Newcastle United manager Rafael Benitez could have two players back, but three of his squad will miss their trip to Old Trafford to take on Manchester United on Saturday evening.

Sacking Mourinho would cost United an estimated £20million and despite his tumultuous stint at Old Trafford, he is unlikely to be out of the game for long given his wonderful record of winning trophies.

Gary Neville launched a passionate defence of Mourinho on Sky Sports in reaction to the breaking story, claiming "there's something rotten to the core" at Old Trafford.

But the United players suddenly found it within themselves to fight back at last against a Newcastle team no doubt shocked to find themselves in such a commanding position and trying to consolidate their lead. It's been my life, it's given me everything and I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change, and it isn't the manager.

"If this is true, we don't know if it's true, but if this is true, and Jose Mourinho is going to walk out at Old Trafford tomorrow nearly like a dead man walking, those fans will absolutely turn towards that boardroom". It's an absolute disgrace. Senior club players called for his sacking in December itself but the owners made a decision to stick with him until Manchester United mathematically failed to enter the Champions League.

Jose Mourinho will not give up without a fight and neither, it seems, will his Manchester United players.

But he said the nomination would be over if it was revealed Kavanaugh had lied to the committee in his testimony. Agents spoke with Mark Judge, a friend of Kavanaugh's who Ford said was in the room when she was assaulted.

Is this it? Could today's match really be Jose Mourinho's last in charge of Manchester United? I don't want that, and if I could tell them to not do it I would, because it is not about me, it is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity. "It is life I love and since I was kid I work for this". It's given me everything.

United need a manager who will bring attractive football to the club, so who better than one of the true innovators of the style?

He adds: "I'm furious at thinking this has broken out".
