However, after a superb second-half fightback saw United grab a 90th-minute victor through Alexis Sanchez, Mourinho was at his abrasive best during the post-match interview.

Mourinho insisted he wouldn't be affected by the doubters claiming he has lost control of his club and is destined for the axe.

Jose Mourinho accused his critics of staging a "manhunt" to get him sacked after Manchester United rescued their under-fire manager with a dramatic 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday (Oct 6).

"I do not think that he will manage in England", Migliaccio told Le Journal du Dimanche (via Goal).

'The boys woke up this morning and they didn't know if I was going to be here or not. If United conceded twice at home to Newcastle, imagine what will happen when they take on Maurizio Sarri's Chelsea and Pep Guardiola's Manchester City over the coming weeks.

"Mourinho's Red "n" White army", hollered fans in the stand. "Jose Mourinho", chimed in another section around J Stand. "Man United will never die". Not for the title, but Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford.

'Definitely, they pushed us, they helped us, to go more, to try more, to give this 50 minutes more and I'm very happy for them.

After several good chances, United equalised through Anthony Martial in the 76th minute before Alexis Sanchez provided the victor in the 90th.

Having been linked with Manchester United, Zinedine Zidane's agent appears to have all but ruled out a move to the Premier League for the former Real Madrid coach.

"I'm amazed", said Mourinho when asked about their backing. These are the games Mourinho's team will be judged in. "They give me the contract because they wanted to give it me".

"First half was hard, but after the half-time rest we came back with everything and definitely that first half helped".

This could be a pivotal moment in Mourinho's reign, coming back from two goals down against a Newcastle team who deserved at least a point, but ended up defeated.

But Pogba's early shot was only parried by Martin Dubravka, the ball falling to Nemanja Matic who somehow cleared the open goal from six yards with a miss which summed up United's woes. "That's what the fans want to see, that's the way we want to play".
