Struggling Mourinho confident Red Devils job not under threat

The defender ensured his blunt assessment could not be overtly interpreted as criticism of Mourinho's tactics after United slipped nine points behind league leaders Manchester City and Liverpool after seven games.

From the selection of personas available to him in times of alleged crisis, José Mourinho chose the sunny, upbeat one for the press conference ahead of the Champions League meeting with Valencia that could, theoretically, turn into his last game in charge. I want to thank all of you who support us during these tough times.

"For me, I played one of the worst games since I signed for Man Utd".

Mourinho has already used 22 different players - 21 of whom have started at least once - in the Premier League this season as he chops and changes in a combination of searching for performances and adapting to the latest falling out. Plus we're pretty sure 99.9% of Wolves fans wouldn't trade Santo for Mourinho anyway.

It very much seems like Pogba is anxious that he'd be absolutely buried by Mourinho if he were to open his mouth once again.

"The Champions League week is always a good week", said Mourinho.

Mourinho added: 'I am still the kid that I was 20 years ago and I am still naive, but I still don't believe that a player is not honest'.

However, the prolific Frenchman was anxious that Mourinho might think he is plotting a move behind his back and hence, called him to clear the air (h/t Sun).

"I'm not asking you who did you speak with this morning, who was your last phone call, that's a private matter".

That form has left Mourinho under intense pressure but when asked about influential voices in the dressing room, Matic told reporters that it is on the field where United need inspirational figures.

"We'll win if we play well", he said.

The Hammers suddenly look a world away from the side who lost their first four matches of the season, having taken seven points off Everton, Chelsea and United as well as putting eight goals past Macclesfield in the cup.

"But it looks as if he has gone back to that, or is still doing that, at Manchester United".

What on earth was he doing tactically in the 3-1 defeat at West Ham?

'Similar arrangements apply in other sports - think of the "domestiques" in cycling for instance'.
