Reacting to Erik ten Hag’s decision to bench him this season, Luke Shaw told talkSPORT: “I think Ten Hag, the boss, he knows my qualities, he knows what I’m capable of and we’ve had chats.
“It’s understandable that and I even agree, the start of the season wasn’t good enough and he had to make changes and I fully accept that, I accepted it.
“The only thing I can do is train hard and wait for my opportunities, whether that’s in the cup games or the Premier League.
“Whatever I play in I just have to be ready and play at the standard I should be at.”
Tyrell Malacia appears to have established himself at left-back, having thrived in six starts for Manchester United so far.
Shaw, meanwhile, is back in training after recovering from an injury he picked earlier this season.
