    Manchester United defender Luke Shaw can be “one of the best in the world”, says team-mate Ashley Young.

    Shaw, 22, was publicly criticised by manager Jose Mourinho after he was substituted during Saturday’s 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton.

    Young, 32, has been Mourinho’s first-choice left-back for much of the season and – unlike Shaw – was named in the England squad for their friendlies against the Netherlands and Italy.

    “He’s a fantastic player,” said Young.

    Shaw, who joined United from Southampton for £27m in 2014, is under contract until June 2019 but could leave Old Trafford this summer.

    Mourinho has criticised Shaw repeatedly in the past, and publicly questioned the defender’s approach to training and his commitment to the club last April.

    Shaw, who has seven international caps, has not played for England since March 2017.

    “I want to see Luke do well,” said Young. “He just has to get his head down and work.”
