Luke Shaw Facts
- Born to parents who were Chelsea FC supporters, Luke grew up as one too and had wished to represent the club at the senior level. Having started his youth career with Hersham (2001) and Molesey Juniors (2001-2003), he had attended trials at Chelsea‘s development center in Guildford, Surrey, but was not offered a place in their academy.
- He then joined, at the age of 8, Southampton FC‘s youth squad and represented them until 2011 when he was promoted to the club’s senior squad, eventually making his senior team debut in January 2012. In November 2012, he became the youngest player to start a Premier League match for the club. For his performances with the club in the 2013-14 season, he was selected in the ‘PFA (Professional Footballers’ Association) Team of the Year’.
- When he played in England’s last group match against Costa Rica, a goalless draw, in the 2014 FIFA World Cup, he became the youngest player to feature in a match at that edition of the tournament. He had been picked in England’s 23-man squad at the expense of the highly experienced Ashley Cole.
- In June 2014, when he was signed by Manchester United FC for a sum of £30 million, it was then the world record transfer fee for a teenaged soccer player.
- In September 2015, during a Champions League group stage match, a dangerous sliding tackle against him caused a double leg fracture. He was given oxygen on the pitch and treated by 9 medical staff before being taken off on a stretcher. He was out of action for more than 6 months and returned to training in April 2016.
