Around 2016 and 2018, Jose took charge of the Red Devils, during which time Rashford was beginning to make a name for himself at Old Trafford. Under Jose, the now-Tottenham Hotspur boss had changed his performance, Rashford lifted the lid on his “tough time.”
Rashford believes that his stint under the Spurs manager has shaped him into the player that he is today, he has made 28 goals and 20 assists under Mourinho.
“It was tough but I think when you look back on it in five or six years they’re the moments that give you that mental toughness,” Rashford said according to the Manchester United Podcast.
“As an all-round player, I’ve improved a lot and a lot of it is down to those two years under Jose. We had ups and downs – when I look back at it, it was a tough period but definitely a period that made a better player,” added Rashford.
This season, Rashford has notched up 19 goals including 14 in 22 Premier League outings in all competitions for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side.
