Marcus Rashford Hails Jose Mourinho's Influence on Development Amid Rumours of Discontent

Frank de Boer, whose brief spell in charge of Crystal Palace yielded neither a league point nor a goal, had said it is "a pity" that Marcus Rashford, scorer of two goals against Liverpool, is managed by Mourinho. Indeed, 29 of his 59 Premier League appearances under Mourinho have been as a substitute. "There are only 11 players that start - it's just one of the those things".

Asked if it would be a failure if United were knocked out, Mourinho said: "A failure?"

Palace lost their first seven games without scoring, though the last three of those came under De Boer's successor Roy Hodgson.

In case you were under a rock or stranded on an island without an internet connection, there is no way you could've missed the exchange between Frank de Boer and Jose Mourinho in the past week.

On Saturday, Rashford marked his return to the side with two goals against Liverpool, and Jose Mourinho has made a decision to reward the England global with a second outing in three days. "His season could have been better than what it has been so far". He's very young, he needs games, he's so talented. "I had a problem during the Burton [League Cup] game in the second half". We have to bounce back on Saturday, ' he said on Instagram following the defeat.

McTominay, another United product, ticks all the boxes that Mourinho requires in a central midfielder: tall, powerful and determined.


Rashford has been impressive for Manchester United ever since he broke through into the first-team after climbing the ranks of the youth setup.

The 20-year-old forward has been a regular in his manager's plans this season, but has not always been used from the off.

Meanwhile, on the blue side of Manchester, Pep Guardiola, the "messiah" of modern football, who has changed the way the game is played, seems to have added another trophy to City's cabinet.

"Now I have only one name in my mind: it is Sevilla".

Marcus Rashford has praised Jose Mourinho's influence, claiming he's learning a lot despite nagging rumours of his growing discontent at the rotation policy at Old Trafford.

Bizarrely, among certain pundits, it was even claimed that Rashford should seek out a loan move to enhance his chance of representing England at this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.
