-back.
