Ian Wright blames Jose Mourinho for destroying Marcus Rashford’s confidence

  • 17 July 2018

Arsenal legend-turned-pundit Ian Wright believes Jose Mourinho has damaged the confidence of Marcus Rashford during the recently concluded campaign. The England international made a strong start to the 2017/18 season with nine goals and seven assists by mid-December but he thereafter struggled to command a regular spot.

Rashford had sustained a minor injury during the festive period and shortly after his return, he was forced to settle for a substitute role. Ultimately, the 20-year-old managed just nine starts in the second half of the campaign and this appeared to have seeped through his confidence after his relative no-show in the FA Cup final defeat to Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho unperturbed by Manchester City's progress

  • 9 November 2017

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he is not focused on after Manchester United moved level with their cross-city rivals.

The Red Devils trounced Everton by a 4-0 scoreline at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon and thereby continued their unbeaten start to the Premier League season.

Antonio Valencia opened the scoring with a thunderous effort after just four minutes into the game, and the result remained the same until half-time. Everton tried to level the scores with efforts from both Wayne Rooney and Gylfi Sigurdsson but David de Gea was on guard as he secured his 100th clean sheet in the United shirt.
