​Rashford credits Man Utd manager Mourinho for his development

Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has hailed manager Jose Mourinho for contributing in his development as a player over the past 12 months.

Rashford managed only 11 goals in 53 appearances in all competitions for Manchester United last season but despite the average looking goal record, the 19-year-old had a crucial role to play in helping the Red Devils claim the Europa League as well as the EFL Cup titles.

He said: "A lot of people have a lot of opinions about him but what he has done is clear to see - it's not all what people say.

"I've made a lot of appearances under him this year and I've earned his trust, which is important. He's got me to where I am now. To be honest, he lets you get on with it and make your own decisions – lets you mature. If he has to step in then he will."
