Marcus Rashford has backed Mourinho as the manager to lead Manchester United to greatness after a couple of underwhelming seasons for the club.
The Red Devils have struggled to challenge for any title since the departure of Sir Alex Ferguson and Rashford is confident Mourinho can turn them into a force to reckon with again.
United’s 17-game unbeaten streak was snapped by Hull City in the EFL cup with a 2-1 loss, but still progressed to the final with a 3-2 aggregate win.
“I definitely think Mourinho is the ideal manager to help Manchester United win important trophies again,” Rashford told Marca. “He is recognised worldwide for his coaching abilities.
“His decision to join United transmitted confidence to the players and the fans.
“We are taking things one game at a time, but I think Mourinho is ideal for United.”
Rashford broke into the first team under Louis van Gaal last term and he is looking to build on that under Mourinho this campaign, though he has only made eight league starts under the Portuguese.
“Jose has been telling me to remain calm and try to approach games the same way as training,” he added.
“He tells me the same things he tells everybody else.”
