Ian Wright has claimed that Manchester United fans are disappointed with the way Jose Mourinho has treated Marcus Rashford at Old Trafford.

The young striker is widely regarded as one of England’s finest young talents but he was made to wait for a regular spot in the first team under Mourinho last term.

Indeed, the 20-year-old only started 17 Premier League games for the Red Devils last term as Manchester United ended up in second place in the table and without a trophy.

His lack of regular starts in the first team at Old Trafford has inevitably prompted talk that he could be on his way out of the Red Devils, potentially on a loan deal to gain some more first-team experience.

And Arsenal legend Wright feels that the Red Devils fans will have been disappointed by the way Mourinho has been handling the England talent recently.

Speaking to Sky Sports, Wright said: “He’s had a manager that has been very tetchy all season.

“We know he’s not got a history, Jose, of really bringing through youth players, youth-team players.

“I think he has gone to a club like Man United and he’s got players that have come through the youth from a club that predominantly continues to bring through youth players.

“Jesse Lingard, Marcus Rashford in this particular instance.

“And I feel the Man United fans are a little bit disappointed in the way he’s treated Rashford.

“Watching Rashford when he plays for England and watching Rashford playing the other day against Costa Rica was me watching a player who has got total faith from his manager.

“A manager who has total faith and has give him responsibility to go and play and go and express yourself and I think we saw that.”

Manchester United are believed to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as the Red Devils look to try and build a squad capable of winning the title next season.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final triumph back in 2013.
