Nemanja Matic believes United will be buoyed by their win over Liverpool

The former Crystal Palace manager told BT Sport that it is "a pity" Rashford plays under Mourinho after the England global marked his first league start of the year with both goals against Liverpool.

The Special One masterminded a 2-1 win over Liverpool at the weekend that saw his Red Devils move four points clear of Tottenham in the race for second place in the Premier League.

He's a player, he's very young, he needs games, but he's so talented.

De Boer suggested Mourinho was not the right manager to nurture Rashford's talents, with Mourinho quick to pour scorn on the views of a coach who has failed in his last two jobs at Inter Milan and Palace.

In answer, the Portuguese said: "I read something, some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League - Frank de Boer".

José Mourinho has given a withering critique of Frank de Boer, describing the former Crystal Palace manager as "the worst manager in the history of the Premier League".

"If he was coached by Frank he would be coached how to lose because he lost every game", he said. Of course, with Marcus, I have to be honest and give the credit to the people in the academy who were responsible for his formation; I have to leave credit to Louis van Gaal, who was responsible for his first season in the first team. He wants to get results.

What a ridiculous concept, especially when the slightest bit of homework would have made them realise just how important Rashford is to Mourinho and United.

"We are not one of the best teams in the competition but when a team arrives in the last eight, anything can happen", added Mourinho.

You could see he wasn't right - everything which was easy for him previously became a difficulty and Rashford's natural game had vanished as a outcome of not having a rest.

Although the Liverpool game was Rashford's first league start this year, he has played 39 games for United this season has scored 12 goals.

The Frenchman was absent during the part of Monday's training session observed by the media, but Mourinho said Pogba joined the workout after that and has not been completely ruled out.

Midfielder Michael Carrick, meanwhile, has announced his intention to retire at the end of the season. "That's pretty much where I'm at".

Carrick is set to join United's coaching staff in the summer.
