Mourinho says 'manhunt' against him affecting Manchester United players

The Independent claim, however, that Mourinho could still be sacked. These are not words we are accustomed to hearing in relation to footballers.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has revealed what his manager José Mourinho said to his side as they were 2-0 down at half-time against Newcastle United, before their impressive comeback to win the game 3-2. The truth, however, lies somewhat closer to home. "Even older players commit mistakes that are not normal. You put in doubt the honesty and professionalism of the players", he added.

"We all know one swallow doesn't make a summer", he told the BBC. It is no place for faint hearts and uncertain minds.

An animated Mourinho reacted with fury, screaming at his players and gesticulating wildly.

None of them will be getting carried away. He is not playing especially well, in some periods, but, when the team doesn't play especially well, it's hard for players individually to perform well.

United went into the game without a win in their last four games in all competitions and began the day with their fewest points in the top flight after seven games since 1989. "We have problems and if you want to hide it, I am not the one to hide it", admitted Mourinho.

"I think life is made of experiences and some are new and some are deja vu".

SpaceX rocket launch causes social media stir in Southern California
A Space X Falcon 9 rocket was set to take off from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California around 7:21 p.m. PDT, or Monday, October 8 at 2:21 UTC, and the satellite will be deployed about 12 minutes after launch.

The hosts pushed for a goal, with Marcus Rashford missing a great chance from close-range.

United's fixtures after the global break are Chelsea, Juventus (home and away), Everton, Bournemouth and Manchester City. Centre back, in particular, is a disaster zone.

"Not while he still has the same defenders to choose from - the defenders he keeps criticising and chopping and changing".

"As a team, we did so well", said Benitez.

The United players somehow rallied, be it for themselves, their manager or the fans, to prevent an embarrassing catastrophe against Newcastle, and while that has left fans confused as to Mourinho's position, it would be best for united's chiefs to wait it out till the end of the season before making a move.

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. "So are we papering over the cracks because they came back?"

"Mourinho's Red "n" White army", hollered fans in the stand. "Jose Mourinho", chimed in another section around J Stand. "Man United will never die".

The Spaniard was brought on as a substitute as early as the 19th minute at Old Trafford on Saturday, replacing a beleaguered Eric Bailly as United trailed Newcastle by two goals.

Paul Pogba, stripped of the vice captaincy, led the fightback.

But dig they did.

Mourinho appears isolated at United with the absence of his right-hand man, Rui Faria, rued.

"Yes, the way they came back to beat Newcastle from 2-0 down will give them confidence". It (the talk) helped us and the changes helped us.

The home side were two goals down before they staged an incredible comeback.
