Mourinho fears worst with Ibrahimovic, Rojo injuries

21 Avril 2017

As the full-time whistle blew at Old Trafford, it's very likely that not even the most critical Manchester United supporter would care about the performance levels of Mourinho's men against Anderlecht.

Manchester United's Zlatan Ibrahimovic leaves the field with an injury.

Marcus Rashford then fired the decisive victor in the 107th minute on a night where United copped serious injuries to Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Marcos Rojo.

"[Rashford] can not play every game and, at the top of that, [England] are trying to take him for the European under-something tournament, no?"

Speaking on BBC Sport's 606 podcast, Wright said: "I champion Marcus Rashford all the time because he gives them an edge and the pace".

"He hadn't scored since September, some players don't understand what I want but Marcus I trust. He is fantastic in his effort". Back then, he hit eight goals in 18 appearances as an unknown rookie and earned himself a call-up to England's Euro 2016 squad.

Who impressed and who disappointed for Manchester United against Anderlecht?

Moments later, Marcus Rashford popped up with the goal that took United into the final four of the Europa League.

In case you didn't know. . "I'm 100% sure that she'll be the most successful female wrestler of all time", Del Rio said in February.

But Mourinho has largely stood by Rashford, believing that his pace and direct running offer more than goals, but also the ability to stretch opponents and create space for others.

The 19-year-old has been in fine form for Jose Mourinho's men this season and has been a regular fixture in the Red Devils' first team.

But the 3-2 aggregate success came at a price, with Ibrahimovic and Rojo both seemingly set for extended spells on the sideline after being taken off.

Keane, speaking on ITV, went on to suggest how Rashford can improve.

Rashford had been frustrated before scoring the victor, making a mess of a one-on-one opportunity with Anderlecht's goalkeeper Ruben and firing another chance into the side netting from close range after being played in by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who limped off at the end of the 90 minutes with an apparent injury. "For the team, you have to do everything".

United sealed a place in today's draw for the last four two minutes into the second period of extra time when a composed turn by Rashford paved the way for him rifling a low left-footed shot beyond Ruben.

He is still a kid, with his 20th birthday not until Halloween, but Mourinho knows this kid has the ability to perform beyond his years.
