Man Utd defender Shaw names Inter Milan winger Moses as toughest opponent

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw says Victor Moses is the toughest opponent he's faced in football.

The winger is currently on loan at Inter Milan from Chelsea, where he played a significant role in winning the 2016/17 Premier League title.

"People always think I'm joking, but one of my hardest games ever was against Victor Moses when I was coming in as a 17-year-old at Southampton," Shaw told the club's website.

"Maybe because I was so young. He was really quick, direct, strong and that was a challenge for me.

"I've played against the likes of Gareth Bale, Messi and [Eden] Hazard, and they were all so good, but I always remember Victor Moses as a really tough opponent as well."
