Jose Mourinho demands Man United's public support before Newcastle match

"Where are the values and principles [at when] the journalists find out first?"

Add to that a Carabao Cup defeat at the hands of Derby County and a below-par 0-0 draw against Valencia on Tuesday night, and there are more than just a few worrying signs.

Manchester United's board are "playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world", said former captain Gary Neville after it was reported manager Jose Mourinho would be sacked following Saturday's game against Newcastle.

During the summer, Mourinho was unable to bring in as many players as he wanted to and a simmering row with Paul Pogba resulted in the Frenchman being stripped of the United captaincy. The dressing-room is leading what is happening.

In a brief press conference Mourinho refused to explain why the club is struggling but did admit it was not good enough.

"No, it's exactly the same [squad]", he said, when asked whether anyone had recovered.

Asked if United would be right to sack Mourinho, Sky Sports pundit Neville replied: "No".

The 55-year-old Portuguese manager improved the club's domestic form last season, guiding United to a second-place finish behind champions Manchester City. Let us know in the comments section below.

'For the moment, we have the most points of any English team in the Champions League, and it is a big responsibility for us to maintain that in our next group match against the super team, Juventus.

The Man United manager shared that his side were expecting a hard game when they host Rafa Benitez's side at Old Trafford and heaped praise on the Spanish manager. He would be a wonderful choice, considering the 52-year old has an idea of Manchester United's history.

"The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season, but gave them very, very close results and very hard matches for the opposition".

The match can also be found on MUTV for those who subscribe to the club's official channel, while in the U.S. viewers can use FuboTV to stream the game live.

The 25-year-old refused to rule out a move away from United during the worldwide break in September amid ongoing rumours that he has set his sights on a transfer to Barcelona and Mourinho then stripped the France global of the vice-captaincy after he seemingly criticised his tactics following the 1-1 draw with Wolves.
