Matt Le Tissier reckons it is “inevitable” Luke Shaw will leave Manchester United this summer with Jose Mourinho “destroying” the left back.
Left back Shaw and boss Mourinho’s relationship at Old Trafford has hit a boiling point after the Portuguese substituted his star at half time during United’s 2-0 FA Cup victory over Brighton.
Mourinho explained the his latest run-in with shaw by saying” “Luke, in the first half, every time they came in his corridor, the cross came in and a dangerous situation was coming.
“I was not happy with his performance.”
The bust up is the latest in a long-line of barbs aimed at the England international, who has only managed 15 appearances this season.
And Le Tissier, who followed Shaw’s development at Southampton, thinks getting away from Mourinho could be the best way to salvage his career.
“I think if Mourinho is still there then it is inevitable Shaw will leave this summer. I have no idea what he is trying to achieve,” Le Tissier told Sky Sports.
“There is just a really strange relationship going on there and I don’t understand what he’s doing because he’s just destroying the player at the moment.
“I’m not sure if it was anything to do with him choosing Manchester United over Chelsea despite being a Chelsea fan when Mourinho was manager at the time.
“You also don’t know what happens at training or how he lives his life to give an accurate assessment but, while there are players that this sort of approach can work with, I just don’t think Shaw is one of them.”
Le Tissier has also backed Shaw to join Tottenham and team up with former mentor Mauricio Pochettino, with Danny Rose switching places.
“Having worked with Pochettino before and spoken highly of him, it would seem obvious for him to go to Tottenham with Danny Rose potentially going the opposite way as he is obviously desperate to get back up north,” Le Tissier said.
“I don’t think Southampton could compete in the wages department and the player would probably look at it as a backward move, so he would probably think he is worthy of playing for a club competing for the Premier League title.”
