Luke Shaw Hits Back At Mourinho For Criticism

Jose Mourinho criticised Luke Shaw for his poor spot kicks for England in the 2020 Euros.

After England’s win over the Czech Republic, Mourinho told talkSPORT, “The negative thing I would say is once more they were very poor on attacking corners.

“The service was dramatically bad. They have so many good players to attack corners. The crosses are not passing the first man.

“Luke Shaw, in my opinion, very good tonight but very poor on the corner. [Kalvin] Phillips, the same. England has great power at this level and going to knockouts, one corner can decide a game.”

But Luke Shaw was having none of it. He hit back at the former United boss for constantly taking digs at him.

Shaw said: “I don’t understand it. I don’t know why he is still going on and wanting to point at me.

“I don’t feel like the set-pieces were as bad as he was saying. I might have done one in the second half, a corner, that didn’t get over the first man. But that was one out of three. The other two or three, I don’t think, were as ‘dramatically bad’ as he says.

“Look, he has got to do his job. I’m used to him saying negative stuff about me, so I just pass it by.

“His voice is obviously very big. He likes to talk a lot about me, as everyone has seen recently. But his voice is his own. He can say what he wants, I will focus on myself. I take set-pieces at United, so it wasn’t as if it was something I wasn’t ready for.”
