Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger training separately ahead of FC Rostov

by Sam Peoples

Luke Shaw and Bastian Schweinsteiger trained separately away from the main group ahead of FC Rostov leading to concerns over their fitness.

Shaw and Schweinsteiger both haven’t featured much for Manchester United but fans are eager to see Shaw becoming our first choice left-back with Matteo Darmian, Daley Blind and Marcos Rojo failing to impress in that position.

With the duo training on their own, it is more than likely they won’t start against Rostov and may not feature in the match day squad at all.


It’s been a real tough season for Shaw and Schweinsteiger in their own right. With Shaw, he’s had to contend with the rehabilitation after breaking his leg last year and Schweinsteiger had to work his socks off to come in from the cold after being frozen out by Mourinho. They’ve stuck at it and chances have come, albeit small ones rarely, and more might be on the horizon.

Shaw is getting the tough treatment from Mourinho much like Anthony Martial and Henrikh Mkhitaryan did and we’re all hoping he’ll follow in their footsteps to re-establish himself in United’s first-team where he belongs.
