​Man Utd left-back Shaw: Mourinho never wanted me sold

Manchester United left back Luke Shaw says that Jose Mourinho never wanted him sold this summer.

Many rumours suggested that Mourinho wanted Shaw to leave the club, with vice-chairman Ed Woodward blocking any sale.

However, Shaw said in a press conference with the England national team that his manager had full faith in him.

Shaw said: "He [Mourinho] put his trust in me at the start of the season. I think at times if he didn't trust me it would've been easy for him to say he wanted to sell me.

"I think he always believed in me and I always believed in myself and just needed to get back to what I needed to do. He's played a big part but I've done a lot too to get back into his team and earn his trust back."
