Manchester United's Jose Mourinho offers in-depth analysis defending Marcus Rashford treatment

15 September 2018

Man United fans will desperate to see their team pick up their third win of the 2018-19 campaign against Watford, but if they fail it could spell curtains for the 55-year-old boss now in charge of the squad. That's now his role at United, which could start to get frustrating for the country's brightest young player.

When asked is he felt Rashford was a "special talent" after Tuesday's win over Switzerland, southgate replied: "Yes he is". Up until when the Chilean joined, Rashford was starting the equivalent of every 1.8 games, whereas that has increased to every 2.5 matches since.

Rashford started both worldwide matches in his favored position as a central striker, benefiting from attacker Raheem Sterling's withdrawal because of injury.

Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don't see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there.

With his pace, movement and fearlessness, Rashford can be a nightmare for opponents when he plays on the shoulder of the last defender.

"Paul came back after the World Cup the week before we started the Premier League", Mourinho said. "He will be a top player". Starts on the wing might be scarce, too.

Does what the Skripal suspects said add up?
It led to the death of Dawn Sturgess, 44, and the poisoning of others, including Mr Skripal's daughter Yulia, 34, and a policeman. Nevertheless, web users were quick to ask why snow would stop two Russians, given their country's history of sub-zero conditions.

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted he is "in the dark" over whether Paul Pogba will stay at the club, the UK Mirror reports.

There's been plenty of talk about Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford in the last few days, with some debating how good he truly is, how much playing time he's earned, and whether he's rotting away on the Old Trafford bench.

Rashford may not be a starter for United when they play Watford on Saturday in the Premier League and Mourinho predicts that decision will be met with hostility.

Rashford will definitely be missing when Mourinho's men travel to Watford for their match on Sunday morning (Singapore time), though, as he begins a three-match ban. There's no outward sign of any resentment from Rashford, but will he continue to be content being a so-called "super-sub"?

Pundit Jamie Carragher suggested that Rashford was not being played enough under Mourinho, and may need to leave his boyhood club in order to fulfill his full potential.

"On the season 16-17, Marcus Rashford played 32 Premier League matches, 11 Europa League matches, including the final, three FA Cup matches, six League Cup matches, including the final, and the Community Shield". Luke Shaw's evolution makes us believe that he is going in the right direction - I want to keep him.
