Manchester United’s Luke Shaw sends message to Rory McIlroy ahead of 2014 Ryder Cup

Manchester United defender Luke Shaw wants Rory McIlroy to win the 2014 Ryder Cup for Europe.

Rory McIlroy is a Manchester United fan and he will certainly enjoy receiving a good luck message from a player of the club.

On the eve of the 2014 Ryder Cup at Gleneagles, Luke Shaw wished the world number one golfer the best of luck.

The England international defender is a clear supporter of Europe in the tournament and wants them to win it.


Shaw himself will be looking to be on the winning team this weekend when United return to Premier League action.

The Red Devils will host West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday and will be determined to bounce back from last weekend’s shock collapse.

United squandered a two-goal lead in the final 30 minutes against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium to go down 5-3.

Shaw, who joined the 20-time English champions from Southampton in the summer for a reported transfer fee of £27 million, has yet to make his debut for United.

However, given the injury problems that manager Louis van Gaal is facing at the moment (click here to read more) and Shaw’s return to fitness, it is likely that the 19-year-old will start against West Ham.

Perhaps Shaw knows that, which is why he seems so eager for Saturday.
