Benitez laments squandered Newcastle chances after Man United comeback

Manchester United v Valencia – UEFA Champions League – Group H – Old Trafford

Jose Mourinho is trying to end a four-match winless run

According to the Mirror, Mourinho has lost the confidence of the board with "senior United sources" telling the paper that the Portuguese coach's almost two-and-a-half-years in charge will end whatever the outcome of the league game against the Magpies.

While many United players brought out their best in the second half of the game, people reacted specifically to Paul Pogba and his 90 minutes.

"I'm sorry boys", said Jose Mourinho as he walked into the post match press conference following his side's 3-2 comeback victory against Newcastle United on Saturday night.

"The board has not backed Jose Mourinho either, though".

The manager used his programme notes before the game on Tuesday to say "the team is always more important than the individual" and "the crest on the chest is more important than the name on the back of the shirt".

It was United's first win the Premier League since mid-September.

United take on Newcastle at Old Trafford from 5.30pm tomorrow.

"They gave everything, and I don't want to say we were lucky because we fought so much for that, but I think the boys, they deserve it, even if the result ends with a 2-2", Mourinho said.

'Hopefully Mourinho stays, I'd like him to stay but he has to start changing his methods from those he's used for years and understand the game's gone forward.

"No, I think we have enough potential to do better than what we are doing in the Premier League", Mourinho said.

"For me, it's not fair now because the team is not winning, but they are working so hard and they are so close", he noted.

The visitors got to score-sheet when Kenedy tapped home the opener, 7 minutes into the match.

"When you have top-class players, this can happen".

"The industry I work in is different, a lot of wickedness, too much wickedness in something that should be handsome".

"You did not see that in the defeat at West Ham last week or the goalless draw against Valencia in the Champions League in midweek, but they can do it".

Manchester City are ready to continue their efforts to buy every player in the world after they turned their attention to Lyon midfielder Tanguy Ndombele, the Sunday Star believes.
