Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is worried that Marcus Rashford will be forced to carry the burden for the England national team following numerous withdrawals from the squad due to injuries.
Having already qualified for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, England will use the upcoming international break to face off against giants Germany and Brazil in friendlies at the Wembley Stadium over the next fortnight.
Ahead of the huge double encounter though, England’s squad has been decimated by injuries and it can be revealed that the likes of Harry Kane, Dele Alli, Harry Winks and Raheem Sterling have all been ruled out due to numerous fitness related issues.
The absence of the aforementioned players means that manager Gareth Southgate is left with very few options to choose from in attack and this situation has proven to be a cause for concern for Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho as well.
According to reports from the Daily Mail, Mourinho is fearful that the lack of options for Southgate will mean that young Marcus Rashford will be given a huge burden to carry for England and the Portuguese manager is worried that the 20-year-old might pick up an injury if he is forced to start both games for the Three Lions.
