Mourinho: Shaw is playing better and better and better at Euro 2020

The Manchester United left-back was voted as the Three Lions’ man of the match in a fan poll after providing two assists in the 4-0 quarter-final victory in Rome.

Shaw appears to have cemented his place as Gareth Southgate’s first-choice left-back at these finals, a fitting reward for an impressive season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at United.

Shaw hits back at former Man Utd boss Mourinho in scathing criticism: Clearly I’m in his head

The former Southampton man has enjoyed arguably the strongest 18 months of his career, a far cry from a difficult spell when Mourinho was in charge at Old Trafford, when the Portuguese would often single out Shaw for criticism.

Mourinho took aim at Shaw again after England’s group-stage win over the Czech Republic, claiming his delivery from corners was “dramatically bad”. That prompted a response from the player, who accused his old boss of having a “strange” personal agenda, adding: “Clearly, I’m in his head.”

However, Mourinho appeared far more impressed with Shaw’s display in the Italian capital on Saturday (July 3), saying the form of England’s defenders means Southgate should resist any temptation to revert to a back three for the semi-final against Denmark.

Three assists, eight chances created – Shaw improving every game, says Southgate

“The question is, do England need to play with a back three like they did against Germany? My view is no,” he told talkSPORT.

“The back four is really, really solid. Luke Shaw is playing better and better and better. Kyle Walker is having an amazing tournament.

“The two centre-backs are very solid and the back four with the amazing Euros that both central midfielders are doing is more than enough to control Denmark offensively. Then, you have four players to decide the creativity of the game. It is there that Gareth may have some doubts.

“Walker, [Harry] Maguire, [John] Stones and Shaw is clear. [Kalvin] Phillips and [Declan] Rice is clear. [Raheem] Sterling and [Harry] Kane is clear and there are two places that in my opinion are open and two positions where the options are different.

“[Jadon] Sancho played well, [Phil] Foden started the tournament, the same with [Mason] Mount, while [Jack] Grealish looks like he’s not the favourite player of Gareth but, every minute he’s on the pitch, he does well. There are lots of options for these two places.

“I believe playing at Wembley, England will be solid as always but you have to try and win the match as soon as they can and I don’t believe that they need to play with a back three like they did against Germany.”
