Jose Mourinho responds to sidelining Rashford

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has played down concerns over Marcus Rashford’s lack of game-time at Manchester United as the World Cup approaches.
Rashford has not started a league match for United since Boxing Day and has found his first-team opportunities limited following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez.

However, Mourinho insists Rashford remains firmly part of his plans at Old Trafford and he expects the 20-year-old to be part of Gareth Southgate's squad in Russia.

He said "No, I don't reassure anyone, the main reassurance for him is that he is always selected. There is not one single match when Marcus is not selected to start or to be on the bench. When I see you sometimes put in doubt if he is going to be selected for the World Cup or not be selected. You know, if the national coach trusts him, he selects him. It doesn't matter if he plays or doesn't play. There are many examples of players who don't play for their clubs at all and they go to the national teams. You have the example of Sergio Romero, who is the second goalkeeper at Manchester United and the first goalkeeper for such an amazing football country like Argentina. In your own country, you have examples of players who play even without scoring a goal in the Premier League. So, it's up to Gareth Southgate. If he trusts him, he selects him. It doesn't matter if he plays or if he doesn't play for Manchester United."
