Mourinho defends Rashford treatment and brands pundits 'compulsive liars'

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho turned on the pundits once more on Friday as he launched a detailed defence of his use of England global striker Marcus Rashford.

"The only thing I don't like in Chris in this moment is the haircut but I am nobody to tell him that", said Mourinho. "He was never ever out of a selection, so he knows and that's the most important thing". "Probably you should remind them he is suspended and can not play". "It's OK. I accept the decision of the referee and I will have one game to rest". "I don't understand why people don't like the realness about him". He had 53 appearances, but if you want to take minutes played, he played 3,068 minutes and, if you want to divide that into 90 minutes of matches, he played 34.2 matches of 90 minutes in 2016/17.

"So the people that is speaking about these minutes, I think they are a bit confused".

Everything's have been running like clockwork for Watford during their flying start and captain Troy Deeney has revealed Gracia has no time for tardiness, with players fined £100 per minute for being late for training.

Romelu Lukaku is in front of Rashford and I don't see Rashford displacing him as long as he is there.

He has to analyse his game time this year but when you look at a manager to player relationship, I don't think there is total trust from the manager of whether he's a centre-forward, a left-sided player or a right-sided one. Of course, I am happy with the players. Last campaign, Rashford made 35 Premier League appearances - 18 of them starts - completing at least 80 minutes just 10 times.

Doucoure has been an integral figure as the Hornets have won their first four Premier League games and played in the same France age group squads as Pogba. He played well, he competed well, he scored and especially in a period where he comes with some sadness after his suspension.

There have been suggestions that the striker will need to leave Manchester United and get away from Mourinho in order to play more football and develop further.

With goals in each of England's two games over the worldwide break, Marcus Rashford might have nailed down a starting place for his country.

Mourinho highlighted the club's record in bringing through young British players, while listing Rashford's appearance statistics since he took charge at Old Trafford in 2016.

The first half an hour was even as the two sides tested each other out - United probed but the home side looked risky on the break, confidence coursing through the players on the back of four straight wins. "That's the problem you're always going to have".
