'I'd Be Livid' - Gary Lineker Criticises Mourinho's Reaction After Rashford Miss

Manchester United's Champions League campaign continues with a home tie tonight against Swiss side Young Boys. Jose Mourinho opted to start Marcus Rashford as the lone striker with Jesse Lingard and Anthony Martial on either wing.

However, the Portuguese boss has been criticized for his reaction to a Rashford miss early in the first half. A quick break saw the English striker squander a decent opportunity and it prompted Jose Mourinho to spin around towards the crowd, hold his hands out and shake his head.

Speaking on BT Sport, former England striker Gary Lineker said "as a centre-forward, if I saw my manager react like that I would be absolutely livid." Rio Ferdinand also criticised the move while over on RTE Sport, Damien Duff suggested it is not what you want to see from a manager towards a young player.

It also prompted a lively debate online, with fans divided between those who felt it was needlessly harsh and those who feel it is standard practice.
