Luke Shaw reveals players who get away with things are a thing of the past at Manchester United
Luke Shaw reveals players who ‘get away with stupid little things’ belong to THE PAST at Manchester United under Erik ten Hag… and insists players ‘can’t do what they want’ after Marcus Rashford was dropped, because he hit a pre-game
- Luke Shaw says Erik ten Hag gave Man United a sense of discipline
- The Dutchman dropped Marcus Rashford ahead of the club’s game against Wolves
- Rashford later revealed that he overslept and missed a pregame meeting
- Ten Hag previously clashed with Cristiano Ronaldo before his departure
Luke Shaw has praised Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag for bringing a sense of discipline back to the club.
Despite his goalscoring form, Marcus Rashford was not in the Dutchman’s starting XI for United’s game against Wolves on Saturday.
Ten Hag later cited “internal discipline” as justification for leaving the England international on the bench at Molineux, with Rashford coming into play in the second half before scoring in the 1-0 win.

Rashford later explained that the discipline his manager was referring to came after he was absent from the pre-game briefing.
After their win on Saturday, Shaw explained that the former Ajax manager has instilled a sense of discipline in his star-studded squad.
“With a top club like this, that’s how it has to be,” Shaw told BT Sport. “I think people can’t do what they want, and maybe that’s been part of the problem in the past when people got away with silly little things.
“The manager takes all of that into account. As you saw today, if you don’t keep the standards high, you won’t play.

Shaw also praised his international teammate’s recent performances: “I think he’s in really good shape at the moment. He’s extremely confident, very positive, very happy and it’s nice to see that.
“Everyone knows the quality he has. He’s world class and he could be one of the best in the world if he keeps going and hopefully he does.”
Rashford isn’t the first player to face sanctions for his behavior from the new United boss. Cristiano Ronaldo was dropped after refusing to appear as a late substitute in the club’s win over Spurs in October.
Ronaldo’s relationship with Ten Hag reached a breaking point after he made a series of explosive comments during a TV interview and the 37-year-old eventually left the club to join Saudi Arabia club Al Nassr earlier this week in a landmark deal .
