Man Utd defender Shaw relishing centre-back role

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw says he is loving playing at centre-back.

The England international has recently lined-up as a left-side stopper in a back-three for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

And it is a role the 24-year-old is relishing.

"To be fair, I played it a couple of times last season and it's a role that I have been enjoying," he said.

"Don't get me wrong – it's not too much different to left-back. I'm still kind of in the same position [of the pitch].

"But I'm enjoying it, and I've said before, wherever the manager wants to play, I'm happy to play and happy to be on the pitch to give my all for the team."
