Marcus Rashford turned up the heat for The Three Lions on Thursday, which has led the Manchester United fans to take a dig at Jose Mourinho.
The Red Devils managed to finish second in the points table, but that does not deter the fact that the progress at the club is somewhat stalled at the moment.
The Portuguese tactician has his ways of getting things done, and that has often affected the form of many a player. One such player, who is struggling the same way, is Marcus Rashford.
The English international, who came through the ranks at Old Trafford, had an explosive start to his senior career under Louis van Gaal, but has not been able to replicate that form under Jose Mourinho.
He still showed glimpses of his talent in games like against Liverpool last season, but he is capable of producing so much more, as he showed in England’s recent friendly against Tunisia.
Playing in Yorkshire, Rashford looked a completely different beast, having been given the freedom to play to his strengths.
He gave the crowd something to cheer in just the second minute with some superb skill, and backed it up with a goal just 12 minutes into the game – a long-range dipping effort to give his side the lead.
He was unplayable at times on the night, and was one of the best players for the hosts in that game.
But it does not seem like Rashford is in the good books of Mourinho, who only gave him 17 league starts last season. Moreover, the gaffer is now looking at the likes of Marko Arnautovic to add to his strike force this summer.
However, the United faithful have now urged Mourinho to give Rashford more chances in the first team as well as more freedom in attack, so as to get the best out of the young starlet.

This is the best performance I’ve ever seen from Marcus Rashford. In terms of all-around play, he’s been incredible.

If Rashford plays poorly for England it’s José fault for ruining him.
If Rashford plays well, José is blamed for not playing him like that at United..
When Rashford improves its his own hard work…If he regresses it proves José can’t develop youth.

He is still 20 and has a long future ahead of him, but if he continues to be frustrated at Old Trafford, he may wish to find a way out, which could be disastrous for the Red Devils.
