Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has undergone a second operation for his broken leg in Holland and could return to England this weekend
Luke Shaw who has suffered a double fracture on his leg in United’s 2-1 Champions League loss at PSV Eindhoven is set to undergo a second operation for his broken leg.
He was carried off on a stretcher after Hector Moreno’s tackle with an oxygen mask strapped to his face in the first half of the Champions League on Tuesday night. The 20-year-old had surgery immediately after the match at the St Anna Hospital in Geldrop and Manchester United confirmed on Wednesday that he would remain in the Netherlands to continue his recovery.
Staff at St Anna Hospital will now monitor his progress while coordinating with Manchester United’s medical team to decide on when Shaw will be transferred back to the UK.
Although Shaw is undergoing surgery yet Manager Louis van Gaal had suggested earlier on Friday that Shaw could return to England on Saturday to continue his recovery.
“His family is there, we have sent people with him and he will come back when he is prepared. Maybe tomorrow,” the United manager said.
“I called him last night; he sounds very strong, which was amazing for me – a big surprise.
“It is a good signal, but he knows he has long way to go and it is not easy. He will have a long period of rehabilitation and he has a long way to go.”
