De Boer is worst manager in English premier league history - Mourinho

Despite featuring forty times for United this season, Rashford has struggled for starts with Saturday's derby against Liverpool being the striker's first of 2018.

This season, the England worldwide has now scored six times in the league, but he has mostly been used as a substitute.

Having taken aim at Gary Neville recently, Mourinho set his sights on Frank De Boer on Monday with a withering assessment of the Dutchman's failed 77-day spell in charge of Crystal Palace.

Mourinho confirmed Paul Pogba is a doubt for Tuesday's Champions League game against Sevilla after picking up an injury in training last week, as he suggested his side's victory over Liverpool will count for little unless they back it up with wins in their next two games.

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home or away [in the group stage], that drew in Liverpool and I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team in a big stadium with a big tradition". Does he play every match from the start? No?

Rashford has similarly been deployed from the bench in Europe, but has three goals in the competition so far and will hope he has done enough to earn a starting place for that game.

In answer, the Portuguese said: "I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League - Frank de Boer".

The 20-year-old staked his claim for a spot in the team with a clinical brace against their neighbours rivals, but in the run up to the game Frank De Boer argued that Rashford's development was being halted at his current club.

According to 101 Great Goals, Frank said to BT Sport: "It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho". I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that was responsible for his formation, to Mr [Louis] Van Gaal [Mourinho's predecessor] who was responsible for his first season.

"But if you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this season, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons and the same applies to Scott McTominay. I'm really happy with Marcus". Does he play every match from the start? No?

'I am really pleased with everything. Of course not but he is a player that we trust.
