Man United Deny Firing Jose Mourinho This Weekend


The richest club in England, Manchester United have denied that Jose Mourinho’s position as manager 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.
