Manchester United fans call for Mourinho to be sacked

Manchester United had a disappointing weekend as they were stunned by Newcastle United at St James’ Park.

Jose Mourinho does not have the best record at the Magpies’ ground, but United were favourites heading into Sunday’s encounter.

On the day, though, ex-Liverpool manager Rafael Benitez out-mastered his counterpart to claim a 1-0 win.

Matt Ritchie was the scorer of the game, while the Red Devils failed to take their chances.

Most supporters were delighted a few weeks ago when it was announced that Mourinho had signed a new contract at Old Trafford.

After the weekend’s action, some members of the fanbase have turned against the Portuguese coach, whose team sit 16 points adrift of Premier League leaders Manchester City.

In fact, if Pep Guardiola’s team win their next six top-flight matches, they could secure the title on April 4 with a win over United.

Mourinho has come under fire on Twitter for the substitution of Paul Pogba during Sunday’s match, while some have also criticised his treatment of Luke Shaw.

The anti-Mourinho supporters have been airing their disgruntled views on Twitter.
