Huddersfield boss Wagner warns Arsenal: We'll be brutal and fight

Grant SmithDec 08, 2018

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho is under pressure to deliver at Old Trafford with his treatment of several members of the squad raising eyebrows.

Mourinho's position at Old Trafford has been under scrutiny for most of the season.

Mendes is not known for speaking publicly about clients but his statement issued via his agency Gestifute comes on the same day as reports that United have lined up Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino to take over in the summer.

It was the news which many Arsenal fans were fearing but some probably expected when they saw Rob Holding go down clutching his knee on Wednesday night.

"Step by step", Mourinho said about Fred's progress on Friday. In fact we may even start keeping a few more clean sheets with Koscielny leading from the back....

But that hasn't stopped the influx of rumours suggesting that the former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss could soon be shown the exit door.

As is always the case at the biggest club in the world, there is plenty going on aside from Jose Mourinho's preparations for that match with the division's bottom side and we've put them all in one place in today's roundup... "He has a long-term contract with Manchester United and is fully committed to the club in building a solid winning project".

United sit eighth in the table as a result and require an immediate improvement against Fulham on Saturday if they are to keep themselves in contention for a top-four finish.

Mourinho has questioned United's character and competitiveness after the disappointment of draws against Crystal Palace and Southampton, asking whether the team had enough "mad dogs". A vote of confidence from a manager's agent is a very unusual occurrence, and one has to wonder if his positive outlook reflects that of the decision-makers at Manchester United.
