Ronald de Boer has defended brother Frank de Boer in his row with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho over Marcus Rashford's playing time.

"Tomorrow is a very hard match, playing against a team that didn't lose against Liverpool home or away [in the group stage], that drew in Liverpool and I say Liverpool because they are an example of a very good team in a big stadium with a big tradition".

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".

No player has featured more times for United in Mourinho's time as manager than Rashford.

It's absolutely brutal from Mourinho but it's actually impossible to argue with his assertion that the former Inter Milan manager is the worst manager that the Premier League has seen, statistically at least.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has slammed former Crystal Palace manager Frank de Boer for his comments regarding the Portuguese's handling of England worldwide Marcus Rashford.

Approximately 14,000 American forces are now in Afghanistan, up from a low of about 8,500 when Obama left office. He will also meet United States commanders and allied troops posted in the country, TOLO news reported.


"If Marcus would be coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose". "Analysing a performance for me is more than number of goals or assists, and for me I'm really happy with Marcus". Not many were expecting you to start against Liverpool and he had a good match not just about scoring goals.

Mourinho confirmed that £89m midfielder Paul Pogba returned to training on Monday afternoon but is unsure whether he will return for Tuesday's showdown, as United bid to build on their goalless draw in Spain last month. "We are going to try to show we are better but I don't feel we have any advantage".

Rashford could retain his place when United take on Sevilla at Old Trafford with the tie poised at 0-0. "I don't feel we have any advantage in this moment".

In fact, the 20 year old has made 40 appearances for the Red Devils this season across all competition, providing proof of Jose Mourinho's trust.

"When you are in the last-16 it looks really, really far but when you are in the last eight you start smelling semi-finals, the feeling is that you are amongst the best".
