Jose Mourinho has revealed that Marcus Rashford asked to be subbed moments before he took him off in Manchester United's draw with Southampton.

The Red Devils boss started the England international up front against the Saints, but he picked up a knock towards the end of the fixture, and was eventually replaced by Anthony Martial.

Mourinho praised the youngster's spirit in his post-game comments, and explained how he wasn't prepared to risk him suffering a serious injury by keeping him on the pitch.

After the match the Red Devils boss told BT Sport: "Fatigue, [Rashford] was injured, he was asking to come out.

"It was not that kind of injury, some players with that kind of injury do not play for two weeks but Marcus, I am pretty sure will be fine for the next one.

"But it's one kick here, one kick there, one fall here, one fall there. Fatigue, lots of running, lots of movement, 75 minutes and he was done and we tried then with Martial replacing him."

Mourinho praised the youngster's spirit in his post-game.

He added: "I would say Marcus Rashford was a mad dog until he was very, very tired and with little problems. That appetite, that desire, that fire you have, you need that to recover the ball faster and to recover the ball higher on the pitch."
