Jose Mourinho has told out-of-favour defender Luke Shaw he can still have a future at Manchester United, reports the Daily Star.
The former Southampton defender has failed to cement his position in the United first-team and was left out of Saturday’s squad against Watford.
Despite not playing the 21-year-old, Mourinho insists Shaw has a future at Old Trafford.
“He has to work and wait,” the United boss said. “AgainstWatfordI wanted one defender on the bench and the defender is someone who can play in more than one position.
“(Matteo) Darmian can play left-back, right-back and an emergency central defender for us so my choice was Darmian.
“The only thing I can say is that Luke is working well. He doesn’t have any problem and he is working well. He is fighting hard. There is no problem with him. He is fighting hard.”
