Luke Shaw names dream Manchester United five-a-side

Luke Shaw has played with some amazing players at Manchester United and with the England national team, but he has chosen the five best for his dream five-a-side team.

It must have been a difficult decision to snub Robin van Persie, but Shaw felt as though he couldn’t leave Marcus Rashford out.

In goal stands the “brilliant” David de Gea and Shaw picked himself in a one-man defence.

Paul Pogba and Wayne Rooney are the chosen midfielders, with Rashford up front.

“It’s hard this,” said Shaw during a Q&A with the club’s official website. “For my keeper… this is tough because I’ve played with some very good keepers.

“I’ve played with Deano a little bit but not too much so I can’t put him in, but he’s a brilliant keeper.

“I think Joe Hart deserves a mention because he was an unbelievable keeper. When I was away with England and played with him I was really impressed with the way he was and the keeper he was, I thought he was absolutely top notch.

“I’m going to stick with David [De Gea] in goal and then in defence… this is really hard!

“I’ve got to put myself in and then I’ll have two in midfield – Rooney and Pogba and then one left… a striker.

“Of course, I played with Van Persie and he was an unbelievable finisher, but I think I’m going to say, because he’s always on the left side with me and I like having him in front of me, I think I’m going to have to say Rashy.”

I’ve no real problem with Shaw being in a one-man defense for five-a-side because he is well able to defend and attack in equally brilliant measures.

Pogba and Rooney as a midfield duo offers a fantastic range of passing.

Rashford will need to keep developing to earn the nod over Van Persie, though, but that’s just my opinion.
