Zinedine Zidane’s agent says he’s not interested in Manchester United

Less sarcastically, the change is that United managed to win a game, destroying Rafael Benitez's soul in a 3-2 win, crowned by an injury-time victor from Alexis Sanchez.

The Daily Mirror reported late on Friday that Mourinho will be replaced as manager regardless of United's result in their Premier League fixture against Newcastle United on Saturday. "I felt that on the pitch, I did not want to feel another sadness feeling, another disappointment feeling".

Despite the Red Devils' problems, Benitez has rejected the suggestion Jose Mourinho's side are "fragile". "Even some of the players, they commit some mistakes that were not normal".

Mourinho made three changes to his starting line-up, with Ashley Young coming in at right-back and assuming the captain's armband in place of Antonio Valencia, who dropped out of the squad entirely, while Scott McTominay replaced Marouane Fellaini in midfield.

'Definitely, they pushed us, they helped us, to go more, to try more, to give this 50 minutes more and I'm very happy for them.

In the Belgian first division, Daichi Kamada scored a penalty for his third goal of the season in Sint-Truiden's 3-1 win over Mouscron.

"When you think who they are, what they are, what brand they are, they have been on the front pages, the back pages and it has not been good".

Mourinho's downward spiral at Old Trafford seems endless, with poor results threatening his job, whilst the woeful atmosphere amongst the players has created added pressure. Because one day, if they like the manager and they play for them, and the next day comes a manager that they don't like and they don't play for him, they still get the money.

"As a friend of mine was saying to me this morning, if it rains in London tomorrow, it´s my fault". "If there (are) some difficulties with the agreements of Brexit, it is my fault". I have to be ready for this. I think about how the club is being operated. It's the life I love.

United's attack did the defence no favours in the 50th minute, with Pogba denied by Newcastle Martin Dubravka from 25 yards despite a deflection and Matic missing the second chance, on an open net, by sending his attempt over the crossbar.
