Leg-break footage no longer bothers Man Utd defender Shaw

Luke Shaw says any footage of his horror leg break no longer holds any fears for him.

The Manchester United defender sustained a horrific double leg break in a Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven in September last year.

The 21-year-old is now back to full fitness and enjoying some strong form for United and insists the thought of the incident is not an issue any more.

"At one point I didn't like looking at it but now it does not bother me," he said.

"Obviously, I went through a bad time but I came through stronger as a person. Now it does not faze me — though my mum and dad hate it.

"I don't like to see other players get similar injuries as I know what they're going through, but I'm not squeamish to look at it."
