Marcus Rashford insists Jose Mourinho doesn't need to explain prolonged absence

Marcus Rashford insists Jose Mourinho doesn't need to explain prolonged absence

Sunday's clash was the first Premier League match Rashford - one of English football's brightest prospects - had started in 2018.

Liverpool fans were understandably less than impressed with what happened in the first half, with Marcus Rashford capitalising on two bits of iffy defending from the away side.

"I read a quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank De Boer - seven matches, seven losses, zero goals - that Marcus would not learn under me", said Mourinho. As a manager he led Ajax to four league titles in a row from 2011 to 2014.

'If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game.

Rashford is far from an automatic starter at Manchester United, though, with Alexis Sanchez, Juan Mata and Anthony Martial providing stiff competition.

But the Portuguese disputes the idea that Rashford is being held back under his charge.

Herd to face blast from the past in NCAA tournament opener
As Marshall continues a historic season, it's only fitting that its next step carry with it a blast from the past. None of them were able to do what current Marshall head coach Dan D'Antoni has done in his fourth season.

"You have to give the guy some credit for getting footballers to sing from his hymn sheet, with the structure he puts into a team making it tough to break them down and he tends to have a couple of creative players who can make the most of a chance when it comes their way". I would say he was in the top five with more matches for two seasons. "Analysing a performance for me is more than number of goals or assists, and for me I'm really happy with Marcus".

However, even without the injured Paul Pogba, it was United who started on the front foot, adopting a more direct style with Romelu Lukaku the target and the Belgium striker was influential in both Rashford goals.

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

"Of course not. He's a player we trust".

Former Liverpool star David Thompson has pointed the finger at Reds boss Jurgen Klopp and his management team, arguing that the club's first eleven are just as good as Manchester City's.

Rashford could retain his place when United take on Sevilla at Old Trafford with the tie poised at 0-0.
