Marcus Rashford sends message to team-mates following Manchester United's defeat to Sevilla

This is what Dutch legend and former Ajax manager Frank De Boer said recently about Jose Mourinho's treatment of Manchester United wunderkind Marcus Rashford, after the English international's brace against Liverpool.

Looking at the bigger picture, since making his senior debut against FC Midtyjlland on 25 February 2016, roughly two years ago, Rashford has scored 31 goals in 111 United appearances, won the FA Cup, FA Community Shield, League Cup and UEFA Europa League, earned 15 worldwide caps with England and represented his country at the 2016 European Championship.

That proof comes in the form of a statistic which shows Rashford has made more Manchester United appearances than any other player since Mourinho took charge at the start of the 2016-17 season.

I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank De Boer.

De Boer can't be faulted for using a system he trusts, while Mourinho shouldn't be criticised as long as he wins trophies and shows that his team have progressed.

It peaked at No. 2 - behind Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" that also lost a multi-million lawsuit to Marvin Gaye's estate. May wants Cyrus and Sony-owned RCA Records to seize all sales and performances of " We Can't Stop ".

"If he was coached by Frank he would lose because he lost every game".

De Boer was sacked by the Eagles in September after losing his first four Premier League matches without so much as mustering a goal, let alone a point.

"We try to give the best to the kid's education".

"But if you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me". De Boer is a protege of Mourinho's predecessor and ally turned enemy, Louis van Gaal, and while Mourinho gave credit to the older man for initially selecting Rashford, the days when they worked together at Barcelona seem distant indeed. He was Mourinho's most used player in 2017, with 61 appearances for United in all competitions.

Rashford is set to feature in England's squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and might be granted a more prominent role than expected as Gareth Southgate waits to find out the severity of the ankle injury Harry Kane suffered during Tottenham's 4-1 win over Bournemouth on Sunday. "You want to see this player every week" said the former Crystal Palace Manager. But from my experiences of the past, I understand that's part of the game. "I don't know yet [if he is fit to play] but he trained a little bit", said the Portuguese boss.
