Mourinho cools talk of Rashford and Martial unrest at Manchester United

It’s good that Marcus Rashford might be thinking about Man Utd exit – Ian Wright

Mourinho has previously responded to similar concerns about Rashford by saying that the England worldwide does not need to be making regular starts at club level in order to secure a place in Gareth Southgate's squad.

"We can not have 11 players, it would be awesome economically for the football clubs to have only 11 players and play always with the same 11, no injuries, no suspension, no fatigue".

Mourinho revealed that he has no concerns over his players becoming complacent after their superb 3-2 victory over local rivals Man City last weekend, and stated that he has been happy with his squads application in training this week.

He stressed that he can only give eleven players a starting spot amongst a squad of 22.

"If I was you I would ask why [Romelu] Lukaku plays every match, why [Nemanja] Matic plays every match", the United manager said when queried about Martial's concerns over his lack of playing time.

When asked about the England global, Mourinho said: "If I was you, I would go in another direction. They know that. Everybody knows, they know and they still smell a chance, but every match that is played, if they don't get points, then they are closer to relegation, but I think they still believe that mathematically it's possible".

Asked whether Martial and Marcus Rashford should be thinking about leaving, Wright added: "They should be thinking about it with everything that's happening and the way United play".

Both Rashford and Martial will hope to start for Mourinho in the match.

Mourinho also confirmed that Rashford is the only player who have made the most appearance since the Portuguese manager arrived at the club.

Both players are reportedly facing uncertain futures at United, but Mourinho defended his recent team selections by highlighting the depth of his squad.

Rashford has been in good form when he has played this season, netting 12 goals and providing nine assists in all competitions.

United host West Brom at Old Trafford on Sunday, looking to cement their grip on second place in the table.

A report in The Mirror earlier this week claimed that Rashford is frustrated at not playing regularly for Jose Mourinho's side and could leave in the summer transfer window. During the week I was trying to fight that result by working well and hard, trying to make the players understand that it is not enough to deserve to finish second.
