Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho opens up on Marcus Rashford’s England future

by Marwan Harraz

Manchester United’s Jose Mourinho has opened up on Marcus Rashford‘s England future after some fans were concerned his reduced game time would see him fail to make the World Cup.

Parts of the media have made it seem as though the youngster has hardly appeared for his club this season, risking his international career with even some pundits calling for him to leave.

Rashford though has made over 40 appearances for United across all competitions already this campaign and prior to his injury was the only player to feature in the matochday squad for every match.

The academy product is clearly trusted by his manager who even publicly supported after the doubters came calling.

England supporters concerned with going to Russia without Marcus have had their fears addressed by Mourinho who claimed that his player will undoubtedly travel with the international squad.

Most observers of modern football believe with the ability and quantity of players currently available, England should only hand international caps under certain conditions.

These conditions conclude that only players who consistently play well in the top divisions of football should be selected to represent their countries.

However, international managers are often left in difficult situations where their only options are to either select a top player who hasn’t played much club football or a lesser quality player who has played plenty of minutes.

Either way, even football neutrals can admit that Marcus Rashford would add something special to England’s senior set up and leaving him out of the World Cup would be bizarre to say the least.
