PSV star responsible for horror Luke Shaw injury in hot water again

PSV Eindhoven

Hector Moreno's tackle on Luke Shaw resulted in a broken fibula and tibia for the Manchester United star but the Mexican has clearly not learned his lesson.

Despite leaving Manchester United youngster Luke Shaw with a double fracture in his right leg following a strong challenge in the Champions League, PSV Eindhoven defender Hector Moreno is evidently refusing to shy away from robust tackles of this type.

That frank assessment follows the news that the 27-year-old centre-back has been involved in yet another hefty challenge resulting in another injury for his opposite number.

Much has been made of the fact that Moreno went to visit Shaw in a hospital in Geldorp, Holland, last week following the tackle that ended the 20-year-old's season and most likely any hopes of appearing for England at Euro 2016.

The Mexico international also offered a message of support to the stricken Manchester United star via Twitter.

However, as ESPN production assistant Antonio Romero revealed on the social media site, that apology may have counted for little given the fact the Moreno continues to indulge in similarly robust tackles in the Eredivisie.

Facing off against Heracles, the Mexican was captured making a dangerous knee-high challenge on Oussama Tannane.

It was a challenge that soon saw the 21-year-old hobble off, with the prognosis unlikely to be favourable though almost certain to be less severe than the one Shaw faced.

The incident is also likely to draw ire from Manchester United fans already angry that Moreno's challenge on Shaw earlier this week went unpunished.

Whether the Dutch Football Association now decides to take action or offer guidance to PSV, Moreno and manager Phillip Cocu, however, is up for debate.
