Manchester United defender Luke Shaw says that his first day of pre-season training went according to plan with no setback.

The £30 million defender is coming off a lost season at United, suffering a broken leg against PSV Eindhoven in the Champions League.

He returned to training late last season but did not play in a match and nor was he selected for Euro 2016 with England.

Shaw is aiming to re-establish himself as first choice left-back at United, and impress new manager Jose Mourinho.

He is in with a shot of featuring in their first pre-season game against Wigan Athletic next week at the DW Stadium.

Shaw had begun last season in excellent form for United, arguably their best defender, and it was a cruel blow for him to get injured as he did.

It affected United's season too, with the severity of the injury against PSV affecting the players to the point they lost the game, a result which proved critical in their early elimination from the Champions League.
