Mourinho defends Rashford

Mourinho defends Rashford

14 Sep 2018, 13:45

Marcus Rashford has been defended by Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho saying "he is not Dominic Solanke."

Rashford was on target for England, netting two goals which prompted suggestions that he should be a starter at United. Mourinho has jumped to defend his use of the England international saying he is not Dominic Solanke or Ruben Loftus-Cheek as he gave Rashford's statistics since he took over as manager in 2016. 

"Marcus Rashford is not Dominic Solanke. He is not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, he is not Dominic Calvert-Lewin," said Mourinho.

"He is Marcus Rashford, a Manchester United player, with an incredible number of appearances and an incredible number of minutes played at the highest level in the best possible competitions. So Manchester United supporters, for you and just for you, to know what we are doing with Marcus Rashford, that's what we are doing here."

The 20-year-old is set to miss Saturday's trip to Watford after he is suspended following his dismissal against Burnley.
