Manchester United defender, Luke Shaw has come out to say that he had given up hope of returning to the England squad before his recent call-up. He recently revealed that he surely made several mistakes with the national team in the past, and he is very sorry for them.
According to him, he battled family and girlfriend issues in the past, and this made him stray away from the path his career was taking him.
Shaw added that he is very delighted to be back with the team and he is looking forward to proving his worth to Gareth Southgate.
His words, “Yeah, I think so. At times, I made bad mistakes, pulling out of squads maybe at times when I shouldn’t have. That was down to me.”
“Of course, back then, I was going through bad times. Especially my family and my girlfriend, they thought that it was done.”
“At the start of the season I had ambitions and sat down with my girlfriend and said that I wanted to get back in the England squad, doing everything I can to be back there. You know, of course with my form, I thought there was a bigger chance than ever that I could be back in it.”
“Gladly, Gareth’s given me another opportunity to be involved in there, so I’m just really happy and honoured to be selected again. Hopefully I can show Gareth why I deserve a spot in the squad.”
