  • Mourinho attends a press conference at Old Trafford stadium

According to the Mirror the former Real Madrid boss will be sacked this weekend, no matter the result against Newcastle United, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward and others having 'had enough'.

It is believed that Michael Carrick will take charge of the squad in a temporary role if Mourinho is indeed let go, something which will result in the Portuguese coach raking in around £20m in compensation.

Asked who was to blame for United's predicament, Mourinho responded: "The same people that were to blame for the fantastic season of last season".

Trump replied that she was "very honored" to be there, accepting a gift of Kente cloth and slippers as a remembrance of the trip. Mrs Trump receives flowers during an arrival ceremony after landing at Kotoka International Airport in Accra October 2, 2018.

The Sky Sports pundit concluded: "What I would say on Tuesday night against Valencia, I said it under Louis Van Gaal, win, lose, draw it happens in football, but never board".

What a miserable season it's been for Jose Mourinho and Manchester United. "It's unacceptable", Neville, 43, said.

Asked whether he accepted that would not be good enough, he said: "Yes, I accept". "It's an absolute disgrace", Neville said.

Mourinho responded to the criticism coming his way by claiming United overachieved in finishing second last season, 19 points behind champions Manchester City, adding he always expected this campaign to be more hard. Get some leadership. For me, at this moment in time, I am furious. Journalists don't break stories of this nature unless they're absolutely certain. As is the case with Paul Pogba, both players are looking to force transfers away from the club if Mourinho isn't sacked. "You have to look at not the manager but the people who are bringing them in, the people signing the players and sanctioning the deals". "The dressing room is leading what is happening, the tail is wagging the dog at the football club". Get some control back.

Pogba publicly stated after his side's Premier League opener against Leicester City back in August that he would be in trouble if he spoke up about his situation, hinting at a bad relationship with Mourinho, and things have gone from bad to worse ever since.

Immediately following the statement the player had a fall out with manager Jose Mourinho and now reports claim the club are planning to sell him off next year.
