Injury-stricken Manchester United youngster visited in hospital by Hector Moreno

PSV Eindhoven defender Hector Moreno has been to visit Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw in hospital, Sun Sport reports.

The Mexican international’s challenge during the Champions League meeting at the Philips Stadion on Tuesday night left the youngster with a broken leg and is now set to miss the majority of the season.

Shaw has since remained in Holland and underwent surgery on his double leg fracture and will have a second operation on Friday, but was visited by PSV manager Phillip Cocu as well as Moreno, who has come in for stinging criticism from some sections from the media following his tackle.

United manager Louis van Gaal was extremely upset with the challenge when speaking during his post-match press conference immediately after the game and former Premier League referee Graham Poll was adamant that Moreno was lucky to stay on the pitch.

However, Red Devils legend Roy Keane defended the challenge when speaking to ITV during the week and said Moreno didn’t intend to injure Shaw.

The injury comes as a huge setback for Shaw, who had begun the season in fine form for both club and the England national team and now it appears his participation at next summer’s European Championships are in serious doubt.
