Mourinho's United deliver comeback win over Newcastle

But there is something rotten to the core.

Jose Mourinho's days as Manchester United manager may be numbered after recent results, but a comeback win on Saturday may give him a lifeline as he looks to get things back on track.

As usual, Neville was working for Sky Sports during Brighton's 1-0 win over West Ham and after the game, Kelly Cates asked the former Manchester United defender if sacking Mourinho would be the right decision from the United board.

But, once again, Mourinho said this would be a "difficult season" - a tune he has been singing since the pre-season tour of the United States.

The paper says elsewhere that United will have to cough up £29 million in order to get rid of the Portuguese manager now, which is a testament to how well Ed Woodward has managed the club in his time in charge.

Jose Mourinho was under huge pressure before Manchester United's game with Newcastle United, never mind when they were 2-0 down, so it's no surprise he shouted with relief after the final whistle.

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.

Democrats and Republicans appeared to agree, at least superficially, on one thing: The behaviour of senators has been unbecoming. He led Trump's commission that investigated voter fraud - ultimately failing to uncover evidence to back the President's claims.

The move amounts to a back-me-or-sack-me plea, amid reports that he will be dismissed as manager after the game regardless of the result.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho criticised "man-hunting" and "wickedness" against him and his team and said young players such as Marcus Rashford and Scott McTominay were struggling to deal with the pressure.

Alexis Sanchez's victor was a sign of desire, and for United's sake you have to hope that will now motivate him to be the player we know he is - not the shadow he's been. I think that is clear. I love that football club.

Zidane would likely be a popular choice given his incredible European success at Madrid, and the eye-catching brand of football he had the Spanish giants playing, a stark contrast to the pragmatic style United fans have become accustomed to under Mourinho.

United need a manager who will bring attractive football to the club, so who better than one of the true innovators of the style? It's hard running a football club, managing a football club, playing in a football team.

Manchester City will have to break their own transfer record as they chase Tanguy Ndombele. The people in the boardroom who are overseeing the football operation are nowhere near good enough. "So I think it's a ridiculous talk".
