Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho has labelled Frank de Boer the “worst manager in the history of the Premier League”, after the Dutchman criticised his handling of Marcus Rashford.
De Boer had praised Rashford after his impact in Saturday’s win over Liverpool and said it is a “pity” the 20-year-old plays under Mourinho at Old Trafford.
Reacting, Mourinho took De Boer down memory lane when the Dutchman was in charge of Crystal Palace last year.
Earlier this season, De Boer was in charge of five competitive matches as Palace boss. He lost four in the Premier League but beat Ipswich in the EFL Cup before his dismissal on September 11.
Mourinho said: “I read some quote from the worst manager in the history of the Premier League, Frank de Boer – seven matches, seven defeats, zero goals.
“He was saying that it is not good for Marcus Rashford to have a coach like me, because the most important thing for me is to win.
“If he was coached by Frank, he would learn how to lose because he lost every game.”
