Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has insisted defender Luke Shaw has a future at the club, despite his omission from the first team set-up in recent months and an interview claiming he wants to be reunited with his old boss Mauricio Pochettino.

Shaw has not started a Premier League game for United since April and has been restricted to appearances in the Carabao Cup this season, amid suggestions that he could be part of a swap deal involving Danny Rose.

Shaw’s quotes claiming he wants to work with his former Southampton manager Pochettino were viewed as inflammatory when they appeared in the media on Thursday, but Mourinho seemed unconcerned by the comments.

“Luke Shaw was just honest,” he stated. “The manager that helped him to come to the first, to come to the best moment of his career is a manager that do not forget he likes a lot and that maybe one day he would be reunited again so for me the perfect words that show Luke Shaw character in relation to the people that he happy with.

“He has a future here, I think he has, but the situation is not easy because he comes from injury after injury after injury. He needs two, three, four, five or six matches in a row to play, to make mistakes, to get condition, to get match fitness and I cannot give him that. In this moment I can’t give him that.

“If he was a midfield player, central midfielder player, then yes, because we only have two left backs we have so many options, so the situation is not easy.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has given a hint that he was interested in signing Tottenham’s Eric Dier, but he has insisted he ‘got the player he really wanted’ as he lured Nemanja Matic from Chelsea last summer.

Spurs boss Pochettino suggested in a recently released book that he was frustrated with Mourinho after he went out of his way to embrace Dier following Tottenham’s game at Old Trafford last December.

That came after United had made advances to sign England midfielder Dier, yet Mourinho was keen to point out that he is content with his capture of Matic ahead of the player his team are set to face on Saturday.

“I have the player that I want to have, probably I have the player I didn’t think it was possible to have but we got the player I really wanted,” declared Mourinho.
