FA to investigate Mourinho's touchline comments after Newcastle comeback

The Portuguese coach, who was supposedly set to be fired on Monday - no matter the outcome of his side's home clash with Newcastle - still retains his job as manager at Old Trafford.

However, while Newcastle's awful run at Manchester United continued, which extended the club's wait for a first win of the campaign, Benitez's men did become record breakers on Saturday evening.

"I am 55, mature, but for the first time in football I see a manhunting", he said.

It is reported Mourinho is convinced the club are already planning for his succession - and if Woodward can assure him this is not the case, he will use the meeting to demand money for transfer spending in January.

Mourinho was reassured of his position by his employers but, according to The Telegraph, he wants to be backed publicly.

Whereas the summer rumours linking United with moves for Toby Alderweireld, Harry Maguire, Jerome Boateng and every other central defender under the sun amounted to nothing, it seems Mourinho is still keen to strengthen his team's backline.

Manchester United's Luke Shaw could be leaving the club next summer.

When his players return from global duty, Man United will face Chelsea and Juventus within three days.

United's troubles on and off the field have resulted in the club suffering their worst start to a Premier League season in 29 years.

"Fortunately Pogba, oblivious to Mourinho's continual rantings, took the game by the scruff of the neck, probing and driving his team to victory". It's not like when he was at Inter Milan in the Champions League and he could park the bus defensively.

'There are not enough of them to help you through it'.
