Mourinho calls De Boer worst manager in PL history

Mourinho calls De Boer worst manager in PL history

Rashford, 20, has been on the bench 15 times in the league this season but scored twice to secure a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday having been named in the starting line-up.

This season, the England worldwide has now scored six times in the league, but he has mostly been used as a substitute.

Mourinho did not hold back when asked about De Boer's comments during his news conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last 16, second leg tie against Sevilla.

Ronald de Boer has defended brother Frank de Boer in his row with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho over Marcus Rashford's playing time.

De Boer said he thought it was "a pity" Rashford played under Mourinho.

"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".

"I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that was responsible for his formation, to [former United boss] Louis van Gaal, who was responsible for his first season".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled Frank de Boer the'worst manager in the history of the Premier League' after the Dutchman criticised his handling of young England striker Marcus Rashford.

The 47 year took over the Palace job at the beginning of the season, after Sam Allardyce left at the end of last season, and lost all four of his first four Premier League games without the side scoring a goal before he was sacked. "Maybe with him he would learn how to lose". "No, of course not but he's a player we trust and I told him that before the Liverpool match", added Mourinho.

The La Liga club held Liverpool 2-2 at Anfield in the groups before coming from behind to draw 3-3 at home, and are more than capable of getting the away goal that could prove fatal to United's progress. I said that before the Liverpool match when many of you were maybe not expecting him to start.

"Frank respects Jose a lot and was simply pointing out that, if Rashford was playing for Ajax and had one or two bad games, he would still start the third game". Mourinho said he did not know whether the midfielder would be available, but Pogba had trained after the open part of Monday's session closed.

"I think we are not one of the best teams in the competition, but I think when a team arrives in the last eight anything can happen".
