McShane could be envy of stars

Paul McShane could be the envy of Wayne Rooney, Robin Van Persie and Juan Mata next season as his Hull City side stand on the cusp of potential European football.

Provided that Arsenal overcome Wigan Athletic as expected and the Tigers dispose of League One club Sheffield United in their respective FA Cup last four duels, McShane's club will almost certainly enter next season's Europa League, something that Manchester United look set to fall short of.

Although sidelined for the remainder of the season with an ankle injury, McShane could still take some solace from the heartbreak of missing his side's FA Cup run, should it provide him with European football next term.
