Manchester United's Portuguese manager Jose Mourinho gestures during the English Premier League football match between Manchester United and Newcastle at Old Trafford in Manchester, north west England, on October 6, 2018.

It comes with current manager Jose Mourinho under vast pressure at Manchester United despite beating Newcastle 3-2 yesterday.

The Daily Mirror reported late Friday that Mourinho would be dismissed regardless of the result of United's match at home to Newcastle on Saturday.

"This is the first time I've seen in football man-hunting", Mourinho told BT Sport.

"I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", he said.

No. The board was the focus of their frustration and as momentum fizzled out during the first-half, everyone in attendance began to hear "Jose's right, the board is sh**e" ring out around the stands.

"Today is not the day to complain about the players", said Benitez. I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the evening of an F.A cup final and finding out from other people.

Manchester United Will Not Sack Jose Mourinho Before Their Season Ends
On Saturday, the Red Devils host Newcastle United , with both sides looking to create a bit of momentum. Jose Mourinho is unable to control his squad with some players wanting him to be sacked immediately.

"No, it's exactly the same [squad]", he said, when asked whether anyone had recovered. "It's one more experience in my life".

Even after securing the three points against Newcastle, the Red Devils are still only in eighth place in the Premier League, six points behind leaders Liverpool and City, who both have a game in hand.

"It was very hard to stop them playing". But I left Old Trafford in the firm belief that, at best, he might have earned himself a reprieve as Manchester United's manager.

And their run of fixtures to come is fairly daunting, bearing in mind the way the team is playing. Get some leadership and for me at this moment in time I'm furious. It's been my life, it's given me everything and I'm not turning on my football club but I have to say, something has to change - and it isn't the manager.

"I think there is too much talk, you put in doubt the honesty and professionalism of the players", he added.

But despite Woodward praising Mourinho's credentials during a recent conference call to the club's investors, the former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager has grown increasingly frustrated by what he perceives to be a lack of credible, public backing from his bosses.
