Manchester United left-back Luke Shaw lost his place in the starting XI after the first two games of the season to Tyrell Malacia before reclaiming his place again recently.
Shaw has revealed Erik ten Hag did not need to specify the reasons for his decision to drop him because he was nowhere good enough.
“To be honest I didn’t really need him to say anything to me. I knew the first two games were nowhere near good enough,’ said Shaw.
“I completely understood that it was my time to come out of the team. The results were bad, my performances were not good enough.
“I just had to keep training hard every day so the manager could see how hard I was working. I was just waiting for my opportunity and had to bide my time because the team were doing well and we were winning.
“You can’t moan, I just had to be there every day with the team, being involved and helping the team, whether that is starting or being on the bench.
“Over the years I’ve had a lot of ups and down. For me that’s not good enough and not what I want to be achieving. For me it’s all about consistency and I just need to keep training hard, keep the focus and give everything I can for the team.”
