The 32-year-old made his remarks as Mourinho waited for a public show of faith from the United board in their manager who woke on Saturday to reports that he would be sacked over the weekend.

It was claimed Mourinho would be dismissed as United boss irrespective of his team's result at home to Newcastle United on Saturday evening. The Blues have been in scintillating form since the start of the season and it is all set to be a cracker as Jose Mourinho takes on his former club. Some of the players have to be better. He took a lot of stick but behind closed doors I said to the players, "We have to be doing better".

Mourinho is unhappy as he does not feel Woodward sufficiently backed him in the summer, and is especially keen on signing a new centre back.

He said in his "Team of the Week" column for BBC Sport: "Jose Mourinho owes Paul Pogba an apology".

He said it appeared to be a "lone-wolf attack" and that security forces were searching for the suspected perpetrator. Conricus identified the gunman as a 23-year-old Palestinian from a West Bank village and said he was still at large.

"It's tough [at United], it has been a tough situation", Rooney told The Telegraph, after scoring both goals for DC United in a 2-1 win over Chicago Fire on Sunday.

Lukaku is pleased to have seen the feel-good factor returned to Old Trafford heading into the worldwide break, telling MUTV: "I can go to Belgium with a cool feeling [after winning]".

"The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone. There are not enough of them to help you through it".

The visit of Newcastle followed a run of four games without a win in all competitions for the Red Devils, who suffered defeats to West Ham in the Premier League and Derby County in the EFL Cup during that spell. It's not like when he was at Inter Milan in the Champions League and he could park the bus defensively.
