Jose Mourinho goes in on Frank de Boer after Marcus Rashford comments

Jose Mourinho hits back at De Boer over Rashford comments “Worst Premier League manager ever”

De Boer had praised Rashford after his impact in Saturday's win over Liverpool and said it is a "pity" the 20-year-old plays under Mourinho at Old Trafford - prompting an angry response from the United boss.

Rashford was given his first-team debut under Louis van Gaal in the 2015/16 season and has since scored 31 goals in 111 games in all competitions.

"But if you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me".

De Boer's tenure at Crystal Palace was statistically the worst in Premier League history.

The Manchester United manager has taken aim at Frank de Boer, after the Dutchman criticised Mourinho over how he has used Marcus Rashford this season.

Slightly critical of Mourinho, and you feel De Boer's criticism would be better aimed at the high pressure setting of a top four club as the reason for Rashford's stunted development.

The United boss hit back by describing Frank as the "worst manager in Premier League history" following his failed spell with Crystal Palace at the start of the season, but Ronald has attempted to play down the spat before it gets too personal.

"He said it wasn't good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win". If he was coached by Frank, he would learn to lose because he lost every game.

Of course, Manchester United's claim ignores the fact that a player is awarded with an appearance whether they play the full 90 minutes or just one.

It's never a good idea to get into a war for words with Jose Mourinho. "Analysing a performance for me is more than number of goals or assists, and for me I'm really happy with Marcus". I try to give the best to the kids, education.

Mourinho confirmed that £89m midfielder Paul Pogba returned to training on Monday afternoon but is unsure whether he will return for Tuesday's showdown, as United bid to build on their goalless draw in Spain last month. "I don't feel we have any advantage in this moment".

Jose Mourinho has been making friends again. "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".
