EPL: FA to investigate Mourinho over comments after Newcastle win

Zidane is still the hot favourite to become the next Manchester United manager but his agent has said that he is unlikely to manage in the Premier League. He felt the need to haul off Eric Bailly after just 18 minutes at Old Trafford on Saturday following a shocking start that saw the hosts 2-0 behind to Newcastle inside 10 minutes.

Mourinho is subsequently expected to be in charge of United's visit to Chelsea after the global break.

After the match, I asked Mourinho about his reaction to the atmosphere.

Meanwhile, United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward is "loathe to axe Mourinho" because it would mean a third sacking at the club since Alex Ferguson retired in 2013, and of course there's also the question of money.

"The tension at Old Trafford has largely been inflicted by their own manager".

"Yet they are completely different players this season because they are constantly hearing their manager telling them they are not good enough". They had less reason to decide it after a win, but what would have happened if United had lost or even drawn, making it only one win from six home games?

It didn't get any better when United came out for the second half. I said the same thing when Louis van Gaal was there. After years of winning nearly every home game, United are so unpredictable these days that you don't have a clue what to expect - in a way, it makes the United soap opera even more gripping - but no one expected United to be 2-0 down to winless Newcastle inside the opening 10 minutes. It is the life I love and since I was a kid I work for this'. You knew United would have all the ball in the world. He spent all summer groaning about a lack of support in the transfer market, then talked about how he had overachieved with last year's squad, one of the most expensive ever put together.
