MANCHESTER- Marcus Rashford says that he is learning a lot under Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho and is confident a recent lack of game time will not stunt his development.
The past months have seen the 20-year-old England international’s remarkable rise plateau somewhat as he struggled for stats under Mourinho.
United’s win over Liverpool was his first Premier League start since Boxing Day but there was little evidence of rust as Rashford scored twice in a man-of-the-match display.
“Right now, I’m probably not learning the most on the pitch,” said Rashford. “In training is where I’m doing most of my learning.”
“You have to take it into the game and today Saturday it worked. Personally, taking the confidence from this game into the next games is important.
“There’s lots of things (I’m learning). It is just the all-round game is starting to become more clear.
“Things this manager wants are becoming more clear to me. The more you do, the easier the results come on the pitch.”
Rashford has certainly boosted his chance of earning another start against Sevilla in the Champions League on Tuesday. He also admits he is “more comfortable in the middle”, does not feel the need to express any frustration to Mourinho.
“He doesn’t have to (speak to me), said Rashford. “In football you are going to be up, you’re going to be down, he added.
