Should Jose Mourinho have more faith in Marcus Rashford?

Should Jose Mourinho have more faith in Marcus Rashford?”

His comments about Frank De Boer being the worst manager in Premier League history were straight out of the top drawer.

Rashford started and scored both of his side's goals in United's 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday but De Boer claimed that it is a "pity" that the young forward is going through his formative footballing years under Mourinho.

That proof comes in the form of a statistic which shows Rashford has made more Manchester United appearances than any other player since Mourinho took charge at the start of the 2016-17 season.

Not trusting young players is a stick Mourinho has been beaten with since his first spell at Chelsea but a stat has been unearthed that will change your mind on everything you've heard about Rashford recently.

Mourinho went on to credit United's academy staff and his predecessor Louis van Gaal for their role in Rashford's development and insisted the player remains in safe hands under his own leadership.

'What he was saying was not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win.

"We try to give the best to the kid's education".

The youngster though doesn't feel as though he needs an explanation from his manager and understands that he won't be starting every match United play in.

As usual, though, a number of fans and pundits fed off of the hype of the game, and idiotically hit out at Mourinho for not playing Rashford more often.

Jesse Lingard has praised Marcus Rashford's mentality following the Manchester United striker's match-winning display against Liverpool at the weekend.

We've seen him score on his Premier League, Champions League, Europa League, FA Cup and League Cup debut - he's just such a natural talent.

The Red Devils are next in action on Tuesday March 13 when they play Sevilla in the second leg of their Champions League last-16 tie.

"We are not one of the best teams in the competition but when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen", said Mourinho. "In the last eight you start smelling the semi-finals".

Paul Pogba returns to the squad after a minor injury, but the club's record signing must do with a place among the replacements.
