- Jose Mourinho is worried about the number of games Marcus Rashford is playing
- The young striker has played in 17 games already this season
- He is in contention to play both of England's matches against Germany and Brazil
Jose Mourinho is worried Marcus Rashford could burn out easily because he has been playing too many matches this season.
The 20-year-old has featured 17 times for United this season and has also been involved with all of England's world cup qualifiers since the start of the season.
Mourinho is worried that going into the busy December period in the EPL, losing Rashford to injury will be a big damage to United's title ambitions.
Mancheste United and Mourinho are aware that some of their rivals have pulled some of their important players out of the England squad for the friendly against Germany and Brazil.
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 Three Lions squad.
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 England boss is left with just three options in the striking department, United's Marcus Rashford, Leicester City's Jamie Vardy and uncapped on loan Chelsea striker Tammy Abraham.
The Three Lions are among the teams that'll be in Russia in 2018 after securing qualification to the football fiesta.
