Marcus Rashford delights in earning Mourinho’s trust
The teenage frontman has not always been a starter this season, but he has figured prominently in the Red Devils’ plans.
He has often been called upon for the big occasion, with his performance from the start in a 2-0 victory over Chelsea earning him plenty of plaudits.
Mourinho is among those to have led the acclaim for a player of considerable promise, with Rashford delighted to see his efforts being acknowledged.
He told Premier League Productions : “It’s a massive thing when a manager like him says that.
“The best thing about it is that you’ve earned it. He didn’t just come in and say ‘there you go – play every game’. He’s made us all work for his trust and respect.
“Sometimes it’s difficult and sometimes it’s easier but the players are all battling and improving to work for him. It’s massive for us and you can see how everyone’s come on this year.”
