PSV’S SUPPORTERS HAVEN’T forgotten about Luke Shaw’s double leg break in Eindhoven in September.

The left-back faces a lengthy period of rehabilitation after suffering the injury in a challenge from PSV’s Héctor Moreno in Manchester United’s 2-1 defeat.

In a gesture of goodwill, that has been warmly received, the official fan club of the Dutch champions will display a banner at Old Trafford tonight wishing the 20-year-old a speedy recovery.

Shaw has been given the evening off by manager Louis van Gaal, United players are usually required to attend all matches, as it was feared that it may be a difficult occasion for the England international.

“I think Luke is recovering very well but you never know with an injury like that,” van Gaal said.

“One bad week can be all it takes to put you months behind schedule. I think he is dealing with the situation well but now he has become a little bit fed up with the daily routine, so because of that, and also because of the PSV game, I gave him four days off.”
