Manchester United have revealed that manager Jose Mourinho could be without left-back Luke Shaw, who recently suffered the concussion on international duty.
The 23-year-old has picked up a head injury during England’s 2-1 defeat to Spain last weekend after colliding with Real Madrid defender Dani Carvajal.
The former Southampton star is expected to miss at least two matches due to Football Association guidelines regarding head injuries.
But the Red Devils have revealed that the United’s player of the month for August could return earlier if they meet various criteria.
“Jose Mourinho could be without Luke Shaw, who sustained a head injury in England’s UEFA Nations League match against Spain at the weekend,” a statement read on United’s official website.
“Some reports suggest the left-back will be obliged to serve a mandatory seven-day concussion period of absence, though this has not been confirmed.”
“Shaw has enjoyed a bright start to the season for United, picking up the Goal of the Month and Player of the Month awards for his performances in August, and will be assessed by United’s medical staff before any decisions are taken.”
“After the trip to Watford, the Reds’ next fixture is away to Swiss side Young Boys in the Champions League on Wednesday.”
Shaw joined United in 2014 from Southampton as a teenager and has since made 70 appearances for the senior team.
