Manchester United Defender Luke Shaw Set For Another Spell On Sidelines

Manchester United centre back Luke Shaw will see a consultant after damaging ligaments in his foot during the Premier League match versus Swansea City, British media reported on Tuesday.

The full back left the field nine minutes into the game at Old Trafford on Sunday, and boss Jose Mourinho said after the 1-1 draw that he suspected the England international had sustained a “big injury”.

The Red Devils, who also lost full back Eric Bailly to injury during the game, have a lengthy casualty list, with centre backs Phil Jones, Chris Smalling and Marcos Rojo all sidelined along with inform striker Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

The former Southampton defender has endured a difficult time since returning from a double leg break that kept him out for nearly a year, with the Portuguese [Mourinho] publicly questioning his need and ambition earlier in the season.

United, who are fifth in the English Premier League points table, a point and a place behind Manchester City with four matches to play, take on Spanish side Celta Vigo in the first leg of their UEFA Europa League semi-final in Spain on Thursday.
