While previewing England’s game against Germany in the Euro 2020 Round of 16, Jose Mourinho touched upon Luke Shaw once again and told the Times: “For me, Shaw has played well, better than in the first match, took more risks, didn’t make mistakes.
“For me, he is not a guy to take set pieces or be in the box to win a duel in the air. He is very fast and a perfect position is to stay back on corners to cope with transitions.
“But maybe Gareth needed a left foot or he did something very good in training that we didn’t see in the game. But no drama. Maybe against Germany, he takes an amazing corner, and England win from that. Fantastic. Shaw is a solid player, not making big mistakes, much more focused and concentrated.”
Moreover, Jose Mourinho has a lot to say about the Manchester United left-back in recent weeks – forcing the Englishman to indicate that he might be in the Portuguese gaffer’s head.
Meanwhile, Luke Shaw started the game against Germany on Tuesday and helped his England side advance to the quarterfinal of the Euro 2020 championship.
