De Boer 'respects United's Mourinho a lot'

De Boer 'respects United's Mourinho a lot'

Lingard has scored 13 goals in all competitions for Manchester United so far this season and has shown signs of impressive improvement under Mourinho.

Frank de Boer is the "worst manager in Premier League history" and Marcus Rashford would "lose every game" if he played under the Dutchman, says Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho has been in such a good mood this week he's returned to the jovial banter merchant we all know and love.

24 hours after one of the most brutal managerial insults, De Boer's twin brother Ronald has tried to play peacemaker as he insisted that Frank has the utmost respect for Mourinho. To his credit, he did win a League Cup contest though.

As for Sevilla, manager Vincenzo Montella has made just one adjustment to the team which started the goalless draw in Spain last month.

"The good thing was the first chance he had, he got it, he scored because I think in the last two months that was not happening with him", Mourinho said of Rashford.

The United boss had an acerbic response to hand when he addressed a news conference ahead of Wednesday's (AEDT) UEFA Champions League showdown with Sevilla, seemingly holding De Boer responsible for Palace's slump extending to seven winless and scoreless matches as Roy Hodgson picked up the pieces at Selhurst Park.

In Saturday's 2-1 win over arch-rivals Liverpool, Manchester United's Marcus Rashford eclipsed Sanchez's form. I try to give the best to the kid. "But he's so talented and you want to see him play every week".

What a ridiculous concept, especially when the slightest bit of homework would have made them realise just how important Rashford is to Mourinho and United.

Paul Pogba returns to the squad after a minor injury, but the club's record signing must do with a place among the replacements. "There comes a time, whether you like it or you don't like it, that your body tells you it is time to stop playing football", he said. "It's something that you have got to accept". "It's kind of been sorted out but we're still talking about it so there is nothing to totally confirm yet", he said.
