Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has been the subject of much speculation this week, with reports suggesting he has become disillusioned with his lack of game time under Jose Mourinho and may look to leave the club this summer.
However, as Mourinho was quick to point out when speaking to the media today ahead of his sides Premier League against West Brom on Sunday, Rashford has actually played more games than any other player since the Portuguese coach took over at Old Trafford in the summer of 2016.
The 20-year-old England international has featured in 44 games for United this season, although only 22 of those were starts.
He has however, still managed to post respectable numbers, scoring 12 times and providing 6 assists.
Rashford recently gave an interview to Inside United, and when asked about his record of having played more games than any of his team-mates under Mourinho the talented youngster said:
“I wasn’t aware of (the statistic that I played most for Mourinho) before I saw it and it’s something to be proud of,”
“But we always want more, and we always want to show progression individually and as a team, so the numbers don’t really matter as much as the results do to me.”
Rashford also admitted that finishing in second place in the Premier League and winning the FA Cup remain his sides main targets going into the final weeks of the season.
“I think our main focus now is finishing second in the league,”
“That’s important for us and winning the FA Cup.
“If those two things happen, then we’ve took what we can out of the season at this point.
“They’re the most important things.”
