Manchester United defender offers advice for new signings


Manchester United defender Luke Shaw says a positive pre-season will be pivotal for the club's new signings.

The Englishman joined the Red Devils during last summer's transfer window but immediately suffered a hamstring injury that kept him on the sidelines for almost a month.

He hopes that this summer's new signings will not suffer the same faith and that they can complete pre-season with the rest of the squad.

"It's the most important time to get to know everyone and settle into the group," Shaw is quoted as saying by The Daily Star.

"The players that have come here in the past few years will say exactly the same thing and know how it feels.

"It's never easy coming to a new club but everyone here is great and really helps you.

"A positive pre-season can help you through the whole campaign, and it's something that I'm personally looking forward to.

"Going on tour and playing against some great teams is something to be excited about.

"It involves hard work for the players, but also for the coaches, who know what they need to do to get the players ready for when that first game of the season comes.

"Game time is obviously important as well, you need games to get your match fitness back up."
