Luke Shaw has declared himself ready for Manchester United’s first-team after returning to action for the reserves on Monday night.
The England defender, alongside Ashley Young, played 59 minutes of a 1-1 draw against Swansea’s second string at Leigh Sports Village.
Shaw hasn’t played since injuring ankle ligaments during the draw with Swansea at Old Trafford in April, but the 22-year-old says he is now ready for selection whenever Jose Mourinho wants to call upon him.
“I’m feeling really good and I only push on from here,” a smiling Shaw told MUTV.
“I’m looking for the first-team spot now, I’m going to keep pushing, and when the manager needs me I’m going to be ready. Whenever that is, I’m really looking forward to it.
I’d rather it was sooner rather than later, but I’m feeling good and whenever I’m called upon, I’m ready.
“I was very happy to get an hour tonight – it was very important for me and for Ashley to get the minutes after the rehab we’ve had. It was a very positive 60 minutes – me and Ash both feel good. I feel very good and hopefully I can push on now, keep myself fit and get stronger and stronger.”
