Jose Mourinho believes Marcus Rashford can play the three roles in front, but must play in centre forward for England.
The Portuguese manager defended his use of the youngster in the wing role, even though he is out for this weekend’s clash.
However, Mourinho believes Rashford can only play centrally for England due to their style of play.
“To be in a system of four, to be a winger, it takes him a little bit out of his positions, but the way Manchester United plays is with three attacking players,” he said.
“When we play with three up top – because sometimes we also play with two – our three attacking players are not wingers. They’re not wide or open all the time.
“They have the freedom to come and play in between positions, and any one of the three positions is a good position for him.”
Mourinho said Rashford had to be used centrally by England due to Gareth Southgate’s system.
