Man Utd boss Mourinho blasts de Boer over Rashford remarks

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

United face Seville tomorrow in the last 16 of the Champions League with the tie finely poised after the goalless draw from the first leg in Spain last month.

Rashford, who scored a brace to hand United a 2-1 win over rivals Liverpool on the weekend, hasn't been a regular feature in the side as of late, but his heroics against the Reds must have given Mourinho something to think about.

De Boer lost seven games from seven before getting the sack and Mourinho said: "I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League".

Mourinho, clearly angered by De Boer's comments, fired back at the ex-Netherlands star by branding him the Premier League's worst manager of all-time.

Rashford has had to make do with limited first-team opportunities under Mourinho this season, particularly following Alexis Sanchez's arrival from Arsenal in January, but the England global returned to the starting line-up on Saturday afternoon to score both goals in a 2-1 win over Liverpool.

The former Netherlands defender, who worked alongside Mourinho at Barcelona when the United manager was Louis van Gaal's assistant, didn't win any of his league games as Palace manager and his team didn't score a goal. He wants to get results.

He said: "Right now, I'm probably not learning the most on the pitch".

"If Marcus would be coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose", Mourinho added. "And Marcus is having these experiences". He plays for United many matches, he starts some comes from the bench for others. "But he's so talented and you want to see him play every week". He's a player we trust.

Not trusting young players is a stick Mourinho has been beaten with since his first spell at Chelsea but a stat has been unearthed that will change your mind on everything you've heard about Rashford recently. I am really pleased with everything. I'm really happy with Marcus'. There are only 11 players that can start - it's just one of the those things.
