Paul Scholes questions Luke Shaw lifestyle

"Luke Shaw offensively was very good and made a great contribution for the team, said Mourinho".

Paul Scholes has compared Luke Shaw with former Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney after the Red Devils' Champions League victory over CSKA Moscow on Tuesday night.

"He was waiting for quite a long time, he was deserving [of his chance] for quite a long time". Shaw had waited for a long time, it is not easy to give an opportunity to a player in matches when we need results. I was not unhappy with the players at all. But he managed on for 90 minutes and really I told him this is not the best, this is just an opportunity for you to play and to improve your level.

There have been many reasons for Shaw's marginalisation at Old Trafford in recent seasons, ranging from injury misfortune and poor form.

Speaking to BT Sport, he said: "It's hard to say as we don't see what goes on behind the scenes".

Shaw's United future looks to be uncertain following the return of Marcos Rojo, Ashley Young's revival as a makeshift left-back and the transfer speculation which continues to link Spurs' Danny Rose with the Red Devils.

Speaking to BT Sport after the game, Scholes was quoted as saying: "For me, he has to play".

"I think we did that very, very well". At 22, he can still make improvements to his game, too.

The England global was handed a first start when the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager started him on the left wing-back position. With Daley Blind again proving against Moscow that he's far from the answer and Matteo Darmian also looking out of favour despite regular appearances last season, a space for Shaw can definitely be made in the coming weeks.

After the game, fans and pundits alike were left debating, why can't Shaw play that well all the time? United supporters will be hoping Tuesday's display can be a catalyst for that process beginning in earnest.
