Manchester United Will Not Sack Jose Mourinho Before Their Season Ends

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho insists it's too early in the season to be anxious about the club's current position in the Premier League standings.

Reports emerged on Friday night that a decision had already been taken to remove Mourinho, who is without a win in his last four games - something that has never happened before in his managerial career.

Mourinho's third season as United boss has been disappointing for many fans, with the club sitting tenth in the Premier League after seven matches.

The Portuguese has seemingly struggled to motivate his players this season, and United have made their worst start to a league season in 29 years. 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. We are told that Mourinho retains the backing of the club's hierarchy, but another defeat today would surely push him to the brink.

The former England full-back added: "Eventually I've got to stand up and say, "look, I'm not good enough to do this".

The Sky Sports pundit in his prediction for Saturday's meeting between the two sides, claimed that if Man United could hand pick any team to play this weekend they would choose the Magpies.

"The people in the boardroom at this moment in time who are, if you like, overseeing the football operation, are nowhere near good enough".

After the break United faces Everton, Bournemouth, Juventus and Manchester City, and if the Red Devils don't come out with more wins than losses in those matches, we very well could see Mourinho depart the club much earlier than anyone expected when he signed.

With the array of talent at his disposal in every area of the pitch, this United side should be performing to much a higher standard, though similar can be said of David Moyes and Louis van Gaal. Jose Mourinho is unable to control his squad with some players wanting him to be sacked immediately. We think the fans deserve better.

Mourinho goes into Saturday's fixture searching for a first home win in all competitions since the opening weekend of the season. "I have no doubts about that". "That is the reason why it was a phenomenal season".
