Luke Shaw risks Mourinho wrath with Pochettino praise

Tottenham Hotspur supporters are seen at the stands during the Premier League match between Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool at Wembley Stadium

Shaw has kept his head down and impressed manager Jose Mourinho in recent weeks with his attitude to training, although the former Southampton academy graduate still found himself on the subs' bench until late in the League Cup victory over Swansea on Wednesday night.

The England International moved to United at the end of the season.

The two sides, who are separated in their table only by goal difference, face each other at Old Trafford on Saturday. "I was honest. My relationship with him is very good, we are in contact".

"He has a future here but the situation is not easy because he comes from injury after injury after injury he needs two, three, four, five or six matches in a row to play, to make mistakes, to get condition, to get match fitness and I can not give him that".

Shaw is yet to play for United in the Premier League this season, making two substitute appearances in the Carabao Cup. "I may be wrong, but I think Sanchez, Vertonghen, Eriksen, who else, Aurier, Winks, they had so many players not involved in the game or that played just a few minutes that are going to play tomorrow.so I dont think it will impact (Kane's absence)".




Despite appearing to have a lack of faith in the 22-year-old, Mourinho insisted he has a future at the club, but conceded that the "situation is not easy" due to the amount of competition at left-back. I've had lots of ups and downs, but when I was with Pochettino it was only ever up, up, up.

"I think with Southampton he achieved the impossible", he said.

You can read in my book how he is, for me, one of the best managers in the world - admired like [Pep] Guardiola. He'd show me clips of my games and say, "You could do this better".

Mourinho said on Friday he was not upset by Shaw's glowing endorsement of Pochettino, but he added it will be hard for the left-back to get the chances he needs to improve his fitness because of competition from Daley Blind, Matteo Darmian, Ashley Young and Marcos Rojo. Not I could have done better, but I should have done better, because he knows I can be better.
