Manchester United’s manager thinks only of reaching the Europa League last 16 before his attention will turn to Sunday’s League Cup final with Southampton
José Mourinho’s control at Manchester United was illustrated in his stark declaration that Luke Shaw is not currently good enough to merit a squad place for Wednesday’s Europa League game at St-Étienne which, it should be remembered, is practically dead as a contest.
Shaw has been dropped for the past five outings and failed to be a replacement in four of those. Wednesday night’s last-32 second leg with Christophe Galtier’s side will stretch this unwanted statistic to five. Mourinho left the defender behind in Manchester despite United holding a 3-0 advantage over St-Étienne and the manager also decided that Matteo Darmian, who can operate at left-back as well, was not required to travel either.
