Jose Mourinho SLAUGHTERS Frank de Boer after Marcus Rashford criticism

"When you are younger than I am and you are learning the game, I think you do need reassuring words".

The statistic may not be that surprising to match-going United fans who know that Rashford features in nearly every game, across all competitions, but to the wider public it blows a gaping hole in the recent accusation from some quarters that Mourinho is somehow holding the player back and denying him of game time.

"He can make mistakes but Mourinho is not like that and if he has one or two not good games then he puts him out".

He opened the season as Crystal Palace boss, but was out after just four games, as his side failed to score or earn a point in any of them.

"I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank De Boer - seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals".

Later that evening, on BT Sport show Premier League Tonight, De Boer said it was a "pity" that Rashford was playing under Mourinho, that the 20-year-old would receive more playing-time under a different manager, as Mourinho's only focus is gaining a result. Marcus I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that were responsible for his formation and to Van Gaal for his first season in the first team.


Maybe with him, he would learn how to lose. "But he's so talented and you want to see him play every week".

It's never a good idea to get into a war for words with Jose Mourinho.

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home or away [in the group stage], that drew in Liverpool and I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team in a big stadium with a big tradition".

"But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons I've been here".

Rashford is in line to start the second leg of the Champions League round-of-16 tie against Sevilla at Old Trafford on Tuesday night after that performance against Liverpool. When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best and anything can happen.

The Frenchman was absent during the part of Monday's training session observed by the media, but Mourinho said Pogba joined the workout after that and has not been completely ruled out. "That's pretty much where I'm at". "It's kind of been sorted out but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet", he said.
