    Slaven Bilic makes big claim about England’s Marcus Rashford

    Playing enough

    Manchester United and England player Marcus Rashford is playing too much football according to Slaven Bilic, who counteracted the usual claim that the forward doesn’t play enough for Manchester United under Jose Mourinho.

    Bilic made it very clear that he doesn’t want to see Rashford burning out – something that many young players have done before – and it seems that he thinks staying at Manchester United would be the best thing Rashford could do at the minute.

    He said to the BBC:  “We had a small talk about whether he should leave Manchester United.

    “And I said ‘no way, you are not leaving United at that age and you are playing.’

    “He doesn’t start every game, but he has been involved in every competition – maybe he even played too many games.

    “He is playing under Mourinho for the biggest clubs in the world – why would you leave? Prove yourself there.”

    Rashford could well be in line for a start when it comes to England’s next game against Panama, with Dele Alli a big doubt after picking up an injury in the win over Tunisia.

    Gareth Southgate isn’t in a position where he has to risk Dele, given the strength of the squad he took to the World Cup, and it may be the case that Rashford comes in for Raheem Sterling and Ruben Loftus-Cheek takes the place left vacant by Dele in a shake-up, as England look to get through their group with one game to spare.
