Jose Mourinho wouldnt hide his frustration at Marcus Rashford during Manchester Uniteds dramatic 1-0 win over Young Boys Bern and he aimed a dig at the young forward for his lack of goals after the match.

The Portuguese cut a concerned figure on the touchline throughout the match, and was visibly dismayed at an early missed opportunity from the 21-year-old forward.

Racing through on goal, Rashford attempted to chip the onrushing goalkeeper but sent his chip over the bar, which saw his manager shake his head and make vexed gestures.

And while he was satisfied with the efforts of the youngster, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss couldnt resist pointing out Rashfords failing in front of goal.

When asked if he was happy with what Rashford had brought to the team, he chimed: But the most important thing, which is a goal.

Goals win matches. Im happy with the intensity the boy has put into the game.

Im happy with the way we started, that was exactly our intention. Its not easy with the boys to cope with the frustration and pressure of a result that doesnt suit us. Obviously the most important thing is to qualify.

While he was frustrated with Rashfords lack of goals, he wouldnt criticise the England international for his early missed opportunity.

More than just one chance, he added. We had what I call half chances a lot.

When a winger has the ball 20 metres to attack the defender by the box who has the fear of a penalty, he has to beat a defender one against one at least once. Its not the point to blame at least one player.
