Mourinho savages 'worst manager' De Boer

Mourinho savages 'worst manager' De Boer

Rashford, 20, has been on the bench 15 times in the league this season but scored twice to secure a 2-1 victory over Liverpool on Saturday having been named in the starting line-up.

De Boer, who was sacked by Crystal Palace after four successive defeats at the start of the season, told BT Sport: "It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho".

"But Mourinho is not like that".

"It was a great win and the Palace game, to get the result how we did shows what kind of team that we are and if we can get past Sevilla, it will put us in a good position and then we have the FA Cup".

"I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League", the United boss said. "I would say he was in the top five with more matches for two seasons", Mourinho said.

"If Marcus would be coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose".

With runaway leaders Manchester City on course for a third Premier League title, second place is the best the chasing pack can hope for and United moved five points ahead of Liverpool.

Rashford's minutes have been limited since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but Mourinho insisted he was finding a balance between burning Rashford out and giving him enough experience.

"Does he play every match from the start?"

"He had a good match and not just by scoring goals".

"But if you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me".

Mourinho offered no insight into Pogba's injury, just that the club-record signing could be involved against Sevilla.

United stifled Liverpool's exhilarating attack early on at Old Trafford and raced into a two-goal lead with 24 minutes on the clock after a double from Rashford.

And the Portuguese admitted United have no "advantage" as a score draw would see Sevilla progress.

"I don't feel we have any advantage in this moment".

"But my experiences from the past mean I understand that's part of the game".

"He's very young, he needs games". "I think we're not one of the best teams in the competition but when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen", he said. "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".
