Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has hit back at former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer after the Netherlands worldwide said that it was a "pity" that Marcus Rashford was playing under Mourinho at Old Trafford.

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.

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, we are playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home and away", said Mourinho.

It appears as though they have instantly forgotten that the youngster was the Portuguese boss's preferred option at the start of the season, but it was his own poor form, coupled with the hard work and brilliant form of Anthony Martial, that saw him dropped in the first place.

De Boer took charge of Palace at the start of this season, but was sacked following seven defeats in his first seven games - without his side scoring a single league goal.

De Boer had claimed that Mourinho did not have the patience to let Rashford develop because he was all about getting results.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has lambasted former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer, labelling him the "worst manager in Premier League history", after the Dutchman criticised his treatment of striker Marcus Rashford.

"If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game", he said. Of course not but he is a player that we trust. I'm really happy too.

The £89 million French midfielder missed the clash with Liverpool through injury, but Mourinho confirmed he returned to training on Monday. Only Manchester City, from the top six, we haven't beaten, at this moment.

Jose Mourinho has never been one to mince his words. I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team, a good example of an important stadium with a big tradition. "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".

"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".
