Details Of Leaked Message Man. United Board Sent To Jose Mourinho (Read)
Jose Mourinho has disclosed that he received a text message from a Manchester United board member on Friday night; after it had been reported he would be shown the exit door.
The Portuguese is under pressure at Old Trafford and it was claimed he would be fired, no matter the results against Newcastle on Saturday.
With the tide against him, his side was 2-0 down at half time, it seemed almost inevitable that he would go. But goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez reversed the trend to keep Mourinho in the job.
The former Real Madrid and Chelsea manager described the media assessment as a “manhunt” afterwards.
“The ones that read the papers that are connected with social media; they thought maybe I had gone.
“If I hadn’t had an SMS from my board not to read [the papers] I would have been convinced too,” Mourinho told TalkSport.
