Luke is 'unbelievable' says skipper Lallana

Luke Shaw

Luke Shaw

First published in Sport

Saints’ teenage left-back Luke Shaw is displaying a confidence and maturity well beyond his years.

That is the view of captain Adam Lallana, after watching the 17-year-old develop into a first-choice defender at the club.

Shaw has started the last five matches for Saints, turning in a series of eye-catching displays that have cemented his place in the team.

His introduction to the side has coincided with an improved run of defensive form, helping to strengthen what had become a problematic left-back position.

But it is not just Shaw’s performances that have caught the eye of his teammates. It is also his attitude.

“The confidence and matureness he has for such a young kid is unbelievable,” said Lallana, pictured below.

The Saints skipper added: “He’s come in and done absolutely outstanding. To think he’s still 17 is unbelievable.

“Credit to him, his fitness is coming on. He lasted the full game (against Liverpool), so he’s showing he’s making giant strides forward in his fitness.

“We all know the ability that he’s got. He’s unbelievable for his age.”

Shaw has been handed some daunting challenges since his introduction to Premier League action.

His initial start put him up against Swansea’s record signing and Spain international Pablo Hernandez.

A composed Shaw ensured that the winger had little impact on the game.

Last weekend, he was handed perhaps his most difficult test to date – a start at Anfield.

It wasn’t always easy for the youngster, who had to mainly deal with a mixture of Raheem Sterling and Jonjo Shelvey, but he emerged from the afternoon unscathed, and his reputation further enhanced.

Comparisons have already been drawn between Shaw, who has been attracting the interest of England’s elite clubs for some time, and Gareth Bale at that age.

Lallana is not surprised at how well Shaw has settled into the side.

“Not really. He’s such a chilled-out lad and kind of just takes it in his stride,” he said.

“I don’t think the occasion fazes Luke.

“He’s going to be one to watch for the future, there’s no doubt about that.”

Lallana himself has some degree of understanding of what it is like to be in Shaw’s boots.

The midfielder, now 24, was 18 when he was handed his Saints debut, and has grown from there to become one of the senior players in the side and, as of this season, the club’s captain.

With that experience behind him, Lallana is able to offer Shaw some valuable advice and guidance.

“It’s always nice to put an arm round any young lad and help him out,” he said.

“It’s what you want to do to your teammates.

You want to help them kind of settle in.

“It’s been easy to get Luke to settle in, because he’s such a good player and he takes it all in his stride.”

He looks like he has played at Prem level for years.
He is going to have another hard test on Satuday.
Readings wingers caused us much grief last year particularly from our left back position.
It has been very noticable how the goals against us have dropped rapidly since his inclusion.
Seldom looks flustered,pacy with good balance and decision making, are all the hallmarks of a very good player.
Quite astounding at his age.

When you look back at some of the players we had pre-relegation we should never have been struggling. That was bad management and bad strategy at executive level

Now we don't have the same financial difficulties the key this season will be keeping all of the quality we have in the squad and building on the team spirit that Nigel seeks to cultivate.

JWP and Lallana are essential to our growth, they are young, talented and capable of great things going forward.

It is essential that we dont let greed and silly money obscure the big picture.

very promising player solid defensively, but not yet seen much going forward - it will come though. In any case I hope he does well and emulates my all time favourite Saints player, Mark Dennis - the personification of greatness.

There are people moaning about us not taking the game seriously and will only put out a 2nd Team, I can't see that personally, I reckon the strongest team available will be put up for this game, not that I expect us to go very far in the Competition, it could get in the way of our survival.

I hope you give it to them big time.

I think I dislike Chelsea fans more than Pompey fans, and that's saying something. They're just Millwall with money.

Indeed OSPREY! Let's pretend he didn't mean full international. I stand by the slap on the snout I gave him. He presented us with stupidity, on a major scale, there had to be repercussions!
Calm down mate, you're starting to foam at the mouth...

Luke Shaw has already played at international level, in the U16 and U17 squads. We have faith that he will get his chance in both the U21 and full national squads given time.
Ok, ok! Just to prove that I'm the bigger man and to put this wholly unedifying episode behind us..... Little H, I forgive you! I suggest you go away and learn from it! Good lad!
