FA to investigate Mourinho's touchline comments after Newcastle comeback

Grant SmithOct 09, 2018

The club has been forced to dismiss reports claiming that Mourinho is set to lose his job at Old Trafford and Rooney believes the Portuguese has been made a scapegoat for the club's underperforming players.

Mourinho's Manchester United team went on to beat Newcastle United 3-2, having come back from two goals behind and Rooney said that the recent run of poor results had reminded him of the hard times during Louis van Gaal's two-year reign at the club.

The former England forward said the situation at Old Trafford was similar to when Louis van Gaal was at the helm. He took a lot of stick but behind closed doors I said to the players, "We have to be doing better".

"I am 55, mature, but for the first time in football I see a manhunting", he said.

Despite his reputation, Mourinho remains a popular and respected figure amongst his peers and Jokanovic insisted that if he will never speak a word against the Manchester United manager. Quite a lot of those players maybe haven't faced this before and they haven't got the senior players, which I had there as a young player, to help in those hard moments.

Rooney's effect at DC United, who have four regular-season games left this season, means that they are in contention to make the playoffs. Yes they want to win trophies but you don't need to win a trophy every week.

According to The Sun, the Frenchman and Portuguese came together to give the Red Devils their best chance to turn their game against Newcastle United around on Saturday.

In total, 10 United players could leave in the summer - not just Pogba, but also Luke Shaw, Anthony Martial, David de Gea, Eric Bailly, Antonio Valencia, Juan Mata, Ander Herrera, Ashley Young and Phil Jones, who all have various grievances over Mourinho's management. It's not like when he was at Inter Milan in the Champions League and he could park the bus defensively.
