Rene Meulensteen believes Louis van Gaal doesn't rate Luke Shaw.

The former Manchester United first-team coach, Rene Meulensteen, believes Louis van Gaal doesn’t rate Luke Shaw.

The left-back is has not featured for Manchester United following his move to Old Trafford from Southampton this summer, and Rene Meulensteen claims that the United boss doesn’t have faith in the 19-year-old.

When asked whether it’s clear Van Gaal doesn’t rate Shaw, Meulensteen told talkSPORT: “Yes. It’s a big surprise for me.

“He would have been informed by the club that they were putting this bid in for Shaw because he’s an up and coming player.

“He’s got a good left foot and a lot of pace. He’s got a lot to learn to get to a Man United level though.

“He’s a great prospect but he’s brought [Marcos] Rojo in, which is bad news for Shaw.”
