Marcus Rashford reveals how Jose Mourinho thought Man United how to win more penalties

Manchester United forward, Marcus Rashford, has revealed that Jose Mourinho urged him to be more ‘savvy’ in order to win more penalties for Manchester United.

Jurgen Klopp mocked United’s high penalty count earlier this month by claiming that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side had won more spot-kicks in the last two years than his Liverpool side had been given since he became manager at Anfield in 2015.
