Luke Shaw Reveals He Almost Lost His Leg To Football

Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has revealed he came close to losing his right leg after it was seriously broken in September 2015 and admitted he considered quitting football altogether.

Shaw has started four consecutive Premier League matches for United this season – something he had not achieved since his horrific leg-break suffered playing PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League three years ago.

Since his rehabilitation, Shaw has struggled for first-team football under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford, often facing public criticism from the United manager.

When asked about his recovery, Shaw said: “I’d be lying if I said I didn’t sometimes think about stopping playing football, but I had a lot of good friends and family around me and they helped me through it.

“I nearly lost my leg, I was actually really close to losing my leg and I never knew that until six months after when the doctor told me. Of course, if I knew that I would [still] never have stopped, even if he had told me there was a worry, I would have tried [to carry on playing football].

“I want to be playing football, I want to be playing in the biggest games possible, winning trophies – that’s my motivation, and like I said I want to be known as one of the best full-backs in the world.”
