Jose Mourinho calls Frank de Boer 'worst manager in Premier League history'

Jose Mourinho calls Frank de Boer 'worst manager in Premier League history'

But the 24-year-old is only fit enough for a place on the bench with Mourinho making two changes to the starting XI which beat Liverpool on Saturday.

While doing some punditry work, the former Ajax Amsterdam coach, who was sacked by the Eagles after just four Premier League fixtures, questioned the methods being used to develop young talent at Old Trafford, and had a dig at Mourinho while he was at it.

The former Dutch global had praised Rashford and said it was a "pity" that he plays for Mourinho, who only cares about results, and not a manager who would continue to play him even if he has a bad game or two.

"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". Not even David De Gea. Rashford is Manchester-born, supports United and Reds fans see him as one of their own, another continuation of the club's proud tradition of giving young players a chance.

Sanchez's signing pushed Rashford out of contention for a starting position.

You could see he wasn't right - everything which was easy for him previously became a difficulty and Rashford's natural game had vanished as a effect of not having a rest. The youngster scored twice in a man of the match performance.

United are on the up at the moment after nine points from tough games against Chelsea, Liverpool and away at Crystal Palace.

Manchester United are poised to hand Jesse Lingard a new contract worth as much as £100,000 a week, according to reports in the British media.

With two comebacks after going behind and a brilliant attacking display in the first 45 minutes against Liverpool, Mourinho really has got United playing the way we should.

Mourinho concedes United are not among the favourites for this year's Champions League but insists "anything is possible" if they can find a way past Sevilla.

Some might suggest Mourinho is past it but with two trophies in his first year and now sitting five points ahead of third-placed Liverpool in the Premier League, things are on the up at United.
