Jose Mourinho: 'Marcus Rashford, Scott McTominay not ready for pressure'

  • Mourinho says 'manhunt' against him affecting Manchester United players - video

"The team in my opinion didn't cope well with the pressure of the man-hunting", he said.

But after being booed off at half-time, United avoided going five games without a win thanks to a thrilling second half fightback.

Even the three players who dug Mourinho out of the biggest of holes - Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez - have had their issues with the manager.

Mourinho is subsequently expected to be in charge of United's visit to Chelsea after the worldwide break.

United have not sounded out any candidates at present and are hoping that Mourinho can turn things around and remain until at least the end of the season.

Jose Mourinho has praised the Manchester United fans for their "magnificent" support but believes they should focus on cheering on the team, not him.

That's according to former Newcastle striker Alan Shearer.

Manchester United's fixture list looks imposing.

Meanwhile, Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp thinks Mourinho still has a long way to go to save his job.

"Their problems are too deep-rooted for one half to have sorted them out".

The 21-year-old was already on City's shopping list before they chose to chase Jorginho for most of the summer before Chelsea bought him, simply by agreeing a fee with Napoli instead of endlessly waiting for a deal to go through.

The 55-year-old also feels the board have failed to back him in the transfer market.


England midfielder Dier struck his first club goal in 18 months as Tottenham made it three victories in as many league matches.

"They continued pushing and pushing, and it was hard to defend".

"We created more chances to score more goals and that's a very positive sign".

'Definitely, they pushed us, they helped us, to go more, to try more, to give this 50 minutes more and I'm very happy for them.

"He has killed their confidence - and Saturday was just another example of that."

"At the same time, he left another centre-half Victor Lindelof, who he bought for £31million, on the bench". I can not not respect the guy who has won everything.

It's certainly a fair point.

The under-fire manager still managed to lash out at detractors after the 3-2 victory over Newcastle yesterday, claiming that he would even be blamed for the weather and the progress of Brexit negotiations. "So are we papering over the cracks because they came back?"

"They were 2-0 down, they had to do what they were doing".

"Everything that they did that was quality, Pogba was involved, he really got a grasp of the game in the second half".

The Independent claim, however, that Mourinho could still be sacked. Have your say below.
