Jose Mourinho on deploying Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at the same time


Strikers Marcus Rashford and Zlatan Ibrahimovic can play together at Manchester United, manager Jose Mourinho insists.

The Englishman was the hero for the Red Devils as he scored the only goal of the game against Hull City on Saturday afternoon.

He didn't feature regularly in this first part of the season but the Portuguese says he has the talent to play alongside the Swede.

"Marcus [Rashford] is working extremely well and both times when the team was in trouble and needed one goal," Mourinh told BT Sport and MUTV.

"The Community Shield with the score at 1-1 and today when the score was 0-0 he came on and gave a special contribution. Everybody is speaking about him and Ibra [Zlatan Ibrahimovic] – they can play together as they showed today.

"I think with more work he can play coming from one of the sides but I think the kid is a striker and when we play with him and Ibra together we give different problems to the opposition.

"Sometimes Ibra drops back because he already likes to play with the ball at his feet and Marcus is fast and has appetite to attack the last line. We tried everything."
