Mourinho slams critics with incredible Rashford rant

Marcus Rashford scored the winner with a clinical finish at the King Power Stadium

It had been reported on Wednesday that Rashford, although not happy with not being allowed to play through the middle, was not looking for a route out of Old Trafford. I don't think so.

'Speaking about Marcus, I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow, ' joked Mourinho, knowing Rashford is suspended for the Watford clash.

"I don't see Rashford ever displacing Lukaku so long as he is there, but Lukaku was at Chelsea and he had to come away from there and go to Everton", Carragher said on Sky Sports after England's win.

At just 18 years and 141 days, he became the youngest scorer for United in European competition and landmarks and records tumbled after that: scoring on his debut in the Premier League, the Champions League and League Cup, and in his first appearances for the England Under-21s and the England senior team - the youngest player to achieve that.

Rashford has scored England's only two goals during the global break, slotting one past club-mate David de Gea in the 2-1 loss to Spain and putting in a back post volley in the 1-0 victory against Switzerland.

The forward is stuck behind Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez in the pecking order at the Theatre of Dreams but no outfield player has featured more under Mourinho than Rashford since his appointment in 2016.

Carragher suggested after England's 1-0 win over Switzerland on Tuesday that Rashford may have to leave Old Trafford to play more regularly and fulfil his potential and Mourinho, clearly, was not impressed.

He said all the calls for reservations were coming from either SC and North Carolina where the damage is supposed to be the worst. Benson has lived in North Carolina for more than a decade and now is headed away from the hurricane's destructive path.

"If I'm him I'm kicking the door down as I want to play - I want to play for Man United", Adam told talkSPORT.

"Probably you should remind them he is suspended and can not play. His performances with England, of course I'm happy, he played well, competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension it was very good that he did that".

"I don't think there is trust from the manager to the player that he can do it on a regular basis".

The problem for Rashford, and Southgate, is that he is not getting to play in his best position at United.

Rashford made more appearances than any other outfield player at United last season, as Mourinho likes to point out, but they were mostly from the bench.

"He is not going to give up trying to prove himself at United but he knows he may have a big decision to make soon".
