Jose Mourinho taught Manchester United players how to win more penalties during his time in charge at Old Trafford, Marcus Rashford has claimed.
The Red Devils have been awarded a remarkable 42 spot kicks since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho in December 2018.

But it was the former United boss, and now Tottenham manager, Mourinho who taught the players how to be ‘savvier’ in getting more penalties.
“There have been times when we have probably not got penalties,” he said.
“I remember when Jose was manager, there were five or six times where I should have had a penalty and he ended up saying to me, ‘If you are not savvy about the way you do it, then you are not going to get it’.
“After that, we started to get a few penalties. It was something you have to learn and understand.

“When you are making runs in behind or dribbling with the ball and you see a challenge coming, you don’t want to get tackled because you are looking at an opportunity to score a goal.
“It is just a case of us wanting to score goals and the teams wanting to defend goals — penalties can happen.”

United are currently top of the Premier League and three points ahead of rivals Liverpool.
They face Jurgen Klopp’s side this weekend with a chance to go six points clear if they get the win at Anfield.

“For me, there’s no sweeter feeling than scoring against Liverpool or Manchester City,” Rashford added.
“There’s no bigger games for a kid from Manchester to score goals in, so it’s definitely a game I’m looking forward to.
“It’s going to be a good feeling if we manage to win the League. If we finish second or third, it’s not going to have been a good season for us.
“We are more dangerous, we can score goals at any time. But it’s a start. We can do much better. We have an unbelievable connection.”
