Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has labelled Frank de Boer the "worst manager in the history of the Premier League", after the Dutchman criticised his handling of Marcus Rashford.

"He has won many trophies and tactically he is very good at disrupting the opponent's game".

"Mourinho has bought [Alexis] Sanchez and of course it's the truth that it's not good for Rashford's development and he will play less now for Man United".

"I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier Leauge, Frank de Boer", Mourinho began.

Meanwhile, Mourinho hit back at criticism of his management of young Rashford from former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer, who suggested the striker might do better at another club.

Maybe with him, he would learn how to lose.




"I think Marcus" best position is on the left side. 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.

So, is it justified to say that Mourinho does not provide youth a chance when the stakes are so high that even one of the greatest managers of the modern era, Guardiola, can not offer a chance in his side to several talented City youngsters, while the Portuguese has given ample opportunities to three youth academy products?

McTominay is 21 years old and is only going to mature and develop into a midfield general that the Red Devils have missed since the departure of Roy Keane.

Bizarrely, among certain pundits, it was even claimed that Rashford should seek out a loan move to enhance his chance of representing England at this summer's FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation.

Mourinho was in spiky mood ahead of the visit of Sevilla, repeatedly making self-deprecating remarks about his Champions League triumphs as Porto and Inter Milan manager.

Not trusting young players is a stick Mourinho has been beaten with since his first spell at Chelsea but a stat has been unearthed that will change your mind on everything you've heard about Rashford recently. "I had a problem during the Burton [League Cup] game in the second half".
