Marcus Rashford has portrayed why Jose Mourinho doesn’t start him regularly, demonstrating poor form and struggling heavily against Brighton on Friday night.

With Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez both absent from the matchday squad, the English international was picked to start against the Seagulls.

Nevertheless, there existed a moment in the former half that seemingly provoked the Mancunian fans and the gaffer, which has been attracting quite a reaction since the occurrence.

The Red Devils made a poor start, but were presented with a big chance in the 26th minute, which if utilised, would’ve seen the scoreboard shifting to the away side’s favour then.

Rashford got himself into the penalty area, with Anthony Martial waiting for a pull-back at the penalty spot. However, the English international’s delayed actions resulted in the pass being blocked out for a corner.

The incident quite surely got everyone off their feet. Martial, the supporters, and even the manager was fairly startled by what happened. And Sky Sports’ Geoff Shreeves revealed how Mourinho reacted to the mistake.

Here’s what the commentator stated: “Jose Mourinho is furious at Marcus Rashford. He said: ‘Why didn’t you square it to Anthony Martial?’”

Nonetheless, it was most likely that the forward had no response to give to the Special One.
