Shaw ‘not fit enough’, says van Gaal

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has placed new signing Luke Shaw on an individual fitness regime after deciding the 19-year-old is not yet fit enough to play in his side, the Daily Telegraph.

Shaw was signed from Southampton in June for a fee of £27m, having impressed in the left-back slot at the St. Mary’s Stadium and played in all 38 of their Premier League matches last season. The deal was completed while van Gaal was at the World Cup, leading the Dutch national team.


Van Gaal has decided that Shaw is fit enough to play in pre-season matches, with the club currently on tour in the United States, but has asked fitness coach Tony Strudwick to help improve the youngster’s physical condition.


Explaining his decision, van Gaal said: “Shaw is ok, but I am always a trainer-coach who sees individuals and what they need. He needs to be fit and is not very fit or fit enough to do what I want. He needs to train individually until he is fit. I cannot judge how long that will take, but I see what I see.


“I have spoken with him and we have made a programme for him. He agreed with me. How long (will he be on the programme)? That we have to see, but that I don’t know. I have heard good messages from Strud (Tony Strudwick), but we have to see.”
