Hector Moreno has revealed Manchester United star Luke Shaw made him smile when he visited the defender in a hospital in Eindhoven.
The Red Devils ace sustained a double fracture of the leg following Moreno's first half challenge in the Champions League clash between United and PSV last week.
However, despite being set for a lengthy spell on the sidelines, Shaw has reassured Moreno that the incident 'was part of football'.

According to the Mexican international, the Manchester United defender was 'very kind' and didn't blame him for the injury.
Speaking to Dutch website Metronieuws, the PSV ace stated: "What happened to Shaw was very unfortunate. I was just in shock.
"I’m glad I was able to go speak to him. I went with Phillip Cocu to the hospital.
"That was very difficult at the beginning, but he was very kind to me and didn’t blame me.
"He had seen the images and said it was part of football. That made me smile."
Shaw will return
Let's be honest, it's going to be a long road to recovery for Shaw in his pursuit of regaining full fitness. He's certainly going to go through a number of ups and downs along the way, but there's no reason why he won't be able to prove his credentials at Old Trafford once again.
Time is most definitely on his side. At just 20-years-old, the former Southampton player has his whole career ahead of him. The left-back was in fine form before his injury, so must stay positive over the coming weeks and months.
Of course, securing a place in the England squad for the 2016 European Championships now appears to be unlikely, but he should have many more tournaments in front of him.
