Marcus Rashford furiously booted a dressing room door at Turf Moor after being sent off in Manchester Uniteds 2-0 win against Burnley, reports claim.

The England international saw red for a headbutt having been on the pitch for just eight minutes as a second half substitute.

Rashford retaliated after former United defender Phil Bardsley kicked out at him and Mourinho labelled him as naive for being drawn into an altercation.

The 20-year-old was furious at himself for getting himself tangled up with the Burnley full-back and he took out his frustration on a door in the dressing room, according to the Daily Mail.

I dont know what happened. I would say it was naive, Mourinho said after the win.

It was a kid and a very experienced man. Bardsleys been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy.

Emotions got the better of me, I shouldnt of [sic] reacted like that, he wrote.

Sorry to everyone at the club and all the fans.
