Luke Shaw names three players when asked who is the fastest at United

Manchester United's young left-back has been speaking about the speediest players at the club.

Manchester United full-back Luke Shaw has been talking to the club’s official website about who he thinks is the fastest player at Old Trafford.

These kind of debates rage on among players and fans alike, and the 19-year-old did not give a categorical answer when asked who he thought was the speediest star at the club.

When asked to nominate, Shaw said, “Antonio Valencia, maybe. I think it’s me, Antonio or Angel Di Maria.”

Shaw gave a masterclass in full-back play in the recent Premier League clash with Chelsea, and although he finished the game on the losing side the teenager proved United had done some savvy business in recruiting him last summer.

He may not have had the season many were expecting following his £31million move from Southampton, featuring just 20 times to date, but he has shown glimpses of the player he looks destined to become.

It is worth remembering that he is still only a teenager, and once he has a full season under his belt there is no reason why he cannot become United’s regular – and highly-effective – left-back; and a pretty speedy one by his own admission.
