Former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has aimed a sly dig at defender Luke Shaw after the club’s emphatic 4-0 win over Chelsea in the opening day of the 2019/20 season.
While analyzing the game for Sky Sports, Mourinho warned new acquisition Harry Maguire that he will need to cover for the Manchester United left-back in games in what was a veiled dig at Shaw.
Maguire had to cover for Shaw when the left-back was out of position on Sunday during a chance for the Blues on Sunday and Mourinho suggested that United's new £80million man will have to get used to that.
The sacked Manchester United boss had a disruptive relationship with Shaw during their time together at Old Trafford.
When describing a chance for Chelsea on Sky Sports Mourinho said: “Maguire is attracted to the outside to cover for Luke [Shaw]. He [Maguire] will learn over the season he needs to do that a lot [cover for Shaw].”
Mourinho hauled Shaw off at half-time during a victory over Brighton in 2018 with Shaw having previously said 'you need to have thick skin' to play for Mourinho.
