Mourinho jokes over cost of Man United sacking him

Mourinho jokes over cost of Man United sacking him

United's win, secured by two Romelu Lukaku goals, steadied the ship after successive defeats against Brighton and Tottenham had condemned the club to their worst start for 26 years.

Paul Pogba had the opportunity to put the match out of sight but had his penalty saved by Joe Hart and Marcus Rashford's red card left a sour taste in the mouth. I feel that I need to see the followers.

Speaking to the club's official website after the game, Dalot said: 'It was nice, the atmosphere was good, I can imagine if the stadium is full and I am very happy to come back.

Mourinho is well aware that there are only so many column inches to fill and the more the press focus on his interviews, the less they will scrutinise his players and their performances.

A banner protesting against executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward was flown over the ground before kick-off, but United were not distracted from the job at hand in the early exchanges, with Jesse Lingard missing three chances in a dominant opening spell.

Mourinho will be aiming for his Manchester United side to establish themselves as one of the main contenders for the title this season. "It was a kid and a very experienced man. Bardsley's been in the game for 20 years and Marcus is a naive boy".

Nemanja Matic believes Jose Mourinho is "dealing very well with the pressure" at Manchester United, amid talk he was close to the sack.

"I don't know what happened". I for one am fully behind him and what he is looking to do at United at this current time.

Lukaku opened the scoring after 25 minutes and then scored again right on half time which the Clarets manager described as "a real sickener".

Given the delicate political situation at Old Trafford, the afternoon was as notable for events off the field as on it.

"We should score many more goals".

"Yes, we could have done better with it, but equally, it hits Chas (Taylor) and lands right in his path".

"(Referee Jonathan) Moss had a good game, a good performance, really.

The result has eased the pressure a little on Mourinho who now ventures into the global break with a smile back on his face, and the support of many fans, but he knows full well that a defeat at high-flying Watford in their next outing would hurl him back into the pressure put.

Mourinho, though, had looked relaxed even before kick-off, joking with officials in the tunnel and shaking hands with players from both teams as they exited the dressing rooms.
