Jose Mourinho calls Frank de Boer 'worst manager in Premier League history'

De Boer praised Rashford after the match and said it is a "pity" the 20-year-old plays under Mourinho at Old Trafford - prompting an angry response from the United boss on Monday.

"But Mourinho is not like that".

There has been plenty of talk in recent weeks surrounding Jose Mourinho's handling of Manchester United wonderkid Marcus Rashford. He wants to get results.

De Boer started this season in charge of Palace but lasted just four Premier League games as the Eagles were bottom of the table, winless and goalless.

He told reporters ahead of United's Champions League game against Sevilla: "I heard the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer - seven games, seven defeats, zero goals - saying that it was bad for Rashford to be managed by me because he would never play".

"It's a pity that the manager is Mourinho because normally, he's an English player".

"If he was coached by Frank he would lose because he lost every game". So, like the sad man that I am, I proceeded to spend 30 minutes of my Monday evening tallying up appearances and, lo and behold, Jose was too modest. I said that before the Liverpool match when many of you were maybe not expecting him to start.

His performances at the end of 2017 meant his demotion to the bench was much warranted and now he has comeback, due to injuries, and shown what he can do against Liverpool with his trademark brace.

"I don't feel we have any advantage in this moment".

"I'm not upset with the fans about Rashford", Mourinho said after the match.

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella is an open admirer of Mourinho having admitted to reading the Portuguese's book for inspiration early in his managerial career. "If you go to his numbers and how many matches he played with me last season and this, I would say probably he's in the top five players with more matches in the two seasons".

"Mourinho is not used to losing games at home, so I would settle for a 1-1", said Montella. "We've only been there once before and that was 60 years ago". The Manchester United boss made the remarks today during his pre-Champions League news conference, in which he was joined by Michael Carrick (video embedded below).

Mourinho believes they are still some way off the European elite, but believes from his experiences of winning the competition with Porto and Inter Milan, anything is possible if they make the last eight. When a team gets into the last eight, the feeling is you are among the best and anything can happen.
