Mourinho Discusses Rashford's Red Card

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has branded England international Marcus Rashford a "naïve boy" after he was sent off for headbutting Phil Bardsley in the Red Devils' 2-0 win against Burnley on Sunday.

The frustrated 20-year-old was shown his marching orders in the 71st minute by referee Jon Moss after the striker pushed his head against the defender, who seemed to have kicked out at Rashford seconds before.

In a post-match conference, Mourinho admitted he did not see the whole incident but felt the forward was outdone by a more experienced opponent in that moment.

"I don't know what happened," the former Chelsea manager told BBC Sport.

"I would say it was naive. It was a kid and a very experienced man. Bardsley's been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy.

"I think it was a very, very good performance with a result which was short.

"They played very well as a team, and there were very good individual performances and we should score many more goals. The result shouldn't have been open until the last minute."

The win pushed the Red Devils to 10th place on the Premier League table, six points behind joint leaders Chelsea, Watford and Liverpool.
