Mourinho tags former Crystal Palace Manager as worst in Premier League history
Manchester United Manager, Jose Mourinho has mocked former Crystal Palace Manager, Frank de Boer tagging him as the worst the Premier League has ever seen after the Dutchman questioned his handling of Marcus Rashford.
The young England International scored two brilliant goals as he stole the show in United’s 2-1 Premier League victory over rivals, Liverpool on Saturday in his first start since December.
De Boer, who was fired from his position as Palace manager last September after going seven games without scoring a single goal or securing a point, said it was a pity that the young sensation had a manager like Mourinho as he believes that the former Chelsea Manager will frustrate the progress he [Rashford] has enjoyed in recent seasons.
However, Mourinho had enough time to answer De Boer’s criticism of his methods when he addressed a news conference ahead of United’s Champions League Round of 16 second-leg showdown with Sevilla seemingly holding De Boer responsible for Palace’s terrible run which finally came to an end after he [De Boer] was fired and Roy Hodgson was appointed.
“I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer,” Mourinho began. “Seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals.
“He was saying it is not good for Marcus Rashford to have to be coached by me.
“If Frank coached him he would learn how to lose because he lost every game.”
