Luke Shaw takes to Twitter to wish Kurt Zouma a quick recovery
The Manchester United man suffered a long-term injury himself and wished Zouma the best of luck for the recovery process.
Luke Shaw becomes one of the many to tweet his concerns and hopes for fast recovery for the injured Chelsea-man, Kurt Zouma. The big Frenchman's injured occurred during the match between Chelsea and Manchester United.
Shaw is one of the few who can clearly understand the situation of the French international, having suffered a similar injury in a Champions League match in the year 2015. However, where Shaw's injury was due to poor decisions by an opposition player, Zouma's was pure bad luck and an awkward landing.

Chelsea boss, Guus Hiddink, confirmed later in the post-match press conference that the injury was serious and that it was likely to sideline the former St Etienne man for a while. “Let's see, it's a hyperextension and that's always bad," he said.
"I had this problem once and it hurts very much, but let's hope and see tomorrow. I'm not a doctor, so let's see what the MRIs will show.”
As grueling as the injury was, Zouma's painful screams were caught by the pitch-side microphones shortly after he hit the ground, which in itself signaled the extent of the injury. Physiotherapists and medics rushed on the field to comfort the Frenchman before he was stretchered off the field to a standing ovation.
