Mourinho pledges to turn Man United around amid sack report

Mourinho pledges to turn Man United around amid sack report

Rafael Benitez has hailed his Newcastle United players despite the Magpies squandering a 2-0 lead to lose 3-2 against Manchester United.

Manchester United's Alexis Sanchez celebrates scoring their third goal with Marouane Fellaini on Saturday.

However, other news outlets like BBC, Sky Sports and The Guardian reported yesterday before the match that Mourinho retains the backing of the club, with the board now having no plans to remove him as manager.

But, with their weekend opponents enduring a nightmare run under Jose Mourinho, Elliott wants to see Benitez throw caution to the wind on Saturday.

Newcastle's turbulent 3-2 defeat to Man Utd leaves them 19th in the table, only kept off the bottom on goal difference from Cardiff.

There to be got at!

First up after the break, United welcome Chelsea to Old Trafford before they face Juventus twice in the Champions League and City soon after.

"First half was hard, but after the half-time rest we came back with everything and definitely that first half helped".

"At half time, I'm sure there were a lot of happy people around the world loving every moment of it, but the team spirit is very strong in here".

"If this is true, we don't know if it's true but if this is true and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow, as nearly like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom".

Mourinho's downward spiral at Old Trafford seems endless, with poor results threatening his job, whilst the woeful atmosphere amongst the players has created added pressure.

"When you have top-class players, this can happen".

And in the last of the United round-up, The Mail on Sunday say that Paul Pogba has been told he will not be allowed out of his glass cage of emotion in January, and will have to sit tight until at least the summer.

The Newcastle owner offered to take the whole first-team squad and coaching staff out for a meal at Rialto, Ponteland which was where he informed the Spaniard he would not be selling the club during this season. He wasted no time in moulding a title-winning team, but he spent the following season falling out with seemingly everyone around him and was eventually fired.
