Manchester United have been left seething after UEFA named PSV Eindhoven defender Hector Moreno man of the match during the Dutch side’s 2-1 win over the Red Devils on Tuesday night.
United defender Luke Shaw was the subject of a heavy challenge from Moreno and looked to be in immediate trouble as the Mexican signalled immediately for medical help for the England international.
The 20-year-old suffered a double leg fracture and required oxygen as he was stretchered off the pitch at the Phillips Stadium.
A Manchester United insider told The Mirror of the club’s disbelief in UEFA’s decision.
“We found it strange and disappointing that UEFA made him their man of the match after what happened to Luke.”
Shaw is understood to have undergone surgery in Eindhoven on Wednesday, with reports suggesting the youngster will miss the remainder of the season.
United are more optimistic, however, and believe Shaw could return in six months.
