PICTURE: Luke Shaw posts from hospital bed as confirms he will fly back to Manchester

Luke Shaw has given Manchester United some positive news for the start of the weekend, as he has posted on social media a picture of himself in recovery in his Eindhoven hospital and also confirmed that he will fly back to Manchester with his family on Saturday.

Shaw, 20, suffered a double right leg fracture last Tuesday night during the first-half of Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven over in the Netherlands, an injury which saw the left-back go under the knife straight away. On Friday afternoon he had a second operation to close the wounds, a operation which was deemed a success and the hospital staff have given him the all clear to fly back to Manchester, on a flight that Manchester United have chartered for Shaw and his Mum and Dad who have been with him since Tuesday.

This is a great news for Luke Shaw, being back in Manchester and the start of his recovery over the next few months. There is no doubt that a double leg fracture is going to take time to heal, that physically and mentally, but Manchester United have offered Shaw any services he needs to get over this massive ordeal.
