Jose Mourinho hits back at Frank de Boer


Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho has slammed Frank de Boer calling him "worst manager in the history of the Premier League", after the Dutchman criticised his handling of Marcus Rashford.

De Boer praised Rashford after his huge impact in Saturday's win over Liverpool at Old Trafford and said it is a "pity" the 20-year-old plays under Mourinho at Old Trafford and this prompted an angry response from the United boss.

De Boer who was in charge of five competitive matches as Palace boss earlier this season, losing his four in the Premier League but beating Ipswich in the EFL Cup before his dismissal on September 11.

"I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer - seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals," said Mourinho, referring to De Boer's unsuccessful spell in charge of Crystal Palace earlier this season.

"He was saying that it is not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me, because the most important thing for me is to win.

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

Rashford could retain his place in the starting line-up as United face Champions League opponents Sevilla in the second-leg of their last-16 tie at Old Trafford on Tuesday.
