Jose Mourinho has 'no problem' in picking Luke Shaw at Man United
MANCHESTER -- Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insists he will have "no problem" picking Luke Shaw against Swansea this weekend.
Regular left-back Ashley Young is a doubt after picking up a knee injury playing for England against Italy on Tuesday. There has been intense speculation about Shaw's future after he was substituted at half-time during the 2-0 win over Brighton before the international break.
But Mourinho revealed he could receive a quick reprieve when Swansea visit Old Trafford on Saturday.
He told a news conference on Friday: "If he's available Luke Shaw is always an option. Ashley Young was available to play against Brighton so I started with Luke Shaw, so that's not a problem."
As well as Young, Sergio Romero also returned to Carrington with an injury after a collision with Spain striker Diego Costa during Argentina's 6-1 defeat to Spain. Mourinho has revealed the goalkeeper could now be out "for week" making him a doubt for the FA Cup semifinal with Tottenham on April 21. Romero has been an ever-present in the FA Cup so far this season.
Phil Jones and Marcos Rojo are available to face Swansea after recovering from injuries while Daley Blind is also nearing a comeback after returning to training.
Mourinho said: "Romero is injured, and I think he will for a few weeks. I think in the end he was lucky because was a strong contusion and will take a little bit of time to recover.
"Ashley Young had a problem in the last part of the game against Italy but we think there is a chance for him to recover and Daley Blind came back from his treatment in Holland, started training with us in the last few days and is the only one not available.
"Apart from Daley, after a couple of months out, we recovered all the other problems we had, including Phil Jones, Marcos Rojo played with Argentina, so the picture has improved a lot for us in that aspect."
