Jose Mourinho hits back at Frank De Boer over Marcus Rashford comments

England forward Rashford scored two wonderfully taken goals as he starred decisively in United's 2-1 Premier League win over bitter rivals Liverpool on Saturday - his first top-flight start since Boxing Day.

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

Dutchman De Boer hit out at Mourinho for not giving Rashford enough game time.

Former Crystal Palace boss De Boer said: "It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally he's an English player you want to give him time and he can then make mistakes".

Mourinho confirmed Paul Pogba is a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League game against Sevilla after picking up an injury in training last week, as he suggested his side's victory over Liverpool will count for little unless they back it up with wins in their next two games.

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

Coutinho wants Neymar to re-join Barcelona
Jose Mourinho is reportedly hoping to build a team around Neymar while Pep Guardiola is on the hunt for a potential Sergio Aguero replacement.

His comments about Frank De Boer being the worst manager in Premier League history were straight out of the top drawer. Mourinho is aware of such history surrounding United and as long as Rashford's performances remain at a high level, he will continue to get opportunities. I try to give the best to the kids, education.

Frank De Boer's words come across as unusual due to the reality of the situation as Jose's love for the youngster has been publicly stated multiple times.

"But if he was coached by Frank he would lose because he lost every game". Of course, with Marcus, I have to be honest and give the credit to the people in the academy who were responsible for his formation; I have to leave credit to Louis van Gaal, who was responsible for his first season in the first team.

'If you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me. "And Marcus is having these experiences". He plays for United many matches, he starts some comes from the bench for others. His goals against Anderlecht and Celta Vigo ensured no player was more important in the Reds' run to the Europa League final. I'm really happy too.

'I am really pleased with everything.

"I think that Gareth Southgate doesn't mind that I say a couple of minutes of our conversation were about Marcus", said Mourinho.
