Manchester United winger Marcus Rashford has now slammed former Coach Jose Mourinho in a new interview with BT Sport, MySportDab reports.
Rashford said that Mourinho’s tactics stopped him from playing his best football at Manchester United.
This is because forwards under Jose Mourinho could not swap positions freely during a match.
The 23-year-old in a BT Sport interview with Wayne Rooney and Rio Ferdinand revealed all this.
When asked if Jose Mourinho allowed players to play free-flowing football, Rashford said:
‘I think it’s when we play free flowing football that we are at our best,’ Rashford said.
‘Under Jose, it was very straightforward like, “you play there, you play there, you play there.
‘Yeah, it’s like that, but it was difficult for me to play at my best.’
In Jose Mourinho’s time at Manchester United, Rashford scored 28 goals for the Red Devils.
Since Jose Mourinho left, Rashford has scored 42 goals during the same time.
Rooney remembered one match in 2017 in which Mourinho’s approach left the young striker with a lot more to do.
‘I remember a Chelsea match when I was on the bench. Marcus kept me there!’ Rooney said.
‘I remember that Jose played a back SIX. And I kept on thinking.
“Jose put Marcus alone upfront on his own. Unless he starts a run from behind, Chelsea and David Luiz with all that much experience.”‘
Rashford scored the opening goal in that game, and it ended in a 2-0 win for Manchester United.
Jose Mourinho was appointed as Manchester United manager in May 2016 and won the League Cup and Europa League.
But he was sacked 2018 with Manchester United sixth in the Premier League table.
Manchester United players were not happy with Jose Mourinho behind the scenes which lead to his sacking.
