Marcus Rashford has thanked Jose Mourinho for showing trust in him at Manchester United this season.

The 19-year-old has been one of the Red Devils’ most consistent performers in recent weeks and has helped the Red Devils reach the Europa League final.

Rashford has become a regular fixture in the first team at Old Trafford after initially breaking onto the scene under Louis van Gaal last season.

Mourinho recently described Rashford as one of the players he “trusts” the most at Manchester United following his bright displays for the Red Devils.

And Rashford has responded to Mourinho by thanking the Portuguese coach for showing faith in him this season.

Speaking to Manchester United’s website, Rashford said: “It’s a massive thing when a manager like him says that.

“The best thing about it is that you’ve earned it. He didn’t just come in and say ‘there you go – play every game’. He’s made us all work for his trust and respect.

“Sometimes it’s difficult and sometimes it’s easier but the players are all battling and improving to work for him. It’s massive for us and you can see how everyone’s come on this year.”
