Jose Mourinho attacks media 'manhunt' after Newcastle win

Speculation over Mourinho's future has increased, but prior to kick-off he retained the support of the club.

"But we are in a position that we can do much better than that and to do that we need points". "I'm glad they're interested in me, but Inter decided on what they decided, so I cannot say anything more about it", he said.

"Mourinho has alienated players, fans and staff at Old Trafford with his divisive approach in recent months, and those in charge of the club, led by executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward, have had enough".

It was a striking remark at a time when his relationship with players is under scrutiny, but Mourinho does not believe confidence is at the root of things. "If I'm the person who employs the person underneath me and he fails, eventually I've got to take the responsibility for it".

"I said on Monday Night Football it can get to the stage where it becomes untenable and you have to make a change for everybody", Carragher continued.

"The way they started the game was absolutely panicking". 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.

"Some of boys, Marcus Rashford was sad on the pitch, Scott McTominay was scared on the pitch".

- Paul Pogba has had a hand in 29 Premier League goals under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United (13 goals, 16 assists), more than any other player. "Three draws, not the feeling of the defeat, but not the happiness of the victory - so yes it is important for us to try to win this match on Saturday".

'You put Fellaini and Alexis on, so many good players on the bench, when they come they made the difference'. The manager is always going to get the stick when the club's struggling. The opening 20 minutes of their opening day 2-1 win over Leicester remains the best they have played this term, yet the team's play is a reflection of their manager's beleaguered manner.

"If there are some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault". I have to be ready for all of this. I think a lot of wickedness and clear man-hunting in football is too much. I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life. I didn't play for a manager, I played for Liverpool and I wanted to win for myself and the club.
