Jose Mourinho hits back at Frank de Boer over Marcus Rashford

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

Despite featuring forty times for United this season, Rashford has struggled for starts with Saturday's derby against Liverpool being the striker's first of 2018.

The 20-year-old has played a part in 93 games as both a starter and from the substitutes bench, 12 more than the second-highest appearance maker David de Gea (81) and 13 ahead of outfield stars Ander Herrera and Anthony Martial (80).

"He can make mistakes but Mourinho is not like that and if he has one or two not good games then he puts him out".

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.

Frank de Boer's comments on Marcus Rashford appear to have rattled Manchester United's social media team just as much as Jose Mourinho after they published supposed proof that the Dutchman was talking rubbish.

"If he was coached by Frank de Boer he would learn how to lose, because he lost every game".

"But if you go by 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. No, of course not but he's a player we trust and I told him that before the Liverpool match", added Mourinho.

"They scored goals in Liverpool, drew the match in Liverpool".

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

"The result in the first leg leaves everything open, we don't feel we have any advantage, we are going to try to prove we are better but we don't have any advantage at all".

Jose Mourinho has been in such a good mood this week he's returned to the jovial banter merchant we all know and love.

"The best thing that can happen for a kid is to have experience and Marcus is having these experiences". "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".
