Luke Shaw offered psychologist by Manchester United

Luke Shaw has been offered a psychologist by Manchester United as he prepares for a huge physical and mental road to recovery after the 20-year-old suffered a double leg fracture in Tuesday’s 2-1 UEFA Champions League defeat to PSV Eindhoven.

Shaw is due to have a second surgery on his right leg on Friday afternoon, before hopefully returning to Manchester if fit enough over the weekend.

When back in Manchester, Louis van Gaal and Manchester United have sought to help his mental state by offering to draft in a professional during his rehabilitation both mentally and physically.

A club source told the Daily Star:

“Part of the recovery process will involve the player dealing with his mental demons and the bad memories of what happened to him that night.

“A psychologist will be made available to him if needed, to talk him through it all and help his chances of being mentally ready to return to the game.”
