United Fans Raging As They Trail To Newcastle 2-0 At Half

Mourinho looks done

Manchester United have dismissed reports Jose Mourinho will be sacked this weekend regardless of Saturday's result against Newcastle.

Nevertheless, the visit of Newcastle looked the ideal opportunity to get the club back on track and especially when you consider Rafael Benitez's men hadn't won in the league all season. Newcastle are without a win all season, and with the dastardly Mike Ashley still in situ, they continue to do a passable impression of fictional perennial crisis club Harchester United.

Mourinho reacted by making Eric Bailly the fall guy - subbing the Ivorian off after just 19 minutes in place of Juan Mata.

Mourinho jogged down the tunnel at half-time to considerable applause from the home fans, who should have been celebrating a goal five minutes after the restart, when Nemanja Matic blazed over the bar with the goal gaping after Martin Dubravka denied Paul Pogba.

The game quickly became something of a soap opera and it was inevitable that the fans became a part of the narrative, expressing their feelings with a number of chants.

While the Magpies boss' tactics may have not racked up the points, by adapting a defensive style when playing the so-called big sides in the league, he frustrates and forces them to play to their best to get any sort of a positive result.

And they have been handed a boost in their pursuit of three points with the news that the Red Devils will be without three key players for the televised clash.

Former United defender Gary Neville hit out at the board amid the reports Mourinho was to be sacked.

"This is the fourth manager in six years, so you have to start looking at the people who appoint the manager".

"If I'm the person who employs the guy underneath me and he fails, eventually I've got to take responsibility for it". I used to say in my football memories that one day I beat Liverpool in Anfield 4-1 and I was amazed with the stadium singing Liverpool songs, I was amazed and full of respect by that. "It's the people who are bringing in the players and sanctioning the deals, the people who are overspending on players, the people who are allowing the tail to wag the dog". They are not qualified.

Sources at United have told ESPN FC that they believe Mourinho to be increasingly unhappy and ill-tempered at the club. Zinedine Zidane is the clear favourite to replace him.
