Mourinho says 'manhunt' against him affecting Manchester United players

Jose Mourinho screams at his players

Jose Mourinho's men entered their Premier League clash with Newcastle United on the back of a bad run of form, which included defeat to West Ham United and a pitiful draw with Valencia.

"Every ball around our box was nearly a goal or some mistake, a bad decision, panic".

Juan Mata scored on a free kick 70 minutes in, Anthony Martial found the net from inside the box six minutes later, and then it was Alexis' header on 90 minutes that completed the comeback.

But after Mourinho made his final change in the 67th minute, sending Sanchez on for Marcus Rashford, United stormed forward. The Champions League outing represented an improved performance for the Red Devils and given his XIs have been changing with the wind over this recent hard patch, Mourinho would be wise to stick with the same line-up, minus Antonio Valencia - who often left United exposed down the right against Los Che - for the promising Diogo Dalot.

United's problems are systemic and has, over time, eroded the bond between Mourinho in his team, culminating in either tactical dysfunction or the kind of kitchen sink performance seen at the end against Newcastle.

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

"This team defensively only conceded one more goal than Manchester City last season, and they are all over the place this year because they are constantly hearing their manager tell them they are not good enough", he said.

Zidane would likely be a popular choice given his incredible European success at Madrid, and the eye-catching brand of football he had the Spanish giants playing, a stark contrast to the pragmatic style United fans have become accustomed to under Mourinho.

The former Chelsea boss, who said that such scrutiny "doesn't stop", feels some of his players have been affected but hailed them for displaying "pride" in the second half. Journalists don't break stories of this nature unless they're absolutely certain.

"I'm furious going back three, four years ago, when [David] Moyes was sacked and it broke the day before".

"I think opponents with much more potential than us finished behind us". Get some leadership and for me at this moment in time I'm furious.

"Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support of his life tomorrow and I'll be there to give it to him". It's my life, it's a life I love, it's a life I worked since I was a kid.
