Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has continued to speak out on the future of left-back Luke Shaw and challenged him to "grow up" after his performance against Everton on Tuesday night, according to ​ESPN.


Shaw was brought on for the final minutes as United fought hard to draw level against the Toffees at Old Trafford, and it was Shaw's shot - saved by the hand of Ashley Williams - which led to the penalty that earned United a point in injury time. 


While it was not the performance or result United wanted, Mourinho had time for more choice words for Shaw at full-time whistle.

After saying earlier this week that Shaw was not ready to even sit on the bench, and after holding a meeting with the player in the aftermath, he said: 


"[Shaw] has lots of potential, but the football brain and the professional brain has to be with the talent. He has to change his football brain.


"He was doing things in the second half when he was reacting to my voice. If he was on the other side, for sure he would not do it. I was thinking for him and leading his performance. If he was on the other side it would not be the same and at his level it is not possible. 


"He has to improve and we have to help."

Speculation is rife that Shaw could be sold on in the summer, with Tottenham believed to be high on his list of admirers should they lose Danny Rose, though Mourinho went on to state Shaw did have a future at Old Trafford - but only if he showed serious signs of improvement by the end of the season.


He said: "I think he has a future here, but Manchester United cannot wait. We need the kids to grow up.


"The fantastic body he has to play football, the fantastic physical qualities and technical, but he cannot play with my brain.


"He must accelerate the process. Twenty-one years is old enough to have a better understanding, but his contribution was good to improve the team. He goes today in a positive feeling because his performance was positive."
