Solskjaer lifting Shaw after cup woe

21st March 2019, 08:30 by Craig Smithson

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been attempting to give Luke Shaw a lift after the FA Cup quarter-final loss at Wolves.

Last weekend's 2-1 defeat at Molineux means the Red Devils won't be enjoying any domestic silverware this season, although they do have a Champions League quarter-final showdown next month with Barcelona to look forward to.

Old Trafford insiders, however, have stated Shaw took the FA Cup exit particularly badly and felt United's defence were culpable.

It's understood Solskjaer spent some time after the final whistle with the left-back and he was seen trying to put an arm around the player.

Shaw has formed a decent bond with the Norwegian and recently called for United execs to make the 46-year-old's caretaker role a permanent one, having turned the ship around since his arrival in late December.

The 23-year-old has featured in United's last 10 games but pulled out of the England squad this week with an injury, ahead of the Euro 2020 qualifiers against Czech Republic and Montenegro.
