Phil Thompson doesnt think Rashford will fit in under Jose Mourinho

Former England international Phil Thompson has said that he doesn't think that Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford will fit in at the Old Trafford side.

He is saying this after Rashford had a not so good performance in front of goal against Spain in the UEFA Nations League over the weekend.

He scored England's only goal in the 2-1 defeat, but had other opportunities to win the game for the Three Lions and failed to convert.

"Marcus Rashford is a very talented boy," Phil Thompson told Sky Sports News. Is he going to fit in at Manchester United? I don’t think so."

Rashford has not been featuring regularly this season, and the former Liverpool man thinks that Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho does not trust the player.

According to Thompson, this season is huge for the United academy graduate, and he will need to make a decision about his future at the end.

United will face Watford in the Premier League this weekend, but Rashford will not be part of the game as he will be serving suspension for a red card he got in the last game against Burnley.
