Mourinho Slams De Boer Over Rashford Comments

Liverpool left Old Trafford empty handed as the race for second place shifted very much towards Manchester United after a Marcus Rashford brace inspired Jose Mourinho's side to all three points on Saturday.

In the aftermath of Saturday lunchtime's victory over local rivals Liverpool, Lingard's social media joked that McTominay had to remind Lingard and fellow United teammate Marcus Rashford about United's match on Tuesday night, putting an end to their plans for a celebration of the Liverpool victory.

It's absolutely brutal from Mourinho but it's actually impossible to argue with his assertion that the former Inter Milan manager is the worst manager that the Premier League has seen, statistically at least.

De Boer was sacked by Crystal Palace after just five games in charge in September having failed to register a point or score a goal in his four Premier League games in charge.

Ryan is a writer for SPORTbible. As a manager he led Ajax to four league titles in a row from 2011 to 2014.

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

Rashford's minutes have been limited since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but Mourinho insisted he was finding a balance between burning Rashford out and giving him enough experience.

The youngster though doesn't feel as though he needs an explanation from his manager and understands that he won't be starting every match United play in. Does he play every match from the start? No? I'm really happy too.

The 18-time English champions have already scored more than 100 goals in all competitions under Liverpool FC boss.

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

"But in the moment I can not, and I don't want to, think about anything else".

The Portuguese added: "I try to give the best to the kids, education". If it happens again you will probably deal with it better than the first time it happened to you.

"When you are in the last 16 it looks really, really far, but when a team gets in the last eight you start smelling the semi-finals".
