The Englishman does have nerves of steel. Few players could endure the humiliation subjected to him by Jose Mourinho and still make a jubilant return to the first team. It is this relentless desire, this human spirit shown by Luke Shaw that highlights him as an ideal player for Manchester United to build a team around. But the English fullback is not just a player with the right attitude, he has loads of qualities and this season, he has broken the shackles to finally show what he is made of.

The first person he proved wrong was Mourinho, who apparently wanted a new left back in the summer. Luke Shaw has been consistent and strong this season and he has been United's best player by a few miles so far. His performance on both parts of the pitch has been commendable and he looks as comfortable going forward as he is defending. Even though he is still young and will only improve, Luke Shaw is already world class and by signing a new contract with Manchester United, looks set to rule that left back position for years to come.

With a better set of defensive partners, Shaw will turn into a lethal full back who has the ability to take United forward in the coming years. His mental strength makes the deal even sweeter.
