Rashford might not be at Man United next season if Mourinho stays as manager – reports

According to the Daily Mirror, Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford is growing unhappy with manager Jose Mourinho after being placed on the bench continuously.

The Daily Mirror claims that the 20-year-old has grown frustrated over his lack of first-team opportunities and will consider leaving Manchester United if Mourinho stays on as manager next season.

Rashford scored both goals in United’s 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford last month. However, he has started just five out of United’s last 16 games and was particularly frustrated at not getting a start for Saturday’s incredible 3-2 comeback derby win at Manchester City, the report adds.

The England international was named as a substitute but only came on for Alexis Sanchez with eight minutes to go, after United had taken the lead at the Etihad Stadium.

Since the arrival of Sanchez from Arsenal in January, Rashford has found game time hard to come by and has had to settle for longer periods on the bench.

However, the academy graduate has made 43 appearances this season but he is fed up with his current cameo roles as he wants to start most matches for the Red Devils, the report adds.

Rashford has been at United since the age of seven and earned his place in the first-team during Louis van Gaal’s time at the club.

“Marcus was really unhappy with being left out for the derby,” a United source told the Daily Mirror.

“If Mourinho is still there next season, Marcus might not be, as he wants to start every game.”

The fact that Rashford has made the second-most appearances by any United player this season says how highly he is rated by our manager. The 20-year-old must continue doing the good work and wait for his chances, which would arrive for him, sooner or later.
