Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho: 'Speculation won't end with win'

Under-pressure Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho saw his side score three goals, including a late victor, as they beat lowly Newcastle 3-2 at Old Trafford in the Premier League on Saturday.

The United left-back did not disclose the source of the "very strong" words but insisted that "everything that was said was correct and needed", as goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial, Alexis Sanchez overturned the 2-0 first-half deficit.

The Daily Mirror reported late on Friday that Mourinho will be replaced as manager regardless of United's result in their Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on Saturday.

"Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support of his life tomorrow and I'll be there to give it to him".

Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to be sacked as Manchester United manager this weekend. "If you score once, you can score a few goals in some minutes".

"I am very happy for the team, for us, but especially for the fans because they don't deserve everything that is going on, so they deserve to see a team like today. For me, one win will change the atmosphere around the club".

"And if you want something more, in pre-season I also said that this season was going to be very hard".

"Hopefully we can do that at the end of the game". Their substitutions were top-class players, and it was hard to stop, especially when you have players who are getting exhausted.

"We know that to improve our position we need to win these three points", he confessed. "All of them have been really strong every year with good managers, good players, so I don't see any fragile Manchester United team", he said.

As usual, Neville was working for Sky Sports during Brighton's 1-0 win over West Ham and after the game, Kelly Cates asked the former Manchester United defender if sacking Mourinho would be the right decision from the United board.

Magpies midfielder Matt Ritchie said: "Us as players are the only people who can get us out of this".

"It's a good day for us and a good win that was much needed before the worldwide break".

United's attack did the defence no favours in the 50th minute, with Pogba denied by Newcastle Martin Dubravka from 25 yards despite a deflection and Matic missing the second chance, on an open net, by sending his attempt over the crossbar.
