Text from Manchester United board reassured Mourinho over sacking reports

Newcastle can make Merson make foolish
Manchester United dismiss report Mourinho will be sacked today

07 October, 2018

Jose Mourinho has hit out at the "manhunt" that is happening to him at Manchester United, after his players effectively saved his job with a stunning comeback win over Newcastle on Saturday.

However, after a superb second-half fightback saw United grab a 90th-minute victor through Alexis Sanchez, Mourinho was at his abrasive best during the post-match interview.

The pre-match talk was dominated by Mourinho's future, with the club insisting they will remain patient with their manager, dismissing reports he would be sacked after the game.

After weeks of speculation and scrutiny, the Daily Mirror reported this morning the 55-year-old would be axed irrespective of the outcome of tomorrow's Premier League clash with Newcastle.

He told talkSPORT: "The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone [been sacked]".

"I really don't. I don't think they are good enough".

Asked if it would be the right decision to sack Mourinho, he said after a long pause: "No". I am mature. I am a big boy, but clearly, some of the boys - Marcus Rashford was sad on the pitch; Scott McTominay was scared on the pitch.

Paul Pogba vs. Jose Mourinho
Wolves equalised at Old Trafford on Saturday after Pogba was easily dispossessed in the centre-circle. Mourinho claims there is no war with Pogba , commenting: "No fall out, no problems at all".

"The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season, but gave them very, very close results and very hard matches for the opposition".

"The first half was a hard moment for us, but we were more aggressive in the second half and we played more direct and created more chances".

'I have to be ready for all of this. "Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world and I think at this moment in time any manager in the world would struggle at that football club with the way that the recruitment is handled, the way in which it is operated".

Mourinho refused to name names when pushed on who else was at fault for United's form but did say: "The same people that were to blame with the fantastic season of last season". "It is the life I love and since I was kid I work for this".

Sanchez's victor also saw United supporters, who had been muted in their backing for Mourinho to that point, sing his name out loud around Old Trafford.

The Red Devils still find themselves six points behind leaders Manchester City and Liverpool though, who both have a game in hand, and have a tough run of fixtures to come.
