Kasper Schmeichel Was Less Than Flattering About Luke Shaw's Goal

Kasper Schmeichel Was Less Than Flattering About Luke Shaw's Goal

After enduring a fairly mixed-to-torrid spell at Manchester United thus far, Luke Shaw put in a man-of-the-match winning performance tonight for the club's opening Premier League fixture against Leicester City.

Scoring his first goal for United, it was also the former Southampton's man first professional goal full-stop.

Moving onto a wonderful pass from Juan Mata, Shaw, with a slightly fortuitous first-touch, deftly slipped the ball beyond Kasper Schmeichel to give United what was the match-winning goal.

Naturally, not everyone was as pleased for Shaw as his teammates and the home supporters. Speaking to Sky Sports post-match, the full-back revealed the message Schmeichel had for him in the immediate aftermath of tonight's game:

Schmeichel came up to me afterward and said, 'You spawny man!'

I said, 'I don't care, it went in.'

Clearly delighted with having made this breakthrough in a United shirt, Shaw revealed that this moment was arguably the most enjoyable of his career to date; despite that Schmeichel thought it was a touch on the fortunate side.

Having reportedly impressed Jose Mourinho with his pre-season determination to improve, the United manager and fans alike will be excited by the prospect of this highly-rated left-back finally delivering on his promise.
