According to Phil Thompson, Jose Mourinho’s lack of trust in Rashford is Marcus Rashford’s lack of game time at Manchester United.
Mourinho has been preferring Romelu Lukaku up front, but the 20-year-old featured twice for England during the international break. He scored the winner for England against Switzerland on Tuesday night just three days after he scored the opening goal in the UEFA Nations League defeat by Spain.
Thompson said: “Marcus Rashford is a very talented boy. Is he going to fit in at Manchester United? I don’t think so.
“I don’t think there is trust from the manager to the player that he can do it on a regular basis. That is why he is only coming into the team now and again. He is only 20 years old and he probably needs a little more time, but I think this season is a big season for him. Come the end of the season he then has to make the decision He’s got to start playing regularly.”
He added: “He has to analyse his game time this year but when you look at a manager to player relationship, I don’t think there is total trust from the manager of whether he’s a centre-forward, a left-sided player or a right-sided one. The big question will come down to Marcus. Not in January but next summer big questions will have to be asked.”
