Garth Crooks believes Jose Mourinho is “slowly squeezing the life out” of the career of Marcus Rashford and that he might need to leave Manchester United.
[color=#E90834]www sbobet888[/color] The 20-year-old forward made his first start for United since last December in their top-of-the-table clash against Liverpool at Old Trafford on Saturday.
He repaid his manager’s faith with a brace as the Red Devils ran out narrow 2-1 winners, but Crooks feels Rashford and teammate Jesse Lingard are best served away from Mourinho, given his record of nurturing players and considering England need the pair to be playing on a regular basis.
“Mourinho said Rashford is a key player at United and always ‘starts or is on the bench’. As if any of that rhetoric will have any bearing on the harsh reality facing Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard for that matter,” Crooks wrote in his Team of the Week column for BBC Sport.
“Mourinho has their careers in the palm of his hand and he is slowly squeezing the life out of both these boys. We know Mourinho has ‘previous’ when it comes to this kind of activity.
“He totally dismissed the potential of Kevin De Bruyne, Mo Salah and even Romelu Lukaku while manager of Chelsea,” added the ex-Spurs forward.
