Jose Mourinho tips new Man United signing to improve Marcus Rashford
Jose Mourinho believes that Alexis Sanchez will help to bring the best out of Marcus Rashford at Man United
Jose Mourinho believes that Marcus Rashford will improve his game significantly following Alexis Sanchez’s arrival at Manchester United.
The Chile international became the Red Devils’ first signing of the January transfer window last week when he finally completed his much-anticipated move from Arsenal.
Sanchez will be aiming to hold down a regular spot in the first team at Old Trafford as he bids to help Manchester United enjoy a strong end to the season.
Rashford will be hoping to learn from playing alongside Manchester United’s latest signing as they both line up for Mourinho’s team this term.
And Mourinho believes that the stage is set for Rashford to develop into a top class player at Old Trafford because he is surrounded by such talented players such as Sanchez.
Mourinho told Manchester United’s website: “The kid is having a hell of an experience at every level so there is an amazing future waiting for him, and being surrounded by these players can only help him.
“Marcus’s story is quite interesting because he started playing with Mr Van Gaal when the team was really in trouble to have options, and then the monster that kills the little kids arrives but he plays every game.”
Manchester United are currently in second place in the Premier League table as they prepare for their home clash against Huddersfield Town in the top flight at Old Trafford on Saturday afternoon.
The Red Devils, who won the Europa League last term, will take on Spanish side Sevilla as they look to try and reach the quarter-finals of the Champions League later this month.
