Jose Mourinho calls Frank de Boer 'worst manager in Premier League history'

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.

Rashford scored both goals for United in Saturday's 2-1 victory over Liverpool in what was his first league start since the game against Burnley in December.

The England global shot to fame in 2016 after a number of spectacular performances in his debut season for the Red Devils.

"I would argue that if Klopp's Liverpool team were a little more streetwise, they would have got at least a draw out of the game, but they are too honest for their own good at times".

After Liverpool had a host of second half penalty appeals waved away by referee Craig Pawson, Aldridge has suggested his former club need to become more streetwise to match their rivals competing in the Premier League's top five.

Does Mourinho deserve more credit for giving the youngster regular game time? "The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch".

However when asked about his thoughts on not starting, Rashford conceded it's a team effort and that he'll take it on the chin.

"In these types of games, when the pressure is on you, you just be yourself and I think that's what seems to happen in these games and the team seems to react well, when maybe we don't react as well in other games", said the 20-year-old.

He added: "In football you are going to be up, you're going to be down". We're all in it together. But from my experiences I understand that's part of the game.

Mourinho said: "I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer, saying it was not good for Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win".

"Does he play every match from the start?"
