The former Arsenal and English striker was on punditry duty for BBC last night along side Alan Shearer and Gary Linker and he signalled out Man United’s left back and the Job Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has done with him.

“Ole has to get a lot of credit and when you listen to Ole talk about Luke, he says he loves talking to him,” Wright told the BBC.

“He talks about his fitness and the problems he had, to get himself to where he is now where he is fit and playing great stuff.

“Luke Shaw when he came to United from Southampton was a fantastic player. Whatever happened, the injuries or whatever, he fell off a little bit.

“But to hear some of the things the manager (Mourinho) was saying, ‘He’s only playing well cause I’m in his ear’, stuff like that, was really horrible for me to listen to. It was quite degrading a bit.

“He’s a really good player and I’m pleased that he’s turned it round to the point where he’s playing that kind of football but he looks even more comfortable, even better, fitter, stronger.

“I’m delighted for him and long may it continue for him.”
