Carragher says Manchester United's Luke Shaw's injury the worst moment of the season

Luke Shaw

Jamie Carragher has underlined his disappointment at Luke Shaw getting injured.

Jamie Carragher has told The Mail that the injury to Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw was the most disappointing moment of the 2015/16 season so far.

The Premier League resumes this weekend after eight games, but it is unlikely the former Southampton ace will play again this campaign as he recovers from a double leg fracture.

Shaw was injured in a tackle in United's opening Champions League game against PSV Eindhoven, a game they went on to lose 2-1.

Asked to pick his worst moment of the campaign to date, Carragher said: "Luke Shaw’s horrific injury in Eindhoven when he was looking like one of the best players in the league."

He also added that the best moment was, "Louis van Gaal giving a rendition of ‘Louis van Gaal’s Red Army’ at one of his press conferences. He is never dull in front of the camera but that had me in stitches."

Careful Jamie... you almost sound like a Manchester United fan.

He may have been deliberately avoiding further discussion on his former club Liverpool, but it is interesting the retired centre-back did not note Jurgen Klopp's arrival as the best moment this campaign, nor was there any mention of Brendan Rodgers.

Shaw's injury was particularly cruel, as Carragher points out, given the outstanding form he was in. United's defence was torn apart by Arsenal a fortnight ago, and it's fair to wonder whether the Gunners would have had the same success had Shaw been in the side that day.
