Luke Shaw has given a brutally honest assessment of Manchester United’s disappointing 2018/19 campaign to Sky Sports.
The Red Devils finished sixth in the Premier League and missed out on Champions League qualification. A good spell in form after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer came in to replace José Mourinho was almost forgotten when our performances and results nosedived.
For me, Shaw wasn’t player of the year for United but he took the honour on awards night. Victor Lindelof was also in with a shout after looking like our most improved player that season, despite needing to do a lot more in order to be considered a top defender (even if Barcelona think so).
Telegraph reporter James Ducker picked up on some quotes from an interview Shaw did with Sky, as tweeted below:
Candid from #mufc player of year Luke Shaw to Sky: “I didn’t really feel like anyone deserved the player-of-the-year award because of the season we had as a team. There is more to come from me and everyone needs to be better because last season was somewhere near embarrassing.”

United were awful last season and nobody really did themselves any favours on the pitch, bar Scott McTominay maybe… at least he looking like he cared and took responsibility.
