Jose Mourinho retains Manchester United backing despite dismal start

United now lie 13th in the table as a result of losing two of their opening three games, but Giggs feels it's time for the club's fans to get behind Mourinho and the players.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho retains the support of the club's board, with executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward confident the coach can help his team recover from a miserable start to the season, sources have told ESPN FC.

But when asked whether he would be a smart bet to replace Mourinho at odds of 12-1, Giggs (right) had the ideal response.

But the pressure has seemingly gotten to Mourinho already as he demonstratively mocked the media that asked him questions after Monday's match. We have just got to pick ourselves back up, keep working hard and we need to pick up points, especially after two losses.

He now has United off to its worst start since the 1992-93 season, the first season of the Premier League in which the Red Devils would still go onto win.

Barcelona defender Gerard Pique believes Manchester City will retain their Premier League title and has backed his former manager Pep Guardiola to get the job done. "I'm sure with the quality of players he will have a game plan to push for the title".

Rojo has not featured for United since the 1-0 win over Watford on May 13 and his return is a welcome boost for Mourinho, who saw Phil Jones limp off with a hamstring injury against Tottenham. Perhaps. Mourinho is the gift that keeps on giving for the back pages, and they'll miss him if he goes, but you can not help but feel he has been the master of his own destruction.

"They have helped me a lot".
