Jose Mourinho has sung the praises of Marcus Rashford and claimed he won’t be buying another striker in January because he has faith in the youngster

Rashford came off the bench in United’s 2-1 win over Middlesbrough when we were still a goal behind. He made some great runs in to the box and should have won a penalty. 

Mourinho has confirmed he’s a big fan of the player and is happy with the progress he’s making. 

The biggest trust I give him is when I told you that I don’t want another striker. I don’t want one. Why? Because I have Rashford.

He’s always there. He’s always selected, he’s on the team, he’s on the bench when he doesn’t start. He comes on and he has different kinds of experiences.

What happened to him last season was really fast and was a consequence of a situation that we are not having this season.

He’s fine. He’s going in the right direction. He’s a good kid, a good professional with the right mentality. He’s always ready to learn and improve. This kid is going in the right direction.

He knows he’s learning every day and understands that. By being with the team, being in training with the team and even being on the bench and playing sometimes when we play counter-attacking football.

I’ve no problem with him at all. He’s a proper professional. I pick him because he can play in so many positions. I like to rotate attacking players.
