Off-field issues seem to be disrupting the squad, with numerous reports of fall-outs between players and the head coach.
However, when asked to assure the fans he was doing all he could to remedy United's problems, Mourinho did not reply. Very, very, very good coach.
'When you looked at the West Ham game last week, that looked like the biggest sign of players not wanting to play for Jose, but I would not sack him. I'm not expecting a lot of goals, to be honest with you. "Players want to enjoy their football and talk up their performances".
Toyota recalls 2.4 million Prius and Auris hybrids over stalling
It's one of the largest recalls for Toyota unrelated to Takata Corp. airbags or 2009's unintended acceleration crisis. Toyota has sold more than 10 million hybrid gasoline-electric vehicles globally, including the Prius, since 1997.
Mourinho expressed confidence that the Premier League table would look different before long - United are now in 10th position - and suggested they would be in for a hard game against Rafael Benitez's Newcastle.
"It's all about giving the lads confidence I think", he said. You could see the way they were running around against Valencia chasing and fighting to show how much they care.
"I think Tuesday was a little bit different in that way". The only way that the Chilean global will remain at United is if Mourinho is sacked, this according to "The Sun".
If Newcastle come and win, say 3-0, then that could be the end but they are far more likely to review the situation following the City match.
Q: You've had a great home record everywhere you've been as a manager, how important is it to return to that this weekend against Newcastle? "When you're not at your best, the stadium is full and the fans aren't happy, and things aren't happening on the pitch it can be a terrible experience".
"The results they had against the top teams didn't get them points yet this season but gave them very close results". It's about giving them a run of games.
