Mourinho slams critics after Man United fightback

It was nearly a replica of arguably the standout result of the Mourinho era, when United roared back from 2-0 down at half-time to Manchester City to win 3-2 at the Etihad in April to delay Pep Guardiola's title party.

Reports in England have claimed Zidane has been in touch with United executives and may even have been asked to snub any other job opportunities in order to wait for the chance to replace Mourinho.

"I think he's one of the most hard-working professionals I have ever seen and to give us the win, he deserves it and I am really happy for him".

"In my football memories, I remember when I beat Liverpool at Anfield 4-0 and I was amazed that the stadium was singing their song, but now I am in a situation where I'm losing 2-0 at home in a match everyone knows is important for us to win, and they were wonderful".

The home side were two goals down before they staged an incredible comeback.

"This is new, it makes me not just a better manager but even a better person".

Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez all scored in the final 20 minutes against Rafael Benitez's side and striker Romelu Lukaku has questioned why Mourinho's team can not always produce such thrilling attacking football.

Given the state of relations between the board and manager at Old Trafford, it was the closest thing to a public show of support that José Mourinho was going to get. These are the games Mourinho's team will be judged in. "I don't see how one good 45 minutes can get rid of all the huge issues that are quite clearly there".

"First half was hard, but after the half-time rest we came back with everything and definitely that first half helped". "I don't want that".

"I will say that today the victory is a pride victory".

Meanwhile, Eric Dier led third-place Tottenham past Cardiff 1-0, and Gylfi Sigurdsson scored a spectacular goal to help Everton defeat Leicester 2-1.

However, Shearer doesn't think the win fixes their issues and has urged the United board to back the boss in January. Mourinho would nearly certainly turn the matter over to his expert legal team and the Mirror says that with "built-in loyalty payments, signing fees and other agreements on top of his £14.5m-a-year annual salary, that amounts to a whopping £29m".
