The full-back weaved his way through a couple of PSV defenders early in the first half, but was met with a hard tackle by Hector Moreno.

Shaw looked in agony as players called for medics to rush on to the field, with it being found out later that the Englishman had suffered a double fracture to his right leg.

Van Gaal said that Shaw’s situation is terrible, especially given how well he has started this season for the Red Devils.

“He has a double leg fracture,” the Dutchman told reporters.

“He's in hospital and he'll be transferred tomorrow with us or maybe a day later.  

“He'll be operated in Manchester probably. It's awful.

“A boy who came at 18 to Manchester and found it very difficult, then in his second season he's fantastic, and then it happens like this.

“He was in the dressing room with the oxygen mask. He was crying.”
