Manchester United star Marcus Rashford has admitted it was a “tough period” playing under former Red Devils boss Jose Mourinho during his time at Old Trafford, which he believes has helped him improve as a player.
However, the England international feels he benefited from the experience and the “mental toughness” he has developed has helped Rashford become the player he is now.
“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 told UTD Podcast.
“As an all-round player, I’ve improved a lot and a lot 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 me a better player.”
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho and Rashford has flourished this season under the guidance of the Norwegian.
The 22-year-old has scored 19 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions this campaign, 15 of which came from the wing and he scored four in nine games as a centre-forward.
