The latest to be hit with the inane line of questioning is Manchester United’s forgotten child, Luke Shaw. Although, it’s great to know that the former Southampton left-back is still alive and well, and that the dungeon Mourinho is keeping him, Mkhitaryan and Schweinsteiger in, hasn’t sucked all the laughter out of him, just yet.
“A lot of people rinse me for it, but Moses is the toughest opponent,’
“The power and strength he had… so direct, he never gave me a second to breathe.
‘I was pretty young, it was either my first or second season with Southampton, he was, now when I think back, my toughest game I’ve had.”
There’s two great things about these comments from the bloke the Red Devils faithful believe will one day become a greater English full-back than Danny Mills. Firstly, Shaw said “rinse me for it” like he’s on the set of The Only Way Is Essex or he’s been hanging out with Carl Jenkinson too much.
Secondly, Chelsea fans will now pretend that they’ve always rated a revitalised Victor Moses under Antonio Conte, and that Shaw’s naming of Moses is no surprise to them. Honestly, football fans kill me?!
9 players who suffered from ‘Rooney syndrome’
2008 – Fernando Torres
It's one of those situations where, on one hand, you're devastated that such a talent disappeared, almost overnight. However, on the other hand, you're so pleased that it was Chelsea who got left with an expensive flop.

Raul and Morientes, were serious #relationshipgoals.
And then the Spaniard kind of got, well, a little bit shit.
Shame, really; I always liked being Morientes down the park.
Perhaps an element of loyalty coming in here again. Don't get us wrong, Kaka could be a world-beater on his day, but only really had two AMAZING seasons.
If ever the slow pace of Italian football suited anyone, it was the Ukrainian superstar.
A mercurial talent, but a talent nonetheless. Have to wonder what might've been if England had managed to not cock-up their golden generation.

Never actually quite sure if the Argentine striker was any good. But football hipsters tell me, so.
Really, really shouldn't have joined Chelsea - sound advice for anyone in football, really.
