Man Utd defender Luke Shaw has hit back over criticism of his conditioning and says he is keen to sign a new deal.
The full-back has been in and out of the United side since he was signed in the summer of 2014 and is entering the last year of his contract.
However, he looks poised to figure at the start of the upcoming Premier League campaign, having started all three of United’s games on their tour of the USA so far.
Shaw has been questioned over his conditioning and fitness for much of his time at United but says such criticism is misplaced.
“Of course people can say I’m fat, but I know my own body,” said Shaw.
“I always look big because I’m bigger built and I have, you could say, a Wayne Rooney type of body.
“I guess you’ve just got to take it, because there’s always going to be negative criticism and positive (words), but both of them can make you stronger.
