Solskjaer held talks with Man Utd star who felt down after FA Cup defeat

According to The Sun, Luke Shaw has held talks with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after a series of testing weeks at Manchester United.

The England left-back was left with no other choice but to pull out of the ongoing internationals with injury, meaning he could return to Manchester for recovery.

Solskjaer seems an approachable coach for players who are having issues or wish to get something off their chest.

Shaw had a “long and open discussion” with the United manager after the Reds were knocked out of the FA Cup, the story goes…

He seemingly took the defeat badly as it ruins pretty much any realistic chance we had of winning silverware this season.

The Sun’s source is quoted as saying: “Luke took the Wolves defeat pretty bad. Ole had a chat with him to try and pick him up.

“It was long and frank and he was trying to keep him going. Luke felt he and the rest of the defenders allowed Wolves into the game.

“Ole and Luke spoke after he had dealt with the main squad. They have a good relationship and get on really well. 

“It wasn’t anything serious but it just shows how much all the squad care for Ole and what he has brought to the club.” 

Shaw is still a young lad learning his trade and Solskjaer could be a great guardian for his progress at United. After breaking back into the United side, the former Southampton defender will now aim to get back playing for the Three Lions.

Solskjaer will hope Shaw is fit and ready to take on Watford in the league for United’s next outing. We’re not well stocked at left-back.
