Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer identifies Luke Shaw concern for Club Brugge

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified a concern for Luke Shaw in the Club Brugge team.

The Red Devils take on the Belgian side in their Europa League round-of-32 second leg.

Solskjaer’s side drew the first leg 1-1 but got back to winning ways with a 3-0 crushing of Watford.

And one man who had a big part to play was Shaw, who has played all 90 minutes for the last four games in a United shirt.

But the boss has revealed a concern about the Englishman at Old Trafford in Europe.

Speaking in the pre-match press conference, Solskjaer said: “We need to play against 11 players, so it might change.

“If [Ruud] Vormer and [Emmanuel Bonaventure] Dennis are injured it does something to them.

“I know Krépin Diatta is back in, he is the most exciting player.

“He is fit I understand, he might be a handful for Luke.”

The Senegalese midfielder has scored seven goals and made four assists in all competitions this season.

And Solskjaer went to compare the Brugge star to a Liverpool star.

“He tries things,” the United boss added.

“He has got the X-factor, fantastic pace and balance. He is similar to Sadio Mane.”

Shaw, though, is feeling confident about coming up against the Brugge goal-scorer.

He said: “I think I’m still quite young and I’ve got a lot to improve on.

“I want to improve as a player day in day out and keep working hard.

“I don’t need to pay too much attention to what people say in the media, it’s sometimes good and sometimes bad. So I’ve got to focus on myself and the people that matter.

“I’m feeling really good and can’t wait to get back out on the pitch.

I’ve had a lot of stick and if you come to Manchester United you need to take that and people are always ready to criticise you.

“There’s only high standards here, so we need to be strong, but we need to be on that pitch when it matters and give it everything we’ve got.”

Solskajer also gave a worrying update about “knocks” in training.
