Man-Utd Deny They Are Set To Sack Jose Mourinho This Weekend
Jose Mourinho’s position as manager of Manchester United is not under immediate threat.
Weeks of speculation and scrutiny came to a head with suggestions on Friday evening that the 55-year-old was set to be sacked, irrespective of the outcome of Saturday’s Premier League clash with Newcastle.
Poor performances have been compounded by off-field problems during an uncomfortable start to the season at Old Trafford, with the relationship between Mourinho and star midfielder Paul Pogba creating unwanted headlines.
Last weekend’s 3-1 loss at West Ham made this United’s worst start to a league campaign in 29 years but senior sources at the club have strongly denied that the Portuguese will be fired this weekend.
