Jose Mourinho claims there is a 'manhunt' against him and his team

A 90th-minute victor from Alexis Sanchez, one of the major disappointments of this season, completed the comeback which should ease the pressure on Mourinho.

Paul Pogba in particular was excellent in the second half as he produced a lovely assist for the Anthony Martial equaliser before the much maligned Alexis Sanchez popped up with the victor in the last few minutes.

Yet United made it clear on Saturday morning that Mourinho's position is not under imminent threat, as they insisted no decision has been made over his long-term future.

United were staring at a fifth straight game without a win, in all competitions, after Newcastle scored twice in the opening ten minutes.

Mourinho was under intense pressure ahead of the Premier League clash, with some reports suggesting that the Portuguese would get sacked regardless of the result at Old Trafford.

During Sky Sports' coverage of the Brighton and West Ham game on Friday, he said "there is something rotten to the core" at United.

"With all the respect and I hope they don't interpret me in a negative way, if we are playing in a league like the Swiss league and we don't win that league, anything else apart from winning that league would be an bad season".


"And I have to say that Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support he's ever had in his life tomorrow I think in that ground".

A more than proven commodity at one of the Premier League's biggest clubs, Pochettino could be the ideal candidate to get Manchester United back on track.

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. A better team would have picked United off and buried them to make any comeback impossible.

"They gave everything, and I don't want to say we were lucky because we fought so much for that, but I think the boys, they deserve it, even if the result ends with a 2-2", Mourinho said.

It comes after a week in which Mourinho said some players "care more than others" in the build-up to the goalless Champions League draw with Valencia.

He adds: "I'm furious at thinking this has broken out".

"A good professional who works really hard. I worked since I was a kid - I worked for this, and I will love it until my last day, so it's one more experience in my life".
