Mourinho on Man Utd fight-back: Rashford was sad; McTominay scared

Gary Neville furious that news of Jose Mourinho's imminent sacking may have been leaked

Gary Neville furious that news of Jose Mourinho's imminent sacking may have been leaked

Reports had emerged on Friday night that Mourinho would be sacked following Saturday's game with Newcastle regardless of United's result. He also said "there is something rotten to the core" at United.

Poor performances have been compounded by off-field problems during an uncomfortable start to the season at Old Trafford, with the relationship between Mourinho and star Paul Pogba making unwanted headlines.

As usual, Neville was working for Sky Sports during Brighton's 1-0 win over West Ham and after the game, Kelly Cates asked the former Manchester United defender if sacking Mourinho would be the right decision from the United board.

Amy Schumer arrested at Brett Kavanaugh protest
Comedian-actress Amy Schumer was also reportedly detained while protesting against Kavanaugh, according to MSNBC. Ratajkowski posted a photo of her during the protest on her Instagram announcing that she has been arrested.

Sources have told ESPN FC that Mourinho has been pushing for a show of support from Woodward and the Glazer family, United's owners, in recent weeks, with further efforts made this week to prompt them into a public statement of their backing.

"I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", he said.

The win warmed the heart of many United fans, and left Jose Mourinho in a more bullish mood than of late, but that hasn't ended speculation over his future.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to be sacked as Manchester United manager this weekend. Where are the values and the principles of Manchester United if this is true?

Mourinho claimed that the "man-hunting" was taking its toll on certain players and cited Scott McTominay and Marcus Rashford, who were both substituted, as two youngsters who were being particularly affected.

Manchester United fans certainly saw the irony of those three players combining to potentially save Jose Mourinho's job and they took to social media to express their feelings. I love that football club. "I worked since I was a kid - I worked for this, and I will love it until my last day, so it's one more experience in my life". Louis van Gaal was sacked the evening before a cup final [in 2016], finding out through other people. I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change; and it isn't the manager. Where they go from here as a team, is another story altogether. When you are in your own city, your own stadium, and you have 75 minutes minimum on the bus, I think that this is quite hard to accept. "If they play for the manager, they are not good professionals". Would they call out individual players?
