Mourinho Comments On Reports He'd Be Sacked

If you score once, you can score a few goals in some minutes; I've seen Manchester United doing that a lot of times over the years and today we did it.

The Red Devils conceded twice in the opening 10 minutes against the Magpies, but launched a stirring second-half comeback to win 3-2 and Neville is confident that Mourinho still has the ability to turn things around. Mourinho would nearly certainly turn the matter over to his expert legal team and the Mirror says that with "built-in loyalty payments, signing fees and other agreements on top of his £14.5m-a-year annual salary, that amounts to a whopping £29m". "It is not easy for them [the players]".

And on Saturday, Mourinho was assured by the United hierarchy that his position was safe after the Daily Mirror reported he would be sacked regardless of the result against Newcastle.

"We couldn't afford another defeat, we couldn't afford another disappointment, especially for the fans", Mata told MUTV.

While Mourinho's Reds celebrated, second-bottom Newcastle let a first win of the season slip out of their grasp.

Sanchez's victor also saw United supporters, who had been muted in their backing for Mourinho to that point, sing his name out loud around Old Trafford.

So often criticised for preaching a cautious approach, it was only when Mourinho's men threw caution to the wind when 2-0 down that they began to look like the United of old.

"They had fresh legs and quality, and they were very strong at the end".

Here's to it being a real turning point. Mourinho's United are a mess and a 3-2 victory against one of the league's worst sides doesn't change that.

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

"I'm going to go to Belgium, hopefully do well for my country, but knowing that I have two important games for my team coming back". His United team got that Saturday. They are a side United should be beating routinely.
