Manchester United defender Luke Shaw returned from a 10-month injury lay-off in Jose Mourinho’s first game in charge of the club in a friendly at Wigan.

Left-back Shaw has been out since suffering a double fracture of his right leg last September and played the first half against the Latics.

New United signings Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly also started as they made their debuts at the DW Stadium.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic has also signed for the Old Trafford outfit but was absent.

The Swedish forward is on holiday having played at Euro 2016 and, along with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Marcus Rashford and Chris Smalling, was unavailable after recent international commitments.

At half-time the game remained goalless with Mourinho expected to make second-half changes.
