Bayern left-back Davies admits Man Utd star is ‘better’ than him
Bayern Munich full-back Alphonso Davies has admitted that Man Utd defender Luke Shaw is ‘clear’ of himself, meaning that he thinks he is clearly better than him.
Shaw enjoyed a splendid 12 months, by far the best of his career. He was a standout for Man Utd as they finished runners-up to Manchester City in the Premier League, runners-up to Villarreal in the UEFA Europa League, and runner-up at UEFA EURO 2020 with England.
Davies on the other hand endured a slightly less colourful season as he struggled for a first-team place ahead of Lucas Hernandez. In the year prior, Davies enjoyed a mainstay role in the Bayern Munich treble-winning side as well as a spot in the UEFA Team Of The Year squad.
Five reasons for Spurs to be cheerful – even if *he* leaves
Davies was full of praise for the Man Utd and England man. Davies said on his official TikTok account:
“I just saw one that was like ‘Luke Shaw is clear’. What does that mean? Someone explain to me. I never really understood that – clear of what?”
He then read out a reply in the chat: “That means he’s better.
“Ohhh! Ohh, OK, I get it now, it means he’s better. Yeah, I mean, he is, he’s a really good player!
“Alright, so every time you say like ‘Luke Shaw is clear, Robbo [Liverpool left-back Andy Robertson] is clear, that means he’s better’. OK, makes sense, makes sense.”
Shaw is finally living up to the £30m price tag the Red Devils paid for the 26-year-old back in 2014. He saw a relatively established name around Europe in Alex Telles come in to which he took this as a challenge and beat it in convincing style.
Telles seems to be already ready to move on from Old Trafford just one year after he joined and that’s very much down to the form and exemplary fitness of Shaw.
Man Utd are active in the transfer market with incoming and outgoings, the big news right now is Jadon Sancho and Real Madrid defender Raphaël Varane who are the marquee targets for the club this summer.
