Marcus Rashford’s brother has taken an indirect dig at Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese tactician was handed his first defeat as Tottenham Hotspur boss on his very first return to Old Trafford, as a brace from Marcus Rashford earned the home side three valuable points against the Londoners.

Even apart from the goals, the 22-year-old’s overall performance was highly impressive, which earned him plaudits from all around.

Following Rashford’s brilliance, however, his brother was quick to take a dig at Jose Mourinho through a post on social media.

He posted a screen-grab of Mourinho’s reaction to Rashford’s miss back when Manchester United faced Young Boys on the European stage—as if to highlight how wrong Jose was to disregard Marcus, more so after his performance against Spurs.

Mourinho, however, had nothing but praise for his former forward. In fact, he even revealed that he had warned his Tottenham players about the enormous threat that United’s academy graduate poses.

Speaking about how good the youngster is, especially from the left wing, Jose told the media: “As I always told, from the left and not as a nine, from the left. I knew it, I told the boys. I told him exactly the way he does things. He was good, he was really good.”
