Scholes U-turn: Man Utd should NOT sack Mourinho

In his first season, Mourinho led United to the League Cup and Europa League, but despite being second last term, champions Manchester City finished 19 points ahead. Undoubtedly, that is a trend that needs to stop.

Manchester United will reportedly sack manager Jose Mourinho regardless of the outcome of their match against Newcastle this weekend.

United were woeful in the first half and were two down inside 10 minutes, but looked a completely different team after the interval as Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Sanchez turned the game on its head in the final 20 minutes.

What a moment. United needed this entering the global break, but will it be enough for Mourinho to keep his job?

Sources at United have told ESPN FC that they believe Mourinho to be increasingly unhappy and ill-tempered at the club. Eric Bailly was the player sacrificed and the warm hug attempted by Mourinho as the defender left the pitch was only reciprocated half-heartedly.

Neville's incredible four-minute rant highlighted the fact that United had seen four managers since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, suggesting that the problems came in the club's boardroom. I used to say in my football memories that one day I beat Liverpool in Anfield 4-1 and I was amazed with the stadium singing Liverpool songs, I was amazed and full of respect by that. I can cope with it.

Young forward Marcus Rashford, who was described as "scared" after the game by Mourinho, missed two chances to put the home side back in contention.

Given that Mourinho is no doubt aware that his side are struggling all over the shop then clearly his remarks show that he doesn't want to play a side who purposely try to make life hard for his team. I think, really, some of the boys, in spite of them not being the man that is hunted, I think that they are not coping well with it.

But the United players suddenly found it within themselves to fight back at last against a Newcastle team no doubt shocked to find themselves in such a commanding position and trying to consolidate their lead. I absolutely love it to death. I'm not turning on my football club but I have to say, something has to change; and it isn't the manager.

Mata, meanwhile, feels positive results can fix any crisis in football, even a story that has generated the level of debate as Mourinho's United future.
