Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw has admitted he didn’t enjoy his holiday after watching Chelsea win the Europa League by beating Arsenal 4-1 and Liverpool win the Champions League by beating Tottenham 2-0.
Manchester United suffered a disappointing end of the season, drawing with Huddersfield and losing to Cardiff in their last game of the season at Old Trafford, to finish sixth in the Premier League.
“Last season was so hurtful for everyone,” Shaw said.
“I know the fans were really hurt, but we as a team were very hurt. It was really tough for all of us to take and you couldn’t really enjoy your holidays.
“You see the Champions League final and the Europa League final and they’re all English teams. It makes you feel even worse — especially the way the finals went. None of us want that to happen again.
“I think that’s why we’ve all come back again with a different mindset and, of course, we had that break to clear our minds. But now we’re all focused on getting United back to where they belong and not letting the teams we’ve seen in the finals have it that easy.”
Our first game of the new season will be against Manchester United at Old Trafford.
