Manchester United have confirmed that Luke Shaw underwent surgery on his injury in Eindhoven on Tuesday night.

Shaw suffered a double fracture in his right leg during the 2-1 defeat against PSV Eindhoven.

It was initially thought that the youngster would undergo an operation on his return to Manchester but he ended up having the procedure in Holland.

A club statement read: “Luke Shaw underwent surgery on his injury on Tuesday night and will remain in hospital in Eindhoven to continue his early recovery.

“Manchester United are grateful for the excellent care he is receiving and would like to thank everyone who has sent messages of support. A further update will be provided in due course.”

Meanwhile, The Times’ James Ducker revealed Man United are optimistic that the injury won’t keep Shaw out for too long:

The result against PSV almost became irrelevant once Shaw left the pitch on a stretcher while receiving oxygen.

One of United’s standout players so far this season, the news of his injury came as a bitter blow to supporters. Thankfully, Shaw has age on his side and he should be able to recover. Whether or not he plays for United again this season remains to be seen.
