Mourinho reveals thoughts on claims he would be sacked

Jose Mourinho admits he “would have been convinced” that Manchester United were going to sack him if he hadn’t received a text assuring him otherwise.

United’s build-up to Saturday evening’s game against Newcastle was overshadowed with reports over the manager’s position on Friday.

The Daily Mirror reported the exclusive that Mourinho would be sacked regardless of the result at Old Trafford.

United moved to deny those claims by Saturday morning, but Mourinho looked in imminent danger when Newcastle took an early 2-0 lead at Old Trafford.

The hosts eventually recovered to leave more questions than answers, with even M0urinho admitting that Friday’s story had him doubting himself.

“The ones that read the papers, that are connected with social media, they thought maybe I had gone,” he said.

“If I hadn’t had an SMS from my board not to read I would have been convinced too.”
