Jose Mourinho facing end of United reign

"Any manager would struggle at that football club with the way that the recruitment is handled, the way in which it is operated", Neville said on Sky Sports, where he serves as an analyst.

Similarly to Conte, Blanc, as a defender could do wonders in helping United's current centre-back options as well as tempting new blood to the club.

Jose Mourinho was looking for a reaction from his Manchester United players against Newcastle United on Saturday evening.

Speculation has been mounting over the past few days that the Portuguese could be on his way out of Old Trafford following the club's worst start to a season in 29 years. A 3-1 loss at West Ham was followed up by a boring 0-0 draw with Valencia, with Eric Bailly's hopeful long-range punt from 40 yards drifting aimlessly wide summing up their performance in a microcosm.

Neville's incredible four-minute rant highlighted the fact that United had seen four managers since the retirement of Sir Alex Ferguson, suggesting that the problems came in the club's boardroom.

United's last victory was a 3-0 Champions League win over Young Boys in mid-September, since when Mourinho's side have drawn three games and lost one. "You have to look at not the manager but the people who are bringing them in, the people signing the players and sanctioning the deals". I have to respect an opponent, I have to respect a manager with an history of trophies and know-how.

It's felt in recent weeks that Mourinho has started to lose the dressing room and Robson's tweet only emphasises that idea.

Mourinho praised Rafael Benítez, the Newcastle manager. He's not the man who stormed into English football in 2004 and off-pitch issues between then and now have affected his personality, with his stint at Real Madrid effectively driving him to breaking point, of which there has been no U-turn in his personality.

What TV channel is Manchester United vs Newcastle on?

With the glare of the media spotlight now focused firmly on Mourinho, the cracks in both team selection and tactics grow larger with each passing week. Some reports suggest that United officials could show Mourinho the door during next week's worldwide break.

Asked why United were misfiring, Mourinho said: "For many different reasons".
