Fighting talk from Mourinho as he survives 'manhunt'

Fighting talk from Mourinho as he survives 'manhunt'

The 55-year-old Portuguese coach looked doomed on Saturday evening when the Red Devils found themselves 2-0 down at home to Newcastle United within 10 minutes.

Nemanja Matic missed a sitter early in the second half, but sub Juan Mata halved the deficit with a fine free-kick (70) to give United hope, and they duly levelled shortly after through Anthony Martial's finish in the 76th minute before Sanchez's victor.

Whether Mourinho keeps his job remains to be seen, but the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss came out fighting following weeks of criticism of his handling of United's squad, sparked by his fall-out with star midfielder Paul Pogba and other key players.

"I'm in a situation [where] I'm losing 2-0 at home in a match that was very important for us to win and the fans were absolutely incredible. We fought so much", Mourinho said.

"We were losing 2-0, Newcastle created even more chances to score more goals and confidence levels were low". Perhaps they will wait till the end of the season, for the reported fee to be paid to Mourinho falls sharply to just £10m if he fails to guide his side to the Champions League this season.

Unemployment rate hits record low
Figures from the Department of Labor also showed the USA economy created 134,000 jobs during the month, fewer than were expected. The dollar .DXY was little changed against a basket of currencies, while stocks on Wall Street were trading lower.

"The industry I work in is different, a lot of wickedness, too much wickedness in something that should be handsome".

"I hope [Mourinho stays] because Manchester United had Sir Alex Ferguson for so long and I don't want us to become a yo-yo club with managers sacked every two years", said Ince, as per the Independent. Some are new and some are deja vu. "If there is some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault".

"I have to be ready for all of this". I think some of the boys are not coping well with it.

"It is not easy for them [the players]".

Barely three minutes later, it was Jonjo Shelvey who collected a throw-in, his cross beating Eric Bailly's half-hearted attempt to clear and landing at the feet of Yoshinori Muto who evaded Young before turning to beat David De Gea. It would be stretching it to say this was proof Mourinho retains the complete support of his players, but you can not ignore the effort they gave in the second half.
