Manchester United's Jose Mourinho an 'easy target' for criticism, says Wayne Rooney

Zidane's agent: Doesn't expect Frenchman to go to Manchester United

Former Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney urges the players to take responsibility for the club's poor form this season, rather than manager Jose Mourinho.

But in a five-minute span in the second half, United equalised.

Shaw has been one of the standout performers of a largely underwhelming campaign so far, though was often criticised by his manager in previous seasons.

"He's chose to take a year out and he won't go back on that".

Newcastle stormed into a shock 2-0 lead under 10 minutes at Old Trafford on Saturday evening through goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto.

A fresh report from ESPN also adds weight to the feeling that Mourinho isn't quite ready to check out of his Lowry Hotel suite any time soon.

The Portuguese's approach during the start of this campaign has been decidedly abrasive, with a public spat involving Paul Pogba exemplifying problems on and off the pitch. Skriniar and Romagnoli, however, are both 23.

A number of reports indicated that he would be sacked today regardless of the result on Saturday but the manner of the victory may have given him a reprieve over the worldwide break, although many still speculate that he still won't see out the fortnight with Zinedine Zidane a heavy favourite to take over at Old Trafford.

'This time there is a kernel of truth (to the transfer rumours)'.
