Jose Mourinho hits back at Frank de Boer over Marcus Rashford

Saturday's clash with bitter rivals Liverpool was his first Premier League start since Boxing Day - and just his third in all competitions in 2018 - but Rashford provided a reminder of his capabilities by scoring twice.

This season, the England global has now scored six times in the league, but he has mostly been used as a substitute.

Of course, Mourinho was made aware of De Boer's comment at his Monday press conference, and the Portuguese was fairly merciless in his response. Normally he's an English player, you want him given time, he can make mistakes.

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, we are playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home and away", said Mourinho.

Rashford could retain his place in the starting line-up when United face Champions League opponents Sevilla in the second-leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford on Tuesday.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled Frank de Boer the "worst manager in the history of the Premier League" after the Dutchman criticised his handling of young England striker Marcus Rashford. "But when you draw away even though it's a 0-0 - and that's not an especially good result - but we get to decide the tie at home, we don't have to win three, four, five, we have to win 5-4, 8-7, 2-1, 1-0, not to win the tie be disappointing".

Jose Mourinho has branded Frank de Boer "the worst manager in the history of the Premier League".

"If Marcus would be coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose".

"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 Mr Van Gaal who was responsible for his first season".

Do you think Rashford deserves more game time under Mourinho?

"But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this season, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons and the same applies to Scott McTominay". "Marcus is having these experiences". He plays for United many matches, he starts some comes from the bench for others. "I'm really happy with Marcus". His goals against Anderlecht and Celta Vigo ensured no player was more important in the Reds' run to the Europa League final.
