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

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).

They had seen Anthony Martial, another player who divides fan opinions, equalise after being set up by Paul Pogba on a insane evening of football in which a 70th minute Juan Mata free-kick had propelled United back into the game.

Neville believes that the United board must now show support to Mourinho, both vocally but also financially in the transfer market when it re-opens in January.

It looks unlikely that we will see Zidane in the Old Trafford dugout any time soon.

According to the Sun, the move was suggested by Pogba himself after Mourinho asked his players for their input in the dressing room at half-time.

"I think they saw today we tried everything, and we came back and from the mental point of view it's a very important three points".

Even before their team had gone 2-0 up with goals from Kenedy and Yoshinori Muto that left the home side reeling.

Goals from Alexandre Lacazette (2), Aaron Ramsey and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (2) wrapped up a convincing win in Ozil's absence. The Gunners produced some wonderful football for the thumping victory.

But Alexis Sanchez capped United's incredible second-half comeback when he rose to meet Ashley Young's cross and head in the winning goal in the final minute of the game.

As for Rafa Benitez and Newcastle, losing from two goals up will be a bitter pill to swallow. We still talk, and our relationship is good.

"Obviously, they changed things, and they were really playing with four strikers at the same time".

"We came out different, the way we were much better in the second much quicker and more direct, and more like the United in the old days".

"We couldn't afford another defeat, we couldn't afford another disappointment, especially for the fans".

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

"They continued pushing and pushing, and it was hard to defend. I've got the feeling in the last few months that the club have retreated a little bit on him in the transfer market".
