Marcus Rashford says Jose Mourinho helped him become spot-kick ‘savvy’

Credit: Football Writers’ Association Marcus Rashford has revealed how a talk from former Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho helped him become more ‘savvy’ in the penalty area. After watching Liverpool beaten 1-0 at Southampton, where he felt striker Sadio Mane should have been awarded a spot-kick, Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp said United had been given “more penalties in two years than I had in five-and-a-half years” in charge. Rashford received the Football Writers’ Association 2021 Tribute Award on Thursday, and in a wide-ranging interview, was asked about why United might be perceived to getting more than their fair share of penalties.
