United defender Shaw out for six months after horrific injury

  • Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has revealed that defender Luke Shaw was in tears after suffering a broken leg against Dutch football club PSV Eindhoven that will keep him out for at least six months.

    PSV Eindhoven beat United 2-1 in the first match of the Champions League group stages here on Tuesday. A tackle by PSV defender Hector Moreno left the 20-year-old England international with a double fracture in his right leg.

    Shaw was given oxygen and treated by nine medical staff during the nine-minute stoppage here before he was taken off on a stretcher carefully placed on a trolley and taken to hospital. He will return to Manchester on Wednesday or Thursday for an operation. (Source: IANS)
