Jose Goes All Rafa Benitez In Prepared Defence Over Marcus Rashford

According to The Sun, Marcus Rashford wants to stay at Manchester United for the rest of the season, but he could leave next summer, if he isn't given game time, and Everton must keep tabs on his progress.

The Manchester-born striker has been in and out of the United starting XI ever since Jose Mourinho became manager in 2016, but Southgate insists the Portuguese coach is a "huge admirer".

A United source was quoted by the Sun, claiming that the striker would have a hard decision to make next summer.

"If you don't mind to lose a couple of minutes, I'm going to do something not for you but the United fans and I think I hold myself to the United fans and for them I am going to spend two minutes with you".

On Rashford's woes at club level, Southgate said: "It's not my business to interfere with club managers".

"Yes he is (a special talent)", Southgate said of Rashford after seeing him score the only goal in Tuesday's friendly win over Switzerland.

That's now his role at United, which could start to get frustrating for the country's brightest young player.

'Because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies, so I can expect that Sunday some of them will wake up in the morning and the first thing they think is Jose Mourinho.

"He would have been a bit disappointed about the amount of time he had at the World Cup but it was important especially to get him in the penalty box and remembering the areas he needs to be scoring goals from".

"His confidence will be boosted I'm sure, with two goals against top-quality opposition".

Rashford has started just once for United this season, but twice with England in the space of four days.

Mourinho failed to navigate the barricade successfully, though, and got his foot caught, leading to him falling to the ground.

United entered the worldwide break with a 2-0 win against Burnley but will face unbeaten Watford at Vicarage Road on Saturday in another hard test for the Red Devils.

He then read off a prepared list of stats accentuating Rashford's minutes played. "More of a concern is the young players who might be coming through to challenge that are not getting an opportunity to play".

Speaking on Sky Sports during their coverage of England's 1-0 win over Switzerland, as reported by TalkSPORT, Carragher urged the striker to consider a move for the sake of his career.
