Manchester United defender, Luke Shaw has come out to say that he regrets paying less attention to Gareth Southgate and the England national team in the past. Shaw recently revealed that he now understands the gravity of representing his country.
According to him, he can’t stop thinking about the many mistakes he made with the team, and this resulted in letting Gareth Southgate down severally.
Luke added that he now knows that playing for the country is a massive privilege and an honour, so he’ll never take it for granted henceforth.
His words, “I’ve a few massive regrets and I couldn’t stop thinking of the mistakes that I made in the past, especially with England,”
“I pulled out of a lot of camps.”
“Around that time, I was maybe not in the best condition but I think over the last two years I’ve thought about it so much – that was my biggest regret.”
“And yeah, of course, letting Gareth [Southgate] down. I tried to keep in touch with him just to let him know that things had changed.”
“He’s said he’s picked me on merit and how I’ve been performing.”
“The past is the past and hopefully we’ve forgotten about that now and can just focus on the future and I want to keep impressing him.”
“I think playing for your country is a massive privilege and an honour and I think at times I took advantage of that.”
“I didn’t really think about it too much but of course now I just want to forget the mistakes I’ve made in the past and Gareth’s done that so we’re just focusing on the future and obviously what’s happening now.”
