So who is the worst Premier League manager ever, Jose?

Marcus Rashford is confident his development will not suffer from a lack of game time after scoring twice in a 2-1 victory against Liverpool on his return to the Manchester United starting line-up. "He wants to get results", De Boer said on BT Sport's Premier League Tonight on Saturday.

While he might not have meant any offence to the Manchester United manager and might have even praised him indirectly for his winning mentality, Mourinho certainly took it the wrong way.

Mourinho branded De Boer the "worst manager in Premier League history" after the Dutchman questioned his management of Marcus Rashford.

Ronald de Boer has backed his brother Frank in the row with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho over playing time for Marcus Rashford.

The England worldwide seized his chance to shine in the Manchester United team with both goals in an impressive 2-1 win over their bitter rivals.

De Boer managed Palace for four league games - not seven, as Mourinho claimed - though he does hold the record for the lowest points won by any manager in the history of the Premier League. To his credit, he did win a League Cup contest though.

Wissam Ben Yedder's quickfire brace in the second-half silenced the Old Trafford crowd and Romelu Lukaku's 84th minute strike was merely a consolation for the Red Devils. He should be aiming to score six or seven goals before the end of the season.

City don't have the heritage of pushing youth players to the first-team (the last City player of note who came through the ranks was Micah Richards, who is now playing for Championship club Aston Villa).

"Rashford is without doubt one of the biggest talents in the Premier League and could play a big part in Russian Federation (at the World Cup) this summer".

What a ridiculous concept, especially when the slightest bit of homework would have made them realise just how important Rashford is to Mourinho and United.

As Rashford bids to make his 94th appearance under Mourinho this evening, stretching his personal lead over the rest of the United squad, and on the biggest stage in European football, let's all be thankful that we have such an exciting, immeasurably talented prospect with years still ahead of him.
