FA to investigate Mourinho comments after victory over Newcastle

FA to investigate Mourinho comments after victory over Newcastle

"There's bound to be pressure when you are managing United", he told Omnisport.

David McDonnell of The Mirror, who wrote the initial claim, now suggests that Mourinho has nearly been given an ultimatum by the United board.

The Old Trafford boss said: "As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning: if tomorrow it is raining in London it is my fault".

Mourinho introduced Juan Mata and Marouane Fellaini, reshuffling his pack and after a dressing down at half-time his players responded.

It has been claimed in some quarters that Manchester United's comeback win over Newcastle United on Saturday could have saved Mourinho from being sacked. "To some extent, yeah, we are but it was an important result because they had to win after all the reports of Mourinho leaving".

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

It might not be the end of Mourinho's problems but it certainly lifted some clouds hovering precariously over his head and he showed relief and frustration in equal measure. They think they're hounding him with sensationalist headlines and twisting his imperfect English, yet Mourinho has found allies among a significant number of match-going fans - including away supporters.

Smart told reporters that he gestured for Smith to meet him in the back. "We can handle that off of the court". During a first-quarter scuffle, Smart shoved Smith from behind after Smith and Aron Baynes got tangled up.

"I agree with Jose I think there is a bit of a manhunt out there - everyone seems to be looking at him". United had rubbished the reports when they came out, too.

He might yet lose it for his side have been wholly underwhelming so far this season, but he can at least count on the support of many Old Trafford regulars.

Despite their turnaround on Saturday against Newcastle, all eyes were on Mourinho at full time as he made his way down the tunnel.

Here's to it being a real turning point.

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