Marcus Rashford scored both the goals for Manchester United against Liverpool on Saturday and the Englishman was undoubtedly the star of the show.
But what many people might not know is that the Liverpool game was Rashford’s first Premier League start of the new year.
After United signed Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January, Marcus Rashford has fallen down the pecking order and has played less than 100 minutes of football in 2018.
And former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer has stated that it is “a pity” Jose Mourinho is Rashford’s manager because the youngster is clearly not getting enough chances.
But the Manchester United did not hold back on his comments either and has blasted De Boer about his comments.
Mourinho said: “I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer saying it’s not good for Rashford to have a coach like me,
“If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game.
“I try to give the best to the kid. I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that was responsible for his formation, to Louis van Gaal who was responsible for his first season.
“But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this, I would say probably he’s in the top five players with most matches in the two seasons.”
Mourinho was obviously referring to De Boer time at Crystal Palace where he lasted only 77 days as manager.
