Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is concerned over Marcus Rashford’s workload during his international break with England, according to reports.
The 18-year-old has already made 17 appearances for United in all competitions this season and is now set to feature prominently in England’s upcoming friendlies against Germany and Brazil.
The Daily Mail reports that Mourinho is anxious about the ‘load’ placed on his United players during this current break, in particular with Rashford who may not be rested by Gareth Southgate due to England’s limited attacking options.
The report also claims that the United boss is fully aware that Manchester City, Tottenham and Liverpool have already withdrawn players.
Manchester City duo Raheem Sterling and Fabian Delph withdrew from the England squad on Tuesday along with Liverpool captain Jordan Henderson.
Tottenham’s Harry Kane, Dele Alli and Harry Winks have also pulled out of the squad.
Mourinho and United head into the international break following a 1-0 defeat to Chelsea which has left them eight points behind leaders City in the Premier League table.
