Luke Shaw has insisted that sacked Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho still deserves respect for what he achieved during his two and a half years at the club
It had been reported weeks leading to Mourinho’s sacking that the club had become a toxic place, with United badly suffering on the pitch as a result.
Luke Shaw had his own fair share of problems under Jose Mourinho but the left-back insisted that he doesn’t want his now ex-manager’s achievements to be forgotten after he delivered two major trophies and the Community Shield in a period of time where Liverpool and Tottenham won nothing.
“It’s not very nice when something as big as that happens at the club, but I think we all, as players and as a team, show respect in what happened,” Shaw is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“People might be quick to forget what Jose did for United – the three trophies he won – he did a lot. One of the trophies (Europa League) was one we had not won before, and he took us to three trophies in one season,” the 23-year-old added.
“So those people need to respect him and remember what he did, not only us as a team to win those trophies but the fans as well.”
