‘Everyone Was Going Crazy’ Manchester United Defender Reveals Dressing Room Rage v Liverpool

Luke Shaw has come out and admitted that ‘everyone was going crazy’ in the Manchester United dressing room at halftime after a difficult first-half against Liverpool at Old Trafford. United went in with the scores level at 0-0 but had been under pressure in the first half, with the visitors dominating possession.

The English left-back told The Independent:

“We were all very disappointed with how the first half went, we didn’t play well at all.

We gave too many balls away too cheaply and luckily that didn’t cost us. But we had a change of formation, we had a good chat at half-time. Everyone was going crazy.

“We said: ‘Relax and we just need to play our game’. I think second half was better,”

“We still weren’t at our best but overall I think we created the best chances and I feel we should have won.”

United came out in the second half and managed to impose themselves on the game a bit more, even though they could not find that all important breakthrough goal.

The first-half was littered with injuries, with United having to use all three of their substitutes in the first 45 minutes. Marcus Rashford was forced to play the full 90 minutes despite picking up a knock, due to the injury crisis.

“It’s very strange feeling. I don’t know if it has ever happened before in a game,” Shaw said.

“But, look, we’re professional footballers so we need to be able to deal with that and adapt to whatever is thrown at us on the pitch.

“Of course it’s not easy, especially the players we lost. It’s quite hard to take. We had two injuries during the week as well that sort of changed the team.

“But, no, we kept focused, we did our job, everyone played brilliantly I thought, especially defensively as a team.

“To keep Liverpool so quiet overall is a very good job by us but, like I say, we were unlucky not to score.”
