Gareth Southgate has actually compared Marcus Rashford to Cristiano Ronaldo

The 20-year-old showed his potential with two good displays against Spain and Switzerland

And Sutton believes the United youth product, who burst onto the scene in 2016, should leave Old Trafford and find somewhere where he is the main man.

"I think I can expect that Sunday I'm going to be highly criticised for not playing him because some of the boys are really obsessed with me and some of them have a problem with some compulsive lies", added Mourinho.

"We have to remember that I don't think Harry, at that age, had hardly played anywhere near the matches for Spurs, really".

Rashford was one of few bright sparks for Southgate, scoring both England's goals in a 2-1 defeat to Spain and 1-0 victory over Switzerland in the past week.

Rashford is up against the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Alexis Sanchez and Anthony Martial for a Red Devils starting spot.

He scored two in two this worldwide break. They have to try and win matches.

Southgate also insists the 20-year-old is further down the line in development terms than fellow striker Kane, who was farmed out on loan four times by Tottenham as a youngster before making the breakthrough at age 21. "More of a concern is the young players who might be coming through to challenge that are not getting an opportunity to play".

"Everybody's getting frustrated as he's not playing much, but he is playing for England".


Ruben Loftus-Cheek is another of England's squad that advanced to the semi-finals of the World Cup struggling for minutes at Chelsea.

Gareth Southgate has expressed frustration about Phil Foden's lack of first-team involvement for Manchester City and warned England's senior players they can not expect to keep their places if they are not involved more regularly for their club sides.

"I don't think there is trust from the manager to the player that he can do it on a regular basis".

Gareth Southgate saying Rashford can be England's version of Ronaldo because of his goalscoring rate being way ahead of someone of his age.

"The most important thing of all is that the kid is a good kid, a good player, knows what Manchester United did for him, starting in the academy, then Mr Van Gaal's support, my support, the club's support, a new contract, new shirt, and selected for every single match".

"Since I was here, he was never one day out for selection because of my decision, only if injured or suspended".

"He is not going to give up trying to prove himself at United but he knows he may have a big decision to make soon".
