Jose Mourinho sack: Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez gives verdict on Man Utd manager

0

JOSE MOURINHO is under severe pressure at Manchester United after a string of poor results.

And some reports claim the Special One could be sacked if the Red Devils lost to Newcastle at Old Trafford in the Premier League tomorrow.

Manchester United drew with Valencia in the Champions League earlier this week, lost to West Ham last weekend and were dumped out of the Carabao Cup by Derby.

And to add to their poor form, Mourinho has also had a public bust-up with Paul Pogba.

But Newcastle boss Rafa Benitez is focusing on his side and trying to get a big result at Old Trafford.

“He’s a good manager, but I want to try and concentrate on getting three points”

He said: “I‘m not here to talk about him.

“He’s a good manager, but I want to try and concentrate on getting three points if we can.”

Meanwhile, Mourinho has admitted his side’s form has not been good enough in recent matches.

He said: “That’s true. Only one defeat at home all season.

“Only one defeat in the last seven matches, but not victories at home.

“In the past three matches three draws, not the feeling of the defeat, but not the happiness of the victory.

“So yes it’s important for us to try to win this match on Saturday.”

Mourinho was also full of praise for Newcastle manager Benitez.

He explained: “Very, very, very good coach.

“A team that is always very well organised against, especially the teams of the first part of the table, where their manager is very bright on his analyse of the opponents qualities and to try to stop them.

“The results they had against the top teams didn’t get them points yet this season, but gave them very close results and very difficult matches for the opposition.

“So, we expect that. We expect a difficult match.”

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