“Now we have stability” – Man United No.10 aims dig at Jose Mourinho

Manchester United forward Marcus Rashford has aimed a dig at former boss Jose Mourinho ahead of the new Premier League season.

The Portuguese manager was removed from his position at the Old Trafford helm last December after a series of poor results, with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer then taking over.

Speaking to The Times, the 21-year-old England international claimed that there is a more settled dressing room under the Norwegian than there was when Mourinho was in charge.

Rashford said: “He (Solskjaer) has brought stability. In the past three years, you were never sure about anything.

“Now we have stability. Everyone’s in a good mood, a good place. It’s a completely different environment to what it has been, it feels back like normal.” Added the English forward.

Meanwhile, former United midfielder Paul Scholes has claimed that the Red Devils should have signed Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen during the summer transfer window.

Eriksen – out of contract at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium at the end of this season – was linked with a move to United before the window slammed shut on Thursday.

“I was quite excited when Christian Eriksen got mentioned,’ Scholes told BBC Sport. “He could have made a big difference to United in the way [Kevin] De Bruyne plays for City, creating chances and scoring goals.”

The 27-year-old scored 10 times and contributed 17 assists in 51 appearances for Tottenham during the 2018-19 campaign.
