Manchester United Will Not Sack Jose Mourinho Before Their Season Ends

Manchester United Will Not Sack Jose Mourinho Before Their Season Ends

Jose Mourinho's turbulent time as Manchester United manager could end with him being sacked as soon as this weekend, according to a British press report.

According to the Mirror, Mourinho, 55, has lost the confidence of the board with "senior United sources" telling the paper his almost two-and-a-half years in charge will end whatever the outcome of the Newcastle game.

As usual, Neville was working for Sky Sports during Brighton's 1-0 win over West Ham and after the game, Kelly Cates asked the former Manchester United defender if sacking Mourinho would be the right decision from the United board.

Hoddle thinks Mourinho has created an unsalvageable situation at United.

A lifelong fan of the club, Neville said that the Manchester United fans will back Mourinho on Saturday and he will get huge support, "It's unacceptable, and I have to say that Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support he's ever had in his life tomorrow in that ground".

"But we are in a position that we can do much better and to do that we need points; points that we lost especially in the last two Premier League matches with one point out of six".

The obvious choice, the "Zidane to Manchester United" rumours have been swirling around since the French man left Real Madrid after winning an unprecedented three Champions League crowns in a row. They're closest to north London pair and top-four rivals Arsenal and Tottenham in the league, languishing just five points behind the duo, but with both teams up against relatively hospitable opponents in promoted pair Fulham and Cardiff, respectively, that gap could remain at five points, if not more should United slip up against Newcastle. Get some leadership. For me, at this moment in time, I am furious. "I'm furious going back three, four years ago, when [David] Moyes was sacked and it broke the day before".

Former United and England full-back Gary Neville, one of Ferguson's most dependable players, said such an attrition rate was against the "principles and values" of the club.

"I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the evening of a cup final and finding out from other people". It's an absolute disgrace. I absolutely love it to death.
