Harry Kane has told Jose Mourinho not to push Marcus Rashford into the background at Manchester United.

The teenager earned plenty of new admirers as he broke into the Red Devils’ first team last season under former boss Louis van Gaal.

The striker was rewarded for his fine form with a surprise call-up to the England squad for last summer’s Euro 2016 tournament in France.

However, he has found his first-team opportunities at Old Trafford somewhat restricted under new boss Mourinho this season.

Rashford has only made nine Premier League stars for Manchester United so far this term.

And the striker’s England team-mate Kane is keen to see the youngster given more of a chance to impress at Old Trafford in the weeks and months to come.

Speaking in an interview with The Daily Mail, Kane said: “It’s difficult for Man United as they had dominated the league for so long and then all of a sudden that’s over.

“They are trying to get back into contention and they feel the best way is by getting a big manager to buy big players. It doesn’t always work.

“Marcus is a fantastic player and hopefully he won’t get pushed into the background. He will need opportunities and I hope he gets them. I guarantee you there are so many players in academies who are good enough.”
