"People always think I'm joking, but one of my hardest games ever was against Victor Moses when I was coming in as a 17-year-old at Southampton," Shaw said on United's official website.

"Maybe because I was so young. He was really quick, direct, strong and that was a challenge for me.

"I've played against the likes of Gareth Bale, Messi and [Eden] Hazard, and they were all so good, but I always remember Victor Moses as a really tough opponent as well."

The England star who moved to Old Trafford from Southampton in 2014 for a fee in excess of £30m has already made 132 appearances for the club.

Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that Victor Moses is now regarded as one of Liverpool's terrible signings under Brendan Rodgers as he was named in an eleven-man list compiled by talkSPORT.com and cited by Complete Sports.

The 29-year-old had moved to Anfield on loan from rivals Chelsea just before the start of the 2013/2014 season.

Moses managed to score just 2 goals in 22 games for the club and was later sent on loan to Stoke City.

The retired Super Eagles player scored a total of 46 goals during his stint with England clubs including Crystal Palace, Wigan, Chelsea, Liverpool, Stoke City and West ham.
