We really do feel for Marcus Rashford.
Because believe you me, the Man United youngster discovered the full scale of Jose Mourinho’s wrath in the dressing room at half-time.
In the first-half of United’s clash against Brighton, the 20-year-old had a golden opportunity to set-up teammate Anthony Martial for the opener with an easy-as-you-like tap-in from close-range.
On the 26th minute, Rashford was gifted the ball on the right-flank and ran straight into Brighton’s box.
And with two defenders closing in, the England starlet just had to square the ball to an expectant Martial who was wide open at the far post.
But instead, he decided to hold the ball up and go for it himself.
Martial was well in space and open for the pull-back, but Rashford hesitated and almost certainly denied them a goal-scoring opportunity – as Brighton’s defence easily cleared their lines.
It was another poor decision from the youngster and only goes to show why Mourinho isn’t keen on giving him that regular starting role in the team.
Former United favourite Gary Neville summed it up in the commentary box, saying: “Rashford had to play it to Martial, he had to.
“He’s made a mess of it, I really don’t know why he hasn’t pulled it back. Mourinho’s angry and he should be”.
And he’s not wrong.
Mourinho was clearly furious on the touchline and no doubt gave him a stern telling off at half-time.
Prepare for a bit of that old hairdryer treatment, Marcus.
