This has also been dismissed by the club.

'The only thing I said to the players is that they did a great job, we have to manage situations better but to be fair they were pushing and pushing, they have so mnay good players it was hard. And to sit and moan and say "oh they're hunting me" and "it's wickedness"...

Gary Neville has launched an extraordinary broadside at Manchester United after reports broke on Friday night that the club was going to sack Jose Mourinho.

Sky Sports pundit Neville criticised the white-collars at United for their handling of the club post-Sir Alex Ferguson, chiefly regarding their treatment of managers and player recruitment. Jose Mourinho is unable to control his squad with some players wanting him to be sacked immediately.

"I am 55 years old and spite of this, this is the first time in football I see a manhunt", he added.

There were boos at half-time as Rafael Benitez's winless Newcastle led, having scored twice in the opening 10 minutes at Old Trafford. "I couldn't argue with what he said".

" I can deal with getting hunted".

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

"But not victories at home in the past three matches - three draws, not the feeling of the defeat but not the happiness of the victory, so yes it's important for us to try to win this match on Saturday".

If recent history has taught us anything, it's that the third season in Jose Mourinho's tenure is always the one where both parties break off the relationship.

'When you play against a very good team it's not easy because every substitution they were better and better.

"[We have had] recovering time for the players that played against Valencia and good work for the others that obviously were in flawless condition to train", Mourinho added. United may be the overwhelming favourites at [1.43] to beat Newcastle today, but even so if they do overcome the Magpies; 13 points after eight matches is still an unsatisfactory return for a club of United's stature.

"If there are some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault". I absolutely love it to death, it's been my life. I think about how the club's been operated.
