With 20-year old promisng left back Luke Shaw suffering a horrific leg break against PSV Eindhoven, Manchester United need to get their act together quickly and find an adequate replacement. Shaw, if reports are to be believed, could be out for atleast six months.
The following is a list of four players who can play at left-back for LVG’s United.
1. Daley Blind
The versatile Dutchman announced himself to the world in the 2014 World Cup by providing an assist to Robin Van Persie’s superb header against Spain. A month later, Blind arrived at Old Trafford from Ajax and was perhaps the best of the summer signings last year.
It may be recalled that it was Blind who was at left back during United’s brilliant run between February and April last year.
This is the best position for the Dutchman though he has started at center back in each of United’s matches in the season. In all probability, Van Gaal would repose faith in Blind to play at Left back.
