Man City owner Sheik Mansour nearly bought Newcastle United

A pathetic first half made manager Jose Mourinho's position look more perilous than ever, despite senior United figures denying a report in the build-up that the Portuguese's job was in immediate danger.

However, other news outlets like BBC, Sky Sports and The Guardian reported yesterday before the match that Mourinho retains the backing of the club, with the board now having no plans to remove him as manager.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho went into Saturday's Premier League clash against Newcastle at Old Trafford with talk about his future rife.

An animated Mourinho reacted with fury, screaming at his players and gesticulating wildly.

Old Trafford was rocking in the second half as United fans stuck with their team and, on the whole, under-fire Mourinho.

Substitute Alexis Sanchez scored the victor in the 90th minute to give Jose Mourinho's side their first win since September 15.

Mourinho was relieved but still irritated by weeks of criticism. I'm not turning on my football club but I have to say, something has to change; and it isn't the manager. "If there (are) some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault".




"I think opponents with much more potential than us finished behind us". It is my life. "I used to love it".

Leader Manchester City and second-place Liverpool meet on Sunday, the same day as Chelsea faces Southampton, and Arsenal plays London rival Fulham.

Newcastle, winless in seven previous league outings, could scarcely believe their luck early on in Manchester.

The former World Cup victor has been heavily linked with a move to United as the pressure mounts on Jose Mourinho but his agent has moved to dampen that speculation.

Yoshinori Muto, a summer signing making his first start for Newcastle, doubled the lead three minutes later with a low strike past David De Gea's right foot after controlling the ball in the mixer.

The Red Devils piled-up the pressure after the break, and Juan Mata swept home a world-class free-kick with 20 minutes left.

"I have said for many years, you can lose matches but cannot lose your dignity or pride and that it's not about the manager or the players, it's about the club and the fans".
