Not many were expecting you to start against Liverpool and he had a good match not just about scoring goals.

De Boer, though, suggested after the game that Rashford would be better off playing under a manager other than Mourinho.

"I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League - Frank de Boer", said Mourinho.

"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". If he was coached by Frank, he would learn to lose because he lost every game.

Ronald De Boer tries to cool things between Jose Mourinho and Frank de Boer, stressing that his brother has "lots of respect" for the Manchester United boss.

"It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally, he's an English player". "But Mourinho is not like that".

"It was a great win and the Palace game, to get the result how we did shows what kind of team that we are and if we can get past Sevilla, it will put us in a good position and then we have the FA Cup". Rashford is Manchester-born, supports United and Reds fans see him as one of their own, another continuation of the club's proud tradition of giving young players a chance.

He's a player, he's very young, he needs games, but he's so talented.

Mourinho did not hold back when asked about De Boer's comments during his news conference ahead of Tuesday's Champions League last 16, second leg tie against Sevilla.

Anthony Martial has returned from a thigh injury to add competition and Jesse Lingard, who was on the bench against Liverpool, is also pushing to start.

"If you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this season, maybe I am wrong, but I would say he is probably in the top five players with the most matches over two seasons".

And a crucial aspect of Rashford's immediate impact came from the fact Mourinho took him out of the spotlight for some time.
