Man United star will ‘start playing’ after Euro 2024 group stage – Erik ten Hag

Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag has said that Luke Shaw will start playing for England once they qualify for the knockout stage of the European Championship.

The left-back had a tough season with the Red Devils. He made only 15 appearances in all competitions and was injured for the final three months of the campaign.

Despite this, the 28-year-old was able to prove his fitness to England manager Gareth Southgate and is in the 26-man squad for Euro 2024 being played in Germany.

Shaw was an unused substitute in the 1-0 win over Serbia last night. Speaking ahead of the game, Ten Hag said the £27 million-rated star will play after the group stage (via the Telegraph).

England are one of the tournament favourites, but they had a difficult start against Serbia. They lacked a cutting edge in attack and struggled to control the game after the break.

They still came on top with three points and are on course to make the round of 16 phase. The Three Lions will take on Denmark and Slovenia on June 20 and June 25.

Shaw may not be rushed back to action. Ten Hag should have a fair idea of Southgate’s stance, and the left-back could make an appearance off the bench in the last-16.
