Shaw vows to help prevent Man Utd fan ban for scarf throw

Luke Shaw has promised to help a Manchester United fan who claims he faces a three-year ban from Old Trafford for throwing a scarf towards the full-back.

United were held to a 1-1 draw by Fulham on Tuesday night in their first match in front of supporters for more than a year.

Red Devils fan Shaun Logan wrote on Twitter that he hurled his scarf in a “peaceful gesture” during the match.

Logan added that he is travelling to Gdansk for next week’s Europa League final against Villarreal and fears the game could be “the end of the road”.

He wrote: “(The scarf) was thrown to Luke in a good manner. Nothing aggressive. Was told by the stewards I’m facing a three-year ban.

“All paid up for Gdansk next week and this looks like it could be the end of the road for me. Was a peaceful gesture that was taken out of context. Luke Shaw laughed.”

England international Shaw later vowed to try to ensure the supporter does not face any punishment.

He tweeted: “I understand completely, first match back at Old Trafford, emotions are high.

“I know there was nothing aggressive towards what you did. I will try my best to speak with someone and sort it out.”

Shaw joined Bruno Fernandes in being honoured at the Manchester United awards on Tuesday.

Fernandes won the Sir Matt Busby Player of the Year award for the second year in a row, having notched 28 goals and 17 assists in 56 appearances this season.

He won two Player of the Month awards and 12 Man of the Match accolades along the way.

He joins David de Gea, Cristiano Ronaldo, Wayne Rooney, Ruud van Nistelrooy, Roy Keane and Eric Cantona as multiple winners of the award having won 63% of the fan vote.

Fernandes also claimed the award for United’s Goal of the Season, for his strike against Everton back in February.

But it wasn’t a clean sweep for the Portuguese star at the award ceremony, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s squad snubbing him as they voted for their Players’ Player of the Year on favour of Shaw.

The left-back has been in outstanding form all season, forcing his way back into England contention through is quality both defensively and on the front foot.
