Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has included the legendary Wayne Rooney in his team of fives.
Shaw was the focus of Man United’s social media Q&A feature, where one of the questions wanted to know the left-back’s five-a-side selections.
The England international chose David De Gea in goal, himself, Paul Pogba and Rooney in midfield, while Marcus Rashford will lead the front line.
“It’s hard this,” Shaw said on United’s website.
“For my keeper… this is tough because I’ve played with some very good keepers. I’ve played with Deano a little bit but not too much so I can’t put him in, but he’s a brilliant keeper.
“I think Joe Hart deserves a mention because he was an unbelievable keeper. When I was away with England and played with him I was really impressed with the way he was and the keeper he was, I thought he was absolutely top notch. ‘I’m going to stick with David [De Gea] in goal and then in defence… this is really hard!
“I’ve got to put myself in and then I’ll have two in midfield – Rooney and Pogba and then one left… a striker. ‘Of course, I played with Van Persie and he was an unbelievable finisher, but I think I’m going to say, because he’s always on the left side with me and I like having him in front of me, I think I’m going to have to say Rashy,” Shaw concluded.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils’ current focus is Granada in the Europa League quarter-finals second leg, with United carrying a comfortable 2-0 lead from the first leg away.
