Jamie Redknapp reveals what England stars say about Man United striker

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

Rashford scored a match-winning brace in Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday after making his first league start since the turn of the year.

Those words incurred the wrath of Mourinho, who dubbed De Boer the "worst manager in Premier League history" and now the club have come to their manager's aid with the supposed "myth-busting stat".

However, former Crystal Palace and Netherlands legend Frank de Boer was the latest to join the choir over Mourinho's alleged mismanagement of the precocious talent.

Rashford, who burst onto the scene unexpectedly during the Louis van Gaal regime, and the subject of De Boer's outburst against three-time Premier League and two-time Champions League victor Mourinho, made 53 appearances in Mourinho's first season in charge, scoring 11 goals, and has made 40 appearances so far this season, bettering his goal tally by one from past year. If he was coached by Frank, he would learn to lose because he lost every game. I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team, a good example of an important stadium with a big tradition.

Marouane Fellaini and Marcus Rashford have both been selected in Manchester United's starting lineup for the Champions League fixture with Sevilla. De Boer is a protege of Mourinho's predecessor and ally turned enemy, Louis van Gaal, and while Mourinho gave credit to the older man for initially selecting Rashford, the days when they worked together at Barcelona seem distant indeed. "But he's so talented and you want to see him play every week".

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, we are playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home and away", said Mourinho.

"I have a lot of respect for Mourinho as a coach." said De Boer, as per Dutch media outlet AD.

Jamie Redknapp believes Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has the potential to "destroy" England's opponents during this summer's World Cup. "I had a problem during the Burton [League Cup] game in the second half".
