Mourinho Lashes Out at Press, Defends Use of Marcus Rashford

LONDON – Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho accused the press on Friday of being obsessed with him, and defended his use of Red Devils forward Marcus Rashford.

Mourinho’s and the British media’s clash started around Rashford’s stellar play in the UEFA Nations League matches during which Rashford scored two goals in England’s 1-0 friendly win against Switzerland and 2-1 loss to Spain.

Following Rashford’s international display, several media reports and editorials have advised the 20-year-old Rashford to transfer from the Red Devils and join another team where Rashford ought to see more playing time.

Mourinho shot back at his detractors on Manchester United’s official website “With me in two seasons, he (Rashford) had 105 appearances, 5,744 minutes, 63.7 matches of 90 minutes, including five finals.”

Mourinho stressed that he will likely be criticized for not including Rashford in the club’s upcoming league game against Watford on Saturday.

Yet the Portuguese coach explained that Rashford’s playing time for the Watford match is out of his (Mourinho’s) hands because Rashford is suspended and is prohibited from playing after getting a red card during the Red Devils’ 2-0 victory over Burnley on Sept. 2.

“Some people wake up in the morning and the first thing they think of is Jose Mourinho. So I can imagine on Sunday I’m going to be criticized for not playing Marcus, but it’s not my fault,” Mourinho added.
