Luke Shaw says he will “fight to the last second” to save his Manchester United career in the wake of Jose Mourinho’s latest appraisal.
Shaw, left out altogether for the weekend draw against West Brom, came off the bench against Everton on Tuesday and forced the penalty which earned United a late point.
Mourinho has criticised Shaw more than once this season, claiming at the weekend the left-back was “a long way behind” his team-mates in commitment and focus.
The United boss acknowledged an improvement in Shaw’s midweek contribution but said he “made every decision” for the 21-year-old from the touchline.
Reacting to a turbulent few days, Shaw said: “I am loving it here at United, the fans are incredible and have been incredible the last couple of days for obviously what has been going on.
“But I am keeping my head up and I am going to fight to the last. I am not going to give up. I love this club and I will give everything to be here.
“Obviously with the stuff that has been going on it is hard for me to take because deep down that is not me as a person. Like Jose said, he wants to see me fighting – and I will fight to the last second because I want to be here for the club.
“I want to play for the manager and I want to help this team get back to the top.”
