Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier cannot understand Jose Mourinho’s treatment of Luke Shaw and believes the Manchester United boss is “destroying” the left-back.
Shaw has struggled for regular first-team football at Old Trafford and has played second fiddle to Ashley Young for much of the 2017-18 campaign.
A disappointing season was compounded on Sunday when he was taken off at half-time of the win over Brighton, with Mourinho revealing his opinion that Shaw does not have the required personality to succeed as a Manchester United player.
Le Tissier also tipped Shaw to join Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham, with Danny Rose potentially heading in the opposite direction.
He added: “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.
“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.”
And the Saints legend believes that the 22-year-old has struggled to recover from the broken leg he suffered against PSV back in 2015, but feels Mourinho should be doing more to help get the player back to somewhere near his best.
