Frank De Boer might have stepped on the wrong toes with his statement on Marcus Rashford with Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho giving him his share of Mudslingers.
Rashford, who scored a brace in the 2-1 win against Liverpool during the weekend has had a torrid second half of the season with game time coming at a premium for him and his form, hitting an iceberg. However, Liverpool proved the perfect opposition for the Three Lions World Cup hopeful to register his name on the Manchester United faithful again with a scintillating performance that ended in two well-taken goals for the United youngster.
Frank De Boer, former Ajax manager and the younger of the famous De Boer brothers from Holland aired his opinion on the growth nd development of Rashford under Mourinho saying the Portuguese former Chelsea manager lacks the wherewithal for Rashford to grow. De Boer was manager of Crystal Palace in a very short-lived tenure at Selhurst Park before being shown the door after a catalogue of poor performances.
Displeased with De Boer’s unfriendly comments, Mourinho responded by saying;
“I read a quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank De Boer – 7 matches, 7 losses, 0 goals – that Marcus would not learn under me. Maybe with him, he would learn how to lose.”
Mourinho’s clap back game is about the hardest seen in the history of football having at one period or the other aimed a dig at Arsene Wenger calling him a “voyeur”, then a ” specialist in failure” and Antonio Conte, a good ” match fixer” before the current Chelsea manager replied by saying he’s suffering from “senile dementia.”
