‘I feel bad for him’ – PSV star says sorry for leg-breaking Luke Shaw challenge

first_img Hector Moreno’s challenge on Luke Shaw Hector Moreno has apologised to Luke Shaw for the challenge which left the Manchester United full-back with a broken leg.Shaw is facing six months out after suffering a double leg fracture in a nasty-looking tackle from Moreno during United’s 2-1 defeat to PSV Eindhoven on Tuesday night.The 20-year-old left the field in tears, and it was clear Moreno – who went on to score the equaliser – was affected by the incident too.“I feel really sorry,” the PSV defender said. “I just feel really bad because I was involved in the accident.”The challenge from Moreno – which went unpunished – was condemned by United manager Louis van Gaal after the match.Bbut his opposite number Phillip Cocu insisted his defender was not a dirty player, and Moreno does not believe he deserved to be penalised.When asked whether he thought he had committed a foul when he challenged Shaw, Moreno said: “I think not. I think I played the ball, but in this kind of situation I don’t care if it was a foul, I feel bad for him, and for his family.“I don’t know how bad it is, but I had myself a situation like that during the World Cup and it’s bad.“It’s difficult to say what happened. Now I just hope he will be back as soon as possible.” 1last_img read more
