Manchester United hit with triple injury blow ahead of Newcastle visit

"I will say", Neville continued, "there is something rotten to the core about the way the club is operating and it has to be coming from the top".

Jose Mourinho's days as Manchester United manager may be numbered after recent results, but a comeback win on Saturday may give him a lifeline as he looks to get things back on track.

Former United favourite Gary Neville was asked about it after Sky Sports' coverage of Friday's match between Brighton and West Ham.

Those rumours, however, were later quashed by the club themselves, but the feeling still remains that Mourinho is living on borrowed time in the Old Trafford dugout.

"I think you will know what I told", Mourinho said.

Manchester United have not won in their last four matches across all competitions.

But with his future now a matter of daily discussion and headlines suggesting his time as manager is running out, Mourinho wants Woodward to dismiss all reports of his job being on the line.

Jose Mourinho is reportedly set to be sacked as Manchester United manager this weekend. I love that football club.

Nevertheless, the visit of Newcastle looked the ideal opportunity to get the club back on track and especially when you consider Rafael Benitez's men hadn't won in the league all season. It is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity. I think of Louis van Gaal being sacked the evening of an F.A cup final and finding out from other people.

United need a manager who will bring attractive football to the club, so who better than one of the true innovators of the style?

While the Magpies boss' tactics may have not racked up the points, by adapting a defensive style when playing the so-called big sides in the league, he frustrates and forces them to play to their best to get any sort of a positive result. I think opponents with much more potential than us finished behind us.

"With all the respect and I hope they don't interpret me in a negative way, if we are playing in a league like the Swiss league and we don't win that league, anything else apart from winning that league would be an very bad season".

Mourinho said the team had a discussion at half-time, and although they did not promise to win the game, they did vow to play as well as they could. "If they play for the manager, they are not good professionals".
