Mourinho Goes On Another Rant, Defends Man Utd Star

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho went on another rant on Friday, defending one of his stars while taking aim at three other Premier League players.
 
 
Marcus Rashford scored twice while on England duty, which prompted pundits to claim that he needs to leave in order to fulfill his potential.
 
The Red Devils manager has also been criticised for the way he has handled Rashford, who burst onto the seen under Louis Van Gaal.
 
However, Mourinho has defended his handling of the 20-year-old by taking aim at Liverpool's Dominic Solanke, Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Everton's Dominic Calvert-Lewin, who all young English players.
 
“Marcus is not Dominic Solanke, not Ruben Loftus-Cheek, not Dominic Calvert-Lewin, he's Marcus Rashford, a Manchester United player," Mourinho said, according to the Mirror.
 
"With an incredible number of appearances and an incredible number of minutes played at the highest level in the best possible competitions.
 
“So Manchester United supporters, for you and just for you, to know what we are doing with Marcus, Luke Shaw, Jesse Lingard, Scott McTominay, that's what we are doing here.”
 
Mourinho also claimed that the media are obsessed with him and his handling of Rashford.
 
"Speaking about Marcus, I think I can expect that Sunday I’m going to be highly criticised for not playing him tomorrow, because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies," he added.
 
"So I can expect that Sunday some of them will wake up in the morning and the first thing they think of is Jose Mourinho, so I can imagine on Sunday I am going to be criticised for not playing Marcus but it’s not my fault, he’s suspended, so probably you should remind them he is suspended and cannot play.
 
 
Do you think Mourinho deserves all the crticism he is getting? Let us know in the comment section below.
