LUKE SHAW was still in tears yesterday, as he began his recovery from a double leg break that left his former manager Mauricio Pochettino “sick.”
Shaw suffered a fracture of the tibia and fibula in his right leg after a late challenge from Hector Moreno during Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV.
The defender was taken to the St Anna Ziekenhuis hospital on the outskirts of Eindhoven, where he had an operation on Tuesday night.
The former Southampton defender received a phone call from his old Saints boss Pochettino, who was distressed by the injury.
“I spoke with him this morning,” said Pochettino. When asked what Shaw said to him, Pochettino added: “It’s difficult because he was crying.
“You can understand that after the big injury.”
In the 15th minute of the Champions League group stage match, Moreno slid in from behind on Shaw with both feet, trapping the left-back’s right foot, which bent at an angle.
Incredibly, the Mexican was not punished for the challenge but he apologised for the tackle after the match.
“I feel really sorry,” the PSV defender said. “I just feel really bad because I was involved in the accident.”
Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick, Memphis Depay and David de Gea were among those sending support via social media.
