Shaw says Man Utd’s form is ‘difficult for fans to take’

Luke Shaw has apologised to the fans again after a disappointing performance at Old Trafford.

Manchester United are on a winless run of four games after being held to a goalless draw by La Liga outfit Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

The Reds haven’t won at Old Trafford since the opening day of the season against Leicester, having since lost against Tottenham and Derby County while drawing with Wolves.

There is just one more game before the next international break, which is when The Independent feel the United board will get to think about Mourinho’s position without noise in the background. Thus far Ed Woodward has given the impression he wants to delay a managerial change at Old Trafford.

However, Shaw believes United can bounce back when they host Newcastle at Old Trafford on Saturday evening.

“The last few games haven’t been good enough. We need that break and we need that break with a win,” Shaw told MUTV.

“It’s always a better feeling going into an international break with a win, because if you go in without a win, it’s a long time before our next game when you can put things right. It’s frustrating if we don’t, but I’m sure we’ll bounce back.

“We keep saying that after every game and I’m sure it’s hard for the fans to take, but you don’t know what else you can say.

”We need to win on Saturday and we have to win and we have to do it for ourselves, for the team, for the staff and most importantly for the fans.

“They’ve had a hard couple of weeks, I’m sure, and we have too, as players. We’ll do our best to make it right on the weekend.“

Shaw shouldn’t have to explain anything. He is one of a few players putting a shift in and leaving his dignity intact, despite being challenging by Mourinho in a public manner a number of times.
