Luke Shaw admits Man Utd players argue over fastest player in training

Manchester United ace Luke Shaw has revealed there are arguments at the club over who is the quickest.

United have relied, at times, on pace this season with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ’s side utilising the counter attack.

It is often led by the likes of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Daniel James with the trio using their speed.

And while statistics will give you the actual answer, United full-back Shaw – who has shown serious pace in the past – has opened up on the disagreements that take place.

When asked by Sky Sports who FIFA rate as the quickest, Shaw said: “This one’s funny, because there’s always arguments about this.

  • Man Utd hero Dimitar Berbatov explains why he would have loved to play with Bruno Fernandes

“Not big arguments but the lads are bickering and saying who’s quicker and we was all going to have a 100m race sometime.

“It’s not a good idea in case one of us pulls up, I was going to say Rashy [Marcus Rashford] but Daniel James.

“Jamo would pip Rashy I reckon, but they’re both very quick. Jamo’s pace is unbelievable.”

United boss Solskjaer reiterated how key speed is to his philosophy just four games into his spell as manager.

He said in January 2019: “Pace and power, Man United, that's what we are,” he said.

“When you have players, like we have, with pace – Paul [Pogba], Anthony [Martial], Alexis [Sanchez], Romelu [Lukaku], [Marcus] Rashford – that's how we played with Andy [Cole] and Yorkie [Dwight Yorke] with Giggsy [Ryan Giggs] and Becks [David Beckham] down the sides. We attacked quickly and that's my philosophy as well.

“That's always been the way I like to play football. Get the ball up in the opposition's half as soon as you can, as quickly as you can.

“If you score, fantastic. If not then you've got to have patient build-up play. But attack quickly.”
