Good will from around the world has been pouring in for Luke Shaw after the Manchester United full-back suffered a particularly gruesome double leg fracture just 20 minutes into last night’s Champions League opener against PSV.

Among Shaw’s many well-wishers was the man whose tackle resulted in the United man splintering his tibia and fibia in one fell swoop, PSV defender Hector Moreno – who also suffered a broken leg while playing for Mexico during last summer’s World Cup…

Moreno also apologised for his part in the accident, telling reporters after the game: “I don’t know what happened, I don’t remember. I just feel really bad because I was involved in the accident. I feel really sorry.”

The likes of Adnan Januzaj, Gary Lineker, Alan Shearer, Shaw’s old side Southampton and Aaron Ramsey (who knows a few things about busted legs) also tweeted their support.

Juan Mata also posted the following message on Instagram, along with a photo of Shaw looking like a big daft, soppy dog…

Several hours after being stretchered off the pitch in Eindhoven, Shaw himself managed to reply while presumably doped up to the eyeballs in a hospital bed… 

Here’s wishing him all the best.
