Van Gaal sets Shaw playing target

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has confirmed hopes of Luke Shaw playing again this season.

Van Gaal is also hopeful of taking his side to the Europa League final, if his comments on left-back Shaw are anything to go by.

Shaw suffered a double leg break in the Champions League game at PSV Eindhoven in September but has been included in United’s squad for the Europa League in the second half of the season.

“He could play in the final, eh?” replied van Gaal when asked by MUTV if it is possible Shaw could feature in the Europa League by the end of the season.”

“Maybe you don’t think that but it’s still possible that Shaw could play in that final. I have said that to him.”

“You never know. Still, it is halfway [through the recovery]. It can slow down, his rehabilitation, so we have to wait and see.”
