Manchester United attacker Juan Mata has taken to Instagram to share a changing room selfie with Luke Shaw after the defender returned to light training this afternoon.
Shaw has been on the sidelines since suffering an horrific double leg break during United’s Champions League clash at PSV Eindhoven back in September of last year.
The left-back has progressed well during his rehabilitation and has now stepped-up his recovery programme even further after returning to light training at Carrington this afternoon.
United attacker Juan Mata took to Instagram earlier today to upload a selfie of him and Shaw in the changing room after training with a caption saying “My friend @lukeshaw23 just came in from running out on the pitch! Getting closer”.
Shaw is still going to need several weeks to build up his fitness before he’ll be available for selection so with just six weeks remaining of the season, the England international is facing a race against time to play again this campaign.
However, it’s an encouraging sign that he’s out on the training pitch and who knows, if he continues to recovery well over the coming weeks and doesn’t suffer any setbacks, then Shaw might be able to get a couple of games under his belt before the season ends on May 15th.
That would obviously give the 20-year-old’s chances of forcing his way in to Roy Hodgson’s plans for this summers European Championships a major boost, but Shaw is facing some stiff competition from the likes of Danny Rose, Ryan Bertrand and Kieran Gibbs for the left-back slot.
