Mourinho criticism becoming 'personal' - Neville backs United boss

Mourinho criticism becoming 'personal' - Neville backs United boss

"But really, all they have done is beat a team which has not won all season and is in the bottom three". They have been vocal in their support of him at matches, and this situation suits the United manager.

"So I still don't see Jose Mourinho being able to just turn it around".

According to ESPN, Mourinho has shortlisted both Romagnoli and Inter's Milan Skriniar, with the United manager looking to raid his former side to sign the impressive Slovakian.

Speculation over the Portuguese boss and his immediate future intensified ahead of their clash with Newcastle at the weekend, with only a second-half turnaround staving off an uncomfortable inquisition.

Should Jose Mourinho still be sacked, despite the win over Newcastle?

"The tension at Old Trafford has largely been inflicted by their own manager".

There have been reports that Mourinho has fallen out with a number of players at Old Trafford including star midfielder Paul Pogba.

Criticism from many quarters have blamed Mourinho for losing touch with modern football and its managers, but Neville remembers Sir Alex Ferguson had similar allegations thrown at him.

But while the result may have brought temporary relief to the team and its fans, and saved Jose Mourinho's job for the moment, it doesn't change the fact that things have gone desperately wrong at the club. His third seasons in his second spell at Chelsea and Real Madrid also ended in acrimonious departures after poor results and falling out with key players. If I could tell them please don't do it, I would say that.

Former Premier League star Jamie Redknapp believes Mourinho is still in the firing line despite the win over Newcastle. You knew United would have all the ball in the world.
