Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has said the Jose Mourinho seasons pretty much made him the footballer and man he is today.
The Manchester-born striker immediately stole the hearts of United fans in February 2016 with a brace in the UEFA Europa League against FC Midtjylland under former manager Louis van Gaal, aged 18.
But according to Rashford, it was under his next manager Mourinho where his career and professional character would be strongly defined.
"There are loads of different aspects – but my time under Jose (Mourinho) was a massive learning period for me and I feel like I understood football in a different way to what I understood football before that," the 23-year-old told Sky Sports, as posted by Soccer Laduma.
"I learnt to win in different ways. It was a tough time in my career, but they're the moments that either make you or break you.
"His style of coaching might not have been perfect for me, but it definitely made me improve as a player and as a person as well.
"Coming through the academy, it was always about playing as well as you could play and expressing yourself and go and score as many goals as you can. If you can win 6-4, then go out and win 6-4, but under Jose, we learnt that 1-0 is the same as 6-4,” Rashford concluded.
Up next for Ole’s side is Real Sociedad for a last 32 UEFA Europa League battle on Thursday.
