Manchester United defender Luke Shaw again recounted how difficult Jose Mourinho’s era in the Red Devils’ managerial chair was, especially for him, where his performance at that time was not at the best level.
Meanwhile, Luke Shaw’s performance in the 2020/21 season campaign is quite consistent, where he managed to become one of the mainstays of manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the Red Devils defense line.
Thanks to this, the 25-year-old defender finally got another call from the England National Team to take part in the international break starting next week.
In short, Luke Shaw’s current performance is much better than his performance in previous seasons, especially when Manchester United was still handled by Jose Mourinho.
When talking about it, Shaw himself doesn’t mean to complain about the style of play that The Special One adopted a few years ago at Manchester United, but he cannot deny that it was a difficult time for him.
What is going on, as far as Shaw understands he lacks confidence so it has a huge impact on his performance on the pitch.
“I don’t want to look like a kid who can’t handle pressure, because playing at a club as big as Manchester United means you will always be under pressure and under the spotlight,”
“However, at that time [in the Mourinho era] I had no confidence. I lost my faith. And I think that’s what changed with Ole.” Shaw told Sky Sports.
For that reason too, Shaw does not feel that there is anything different from his playing style in the era of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, he just feels more confident and enjoys playing on the pitch.
“He trained me properly and I was able to find my confidence back, right now I’m really enjoying my game,”
“Enjoyment and confidence, for me those are two things you need on the pitch. You need confidence to give the best performance at a high level. I feel I have that now,” he concluded.
