Jose Mourinho Praises Luke Shaw Amid Lifestyle Questions from Paul Scholes

Luke Shaw and Marcus Rashford

GETTY Man Utd came from behind to beat CSKA Moscow tonight

Left-back Shaw made only his third appearance of the campaign in United's 2-1 win over CSKA Moscow after the £27 million man has found himself cast to the fringes this season.

United will visit high flying city rivals, Manchester City in the Premier League on Sunday.

The 22-year-old has fallen out of favour with manager Jose Mourinho and has been struggling with injuries in recent years.

"And he's going to get more because the performance was really positive". "He created a lot of danger and created a lot of unsafe situations".

Shaw has been a peripheral figure at Old Trafford this season but got his chance to impress in what was effectively a meaningless game for the Red Devils.

"We thought about not playing two consecutive matches, but it happened because no [Phil] Jones and no [Eric] Bailly and we had to play two consecutive matches in two games against Watford and Arsenal".

"If he can score his goal and then feel that happiness that the strikers only feel when they score goals, then great - but his contribution for the team is fantastic".

Silas took over as Clifford's lead assistant upon Patrick Ewing being hired as head coach at Georgetown last season. Silas joined the Hornets as a scout in 1999 when his father, Paul, was head coach.

"I was satisfied with his performance".

"Of course, to score a goal in the Champions League makes me feel happy for him".

"I hope there is a future for him".

"The team in the second half, they showed the desire of not qualifying with a defeat, we could lose four or five nil and qualify but that was not the objective - the objective was to play well and win and we managed both". "The performance was good, the attitude was good".

"I am not the luckiest guy with draws, so it's better for me to shut up and forget it". I have to focus on the English competitions.

Lukaku scored a goal borne of his strongest qualities following a fine early ball into the box from Paul Pogba.

Nonetheless, Wright believes that Shaw would be a good addition to the Spurs team if United decide to sell by saying, "He would be a good addition".
