Manchester United take on Chelsea in the FA Cup final today, with Marcus Rashford selected to start given the ankle concerns around Romelu Lukaku. However, beyond that Jermaine Jenas feels Jose Mourinho's recent treatment of Rashford has been 'disgusting.'
Jose Mourinho was a vocal critic of his players after they succumbed to a 1-0 loss against Brighton. Speaking to the press after that game, Mourinho said "I wouldn't say disappointed because I know them, but I thought for some of them the possibility to start the game, the possibility to give reason to the ones during the season who critics say, 'Why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku? Why always Lukaku? You have the answer."
Speaking on BBC 5 live, Jenas slammed Mourinho's comments as 'disgusting.'
I found what he did after that Brighton game disgusting, I really did. I think when you are managing a young player like Marcus Rashford as well... It was always like he enjoyed the failure.

Already this season Frank de Boer and Thierry Henry suggested that Rashford should consider leaving United to find regular game time. He does have a big opportunity today, while a late fitness test has allowed Lukuku to make the bench. The full Manchester United team is as follows:
