Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho: I'm not the only one to blame

Jose Mourinho on the touchline against Valencia last night

"I will say", Neville continued, "there is something rotten to the core about the way the club is operating and it has to be coming from the top".

"Senior United sources have told Mirror Sport he has reached the point of no return, with the axe ready to fall whatever the outcome of Saturday's match against Newcastle", the Mirror's David McDonnell wrote on Friday night.

But, once again, Mourinho said this would be a "difficult season" - a tune he has been singing since the pre-season tour of the United States.

The win warmed the heart of many United fans, and left Jose Mourinho in a more bullish mood than of late, but that hasn't ended speculation over his future.

The move amounts to a back-me-or-sack-me plea, amid reports that he will be dismissed as manager after the game regardless of the result.

Yes, he lost his way at Arsenal towards the end, but that should in no way overshadow the fact that he changed the whole ethos of the club, from the development and trust in his younger players to the eye-catching and attractive brand of football he brought to the Gunners.

Nevertheless, the visit of Newcastle looked the ideal opportunity to get the club back on track and especially when you consider Rafael Benitez's men hadn't won in the league all season.

"I think a lot of wickedness and the clear man-hunting that I think in football is too much, but as I was saying, it's my life".

- Paul Pogba has had a hand in 29 Premier League goals under Jose Mourinho at Manchester United (13 goals, 16 assists), more than any other player.

Mourinho said the team had a discussion at half-time, and although they did not promise to win the game, they did vow to play as well as they could.

"They're playing Football Manager with the biggest club in the world. So I think it's a ridiculous talk".

"If this is true, we don't know if it's true but if this is true and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow, as nearly like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom".

Manchester United's fixture list looks imposing. "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".

"The people in the boardroom who are overseeing the football operations are nowhere near good enough; they're not qualified".

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.
