Mourinho criticism becoming 'personal' - Neville backs United boss

  • Romelu Lukaku says Man Utd have to be positive ahead of tough fixtures

Despite spending a club-record $59 million on Sigurdsson last summer, Everton didn't bother to play the Icelandic midfielder in his preferred position as an advanced playmaker last season.

The Mirror says that Zidane is still very much in the thoughts of the United board and the former Real Madrid boss has been "contacted with a request to reject any approaches from elsewhere with Mourinho's job in the balance". His stock has never been lower as a United player; he's one of many who needs a change in fortunes.

"I think Jose is still someone that I look up to and admire because managers go through tough times", said Neville, who won six Premier League titles and the Champions League among other trophies during his time at United.

Jose Mourinho has shrugged off pressure following recent poor form to demand two new signings in January.

Former Premier League star Jamie Redknapp believes Mourinho is still in the firing line despite the win over Newcastle.

"So why did Mourinho start two holding midfielders, Nemanja Matic and Scott McTominay?"


And part of that second-half renaissance was led by Frenchman Pogba - who was moved to a deeper role but bossed the midfield.

It's certainly a fair point.

Many reports prior to that game had said that Mourinho would be sacked post the weekend, regardless of the result against the Magpies, but Neville expects the Portuguese to be at the touchline when Chelsea host United at Stamford Bridge later this month.

Shearer is simply telling it how it is: a 3-2 win over Newcastle has merely papered over the cracks. "But the fact they were 2-0 down in the first place says it all", he added.

And he believes the sack will come sooner than later for Mourinho.

"Just because they had a good second half does not mean their problems are solved". Have your say below.
