Man Utd legend urges Jose Mourinho to keep faith in youngster despite poor performance

The former Manchester United playmaker Paul Scholes has urged Jose Mourinho to keep faith in the youngster Marcus Rashford. Scholes expressed his views regarding Rashford live on BT Sport.

Rashford failed to impress during the Red Devils 1-0 defeat at the hands of Feyenoord in the Europa League earlier this evening.

However, Scholes has stated that the teenager done enough against Manchester City to warrant a place in United’s starting line-up this weekend. Mourinho’s side take on Watford FC as they look to bounce back from two consecutive defeats.

“I think he did enough last week in the Manchester derby,” Scholes told BT Sport.

“He gave Sagna a real tough time. He’s got great ability to run at a player. He looked like he had a goal in him.

“I think the left-hand side and right-hand side are problems for United. I don’t think those positions are set in stone for anybody. There’s a chance there.

“I think Marcus is the best one to play in that position, especially at Watford.”

Rashford burst onto the stage at United under Louis van Gaal and earned a called up to the England’s Euro 2016 squad. The 18-year-old has scored six goals in 13 games for United, including most recently a last-minute winner against Hull City in the Premier League.
