"But Mourinho is not like that".

De Boer, who lost his job after five games and 77 days in charge of Crystal Palace, suggested that the pressure on Mourinho to get results is hampering Rashford's progress.

De Boer said after Rashford had scored twice for Manchester United against Liverpool on Saturday that it was "a pity" Mourinho was his manager because he lacks patience with youngsters and is too interested in results. I would say he was in the top five with more matches for two seasons.

"But if he was coached by Frank he would lose because he lost every game".

"Rooney and Ronaldo were unreal", Rashford said.

Rashford's minutes have been limited since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January, but Mourinho insisted he was finding a balance between burning Rashford out and giving him enough experience. Normally he's an English player, you want him given time, he can make mistakes.

"He started and had a good match and I'm not just talking about goals". He was saying its not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me.

It initially appeared top prospect Gleyber Torres had the advantage, but his spring struggles opened the door for Tyler Wade . Drury figures to see more time at third base, which could nudge Andujar back to the Minors."I'm glad we got him", Wade said.


Rashford is set to feature in England's squad for the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation and might be granted a more prominent role than expected as Gareth Southgate waits to find out the severity of the ankle injury Harry Kane suffered during Tottenham's 4-1 win over Bournemouth.

The £89 million French midfielder missed the clash with Liverpool through injury, but Mourinho confirmed he returned to training on Monday.

Rashford could retain his place when United take on Sevilla at Old Trafford with the tie poised at 0-0.

Ronaldo famously spent six years under Sir Alex Ferguson in Manchester before moving to Madrid in a world record £80m transfer.

The Portuguese added: "I try to give the best to the kids, education".

Mourinho was in spiky mood ahead of the visit of Sevilla, repeatedly making self-deprecating remarks about his Champions League triumphs as Porto and Inter Milan manager.

Asked if he feels he has the conditions to bring a fourth European Cup to Old Trafford, Mourinho said: "Not yet, but when a team reaches the last eight anything is possible". "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".
