Man Utd's midfielder to retire at end of the season

Jose Mourinho Paul Pogba

But the tough games do not stop for United, as they are back in action this week when they welcome Spanish giants Sevilla in the Round of 16 second-leg of the Champions League this week.

"We are going to give everything we have out on the field because, apart from it being a huge game, afterwards there is an worldwide break and that will give us a chance to recover".

Rashford hadn't scored for United prior to the game since December, but was trusted by manager Jose Mourinho to form part of a front-three trident with Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez.

The pair's meeting in the Old Trafford tunnel after the game suggests that's far from the case, yet claims that the ex-Juventus man has struggled in United's midfield recently certainly isn't gossip.

"We were worth the win", United manager Jose Mourinho said.

"It is special for me and for the club because it has been 60 years that the team has not been able to play in that round".

Sevilla coach Vincenzo Montella was also keen to move on from Saturday's 2-0 loss to Valencia and focus on a potentially historic European tie.

"We are still in the competition and we have the second leg coming up", he said.

"Hopefully, fingers crossed, we can get through this round and look forward to going as far as we can, getting to the final and hopefully win it".

Manchester United are adamant to return to the glory days they are renowned for, both in England and in Europe.

"We need to take the confidence from this game into future games".

"Today, a big game, probably he didn't expect it, but we trusted him and thought the game adapted to his qualities".

Following Manchester United's 2-1 win over Liverpool on Saturday, Mourinho was asked by the press about Sanchez. Rashford has experienced the kind of inconsistency many his age show but the 20-year-old offered a timely reminder of his brilliance against Liverpool to also prove to Mourinho he can be relied upon in the big moments.

However, Rashford insists he is learning more on the training ground from his boss than on the pitch on matchday.

"In training is where I'm doing most of my learning".

"And I remember him clearly in the meetings in the dressing room, at halftime, eating every word, listening to everything".

Much of the pre-match talk centred around how United were going to cope with Liverpool's in-form front three of Sadio Mane, Roberto Firmino and the league's joint-top scorer Mohamed Salah.

"The most important thing is sticking together as a squad".
