Jose Mourinho 'immediate sacking' rumours dismissed by Manchester United

United were staring at a fifth straight game without a win, in all competitions, after Newcastle scored twice in the opening ten minutes.

"Today, you have to give credit to Man United".

It stunned the United fans in attendance and forced Mourinho into a series of tactical substitutions, making the first one less than 20 minutes into the game.

Mourinho claimed United had overachieved in finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, and said he always expected this campaign to be more hard.

Man United will be hoping to dispatch with Benitez's men, if only to quell talk of this season's derailment with less than the first fifth of the full fixture list out of the way.

Blanc also has a history at Old Trafford having played for Manchester United for two seasons in the early 00s, so despite that being a relatively short period of time one could argue that he already has an understanding of the culture at the club.

He starts by saying: "I'm furious from three or four years ago when David Moyes was sacked and it was broken a day before to journalists".

Protesters urge Senators to vote 'no' on Kavanaugh as decision looms
About 100 anti-Kavanaugh protesters climbed the Capitol's East Steps as the vote approached, pumping fists and waving signs. The allegations against Kavanaugh elicited conversations about the #MeToo movement that could reach into the future.

"He is a key player, a good player and he plays in the right position, but for me he isn't a real leader like (Steven) Gerrard".

Mourinho made another switch at the break - taking off McTominay and bringing on Marouane Fellaini, with another midfielder Nemanja Matic asked to partner Chris Smalling at the back. They way they start the game was absolutely panicking.

The former World Cup victor could also be key in unlocking the potential of fellow French man Paul Pogba, whom Mourinho reportedly fell out with amidst a string of poor performances.

The former England full-back added: "Eventually I've got to stand up and say, "look, I'm not good enough to do this".

"Enough is enough for me". It's been my life, it's given me everything and I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change, and it isn't the manager.

Jose Mourinho: No, I was advised by the structure of the club that from the hotel to the training ground it would be probably a minimum of 75 minutes. It's hard running a football club, managing a football club, playing in a football team.

"I'm furious at thinking this has broken out". They're playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world. It's my life, it's a life I love, it's a life I worked since I was a kid.
