Jose Mourinho says Luke Shaw is “free to play” for Manchester United this weekend despite suggestions that concussion protocol would keep him on the sidelines for the trip to Watford.
United will be without Marcus Rashford, who stole the headlines at Mourinho’s pre-match press conference, but Shaw could be involved despite being concussed in England’s Nations League defeat to Spain last Saturday.
“I don’t know, we still have a training session,” Mourinho said of the left-back’s availability.
“Contrary to some news, to some opinions, by the protocol point of view and according to our doctor, he will be free to play.
“The only situation we have to analyse is if you are going to play him when during the week he was not training with the team or if, even so, we decide to play him.”
