They also think that they are the targets because the pundits do not want to go for Mourinho, and face his wrath. The Portuguese coach frequently questioned Shaw's form a year ago and directly criticised the former Southampton youngster's fitness during the summer.
"I want to let everyone know that I will give everything I have to repay them and deliver success over the years to come. We have an wonderful group of players and the talent we have is scary, there are a lot of young lads that are hungry for trophies".
"There is a difference between the fearless, who want to be there at any cost, and the ones for whom a little pain can make a difference", Mourinho commented.
Shaw joined United from Southampton in the summer of 2014, and has scored once in nine appearances this season.

United will now be keen to secure new deals for goalkeeper David de Gea and striker Anthony Martial after holding talks with representatives of both players in recent months. "I was telling him just now, he was doing things in the second half because he was reacting to my voice".
"I think I will try always to control myself and to respect the stadium and supporters that were my supporters and my stadium for many years".
"Luke, in the first half, every time they went in his corridor the cross was coming and a unsafe situation was coming, so I was not happy with the performance".
There was persistent talk of a feud of sorts with manager Jose Mourinho, who once told journalists after an impressive Shaw performance: "It was his body with my brain - I made every decision for him".
And that latter issue can be summed up in one sentence: "Sanchez believes that he gets more praise from Mourinho for tracking back rather than trying something creative on the attack". Tactically, he has a better understanding and we are very happy for him.
