Man Utd defender ​Shaw loves facing Martial in training: I'm coming for you!

Manchester United star Luke Shaw admits that he is lucky to train with so many star attackers.

The Red Devils defender was enjoying a positive return to action before the league was suspended due to COVID-19.

And Shaw credits his improvement in defending with having to face so many great attackers, such as Anthony Martial.

"I wouldn't say 'fear' is the right word because I enjoy playing against the likes of Rashy [Marcus Rashford] and Martial," Shaw told Man United's official website.

"They're tricky, high-quality players and I like that challenge of facing them.

"Every time I'm facing Anthony, I like to have a little joke around with him, talk to him a lot and tell him: 'I'm coming for you.'"

Shaw went on to praise teammate Paul Pogba as one of his toughest opponents in training.
