Jose Mourinho has told Manchester United fans that the secret to Marcus Rashford’s success this season is purely down to his work ethic.

The 19-year-old was the star of the show once again as his free-kick fired Manchester United to a 1-0 win over Celta Vigo in the Europa League on Thursday night.

Rashford has been in fine form for the Red Devils in recent weeks and has earned plenty of praise for his performances for Mourinho’s men.

And the Red Devils manager has revealed that it is the teenager’s effort and desire on the training pitch that is fuelling his success this season.

Mourinho told BT Sport after Thursday’s game: “He’s a 19-year-old kid.

“But he’s a 19-year-old kid that’s in love with football. A kid that finishes a training session and stays half an hour more to take free-kicks and to wait for the opportunity.

“It’s his mentality. He works, he works, he works. He’s very mature and let’s forget the age because what matters is not the age, it’s the quality.”

Rashford will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils return to Premier League action on Sunday with a crunch clash against Arsenal at The Emirates.
