Mourinho names Premier League's worst manager ever

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho says Frank de Boer is the "worst manager in Premier League history" and Marcus Rashford would "lose every game" if he played under the Dutchman.

He incurred the United manager's wrath by telling BT Sport that it's "a pity" Marcus Rashford plays under Mourinho after the England worldwide marked his first league start of the year with both goals against Liverpool. "You want to see this player every week".

Mourinho also took aim at the club's fans after the Liverpool game as sections of United fans jeered midfielder Scott McTominay for trying to slow the game down and Mourinho for substituting Rashford with midfielder Marouane Fellaini. "But when you draw away even though it's a 0-0 - and that's not an especially good result - but we get to decide the tie at home, we don't have to win three, four, five, we have to win 5-4, 8-7, 2-1, 1-0, not to win the tie be disappointing".

Despite featuring forty times for United this season, Rashford has struggled for starts with Saturday's derby against Liverpool being the striker's first of 2018.

The United boss had an acerbic response to hand when he addressed a news conference ahead of Wednesday's (AEDT) UEFA Champions League showdown with Sevilla, seemingly holding De Boer responsible for Palace's slump extending to seven winless and scoreless matches as Roy Hodgson picked up the pieces at Selhurst Park.

McTominay and Matic plugged the gaps and, along with Ashley Young hounding Mohamed Salah, blunted Liverpool's lethal forward line. He was one of the best players on the pitch, so I am happy that we have him in the team, and he needs to continue in this way".

"If you go to his numbers and how many games he played with me".

On hearing these comments, the Special One was enraged, and fired back a reply slating De Boer for his poor record in the Premier League, while adding that he had no right to bad-mouth another manager. I try to give the best to the kid, I have to be honest and give the credit to the people of the academy that was responsible for his formation, and to Louis Van Gaal who was responsible for his first season.

'What he was saying was not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me because the most important thing for me is to win. "When you're in the last 16 it looks really far but in the last eight you start smelling [the] semi-finals".
