Manchester United defender Luke Shaw has taken to Facebook to reveal he has put weight on his right leg for the first time since he broke it in two places earlier this month.

Shaw's horrific injury was sustained in a Champions League clash against PSV Eindhoven, but he seems to be taking small strides in his recovery.

While his manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed Shaw will miss at least six months with the injury, the 20-year-old full-back is coming to terms with this shocking injury as he updated his fans on his progress with this message:


Long road ahead but so happy to be able to put weight on my leg again! 󾌸 #MUFC

Shaw will have been boosted by United's rise to the top of the Premier League table on Saturday, as they leapt above local rivals Manchester City to take top spot.
