Luke Shaw at risk of missing the rest of Man Utd’s season

Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw is potentially a doubt to play again this season following recent surgery to remove metal screws from his leg.

Shaw had the screws inserted when the leg was operated on following the career threatening break he suffered during a Champions League match against PSV Eindhoven back in September 2015.

United boss Ralf Rangnick confirmed last week that the player was ‘having problems’ with that area. Shaw subsequently went under the knife last weekend to fix the problem and was originally expected to miss up to three weeks while he recovered.

But fresh suggestions are that it is expected to take more time, putting a doubt on whether he returns before the end of the season, which is now only a little over a month away.

The Daily Telegraph has reported that Shaw has now been ‘ruled out longer’ following an assessment of the surgical procedure. No fresh time-frame has been put on his return, leaving it open-ended given how close the season is to its conclusion.
