Luke Shaw defends Manchester United fan who threw green and gold scarf at him

Luke Shaw says he will ensure a fan who threw a green and gold scarf at him during the draw with Fulham avoids any further punishment.

It would be ridiculous to lose your season ticket over such a minor offence, especially when the gesture wasn’t done in an aggressive manner, but the Premier League might have a thing or two to say about coronavirus protocols.

The Red Devils were held to a draw on Tuesday night as they played their final home game of the season. It was the first time in 14 months that United fans were welcomed back to Old Trafford.

Edinson Cavani opened the scoring with a screamer but sadly it wasn’t enough to see United claim three points. However, Leicester City lost 2-1 against Chelsea in the later kick off which was enough to secure second spot for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.

Thousands of United fans made their voices loud and clear in opposing the Glazer family last night. A section sung anti-Glazer chants ahead of the match, while others held up ‘Glazers Out’ banners.

One supporter threw a green and gold scarf at Shaw as he prepared to take a corner. The left-back laughed and placed the scarf on the floor.

Stewards reported ejected the fan responsible.

Shaw has since replied to the fan in question, on Twitter, saying: “I understand completely, first match back at Old Trafford, emptions are high. I know there was nothing aggressive towards what you did. I will try my best to speak with someone and sort it out.”

Good lad, Shaw!
