Jose Mourinho Won’t Guarantee Marcus Rashford Starting Place Despite Scoring Winner Against Hull City 

share on:

​Marcus Rashford  maintained Manchester  United’s 100 per cent league record in injury-time with a poacher’s finish from Wayne Rooney’s cross after coming off the bench.

But even after his heroic Rashford won’t be guaranteed his first competitive start under Mourinho for their next match against Manchester City on September 10 – despite scoring the winner against them last time under Louis van Gaal.

‘It’s not him being a match winner that makes me change my mind,’ said Mourinho. ‘You are not going to drop another player when they are doing well.

‘Our number one striker (Zlatan Ibrahimovic) is an amazing player. He is not just a goalscorer, he associates with other players, creates space.

‘We can start some matches with another player in front of Zlatan but you have to be very dominant to play that way.

‘Rashford can play or he can be on the bench. The kid is going to be playing a lot of matches this season.
