English Premier League

Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford has revealed the advice he got from Jose Mourinho about winning penalties.

Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp recently revealed that United have been given more penalties than the Reds side since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

Mourinho has previously aimed a couple jibes at United and Bruno Fernandes for their penalty record this season, but Rashford has revealed Mourinho told him to be more savvy when winning penalties.

"As a forward line, we want to go and score goals, when you are making runs in behind or dribbling with the ball and if you see a challenge coming, you don't want to get tackled because you are looking at an opportunity to score a goal," Rashford told the FWA.

"There is no way you are going to let somebody take the ball off you, so, for me, it is just a case of us wanting to score goals and the teams wanting to defend goals and penalties can happen. There have been times when we have probably not got penalties.

"I remember when Jose was manager, there were five or six times where I should have had a penalty and Jose ended up saying to me: 'If you are not savvy about the way you do it, then you are not going to get given it.'

"After that, we started to get a few penalties. It was something in terms of development you have to learn that and understand it."
