Manchester United should stick with José Mourinho - and give him some money

Paper Round Mourinho on the brink after spectacular post-match meltdown

Paper Round Mourinho on the brink after spectacular post-match meltdown

Shaw will surely get another chance to start this weekend after another bright United display, while an England recall when Gareth Southgate names his first squad since the World Cup on Thursday would be deserved.

The situation is complex, according to French radio station RMC, as Mourinho wants the forward to be sold.

And finally, in his crowning achievement on a very bad night, Mourinho attempted to remind everyone of his past Premier League accomplishments, holding up three fingers and saying: "Do you know what this means? 3-0".

Sixteen years ago today, Rio Ferdinand made his Manchester United debut in a Champions League qualifier against the Hungarian side Zalaegerszeg.

In his first season as Real Madrid's manager in 2010-11, Jose Mourinho led the team to its first Copa del Rey title in 18 years.

Mourinho sent out a message on Monday night by dropping Martial from the matchday squad; the forward is not injured.

"A lot has been said about transfers or the lack of them but there is something to be said about keeping the group together", said Kane.

With his team trailing by three goals and Old Trafford rapidly emptying around him, Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho stood in his technical area and stared blankly onto the field. And the only way to do that is to come to places like Old Trafford and get the three points. Against Leicester and Brighton, he played with a 4-3-3 and against Tottenham, deployed a 3-5-2 with Ander Herrera at the back, which was unsuccessful.

Nemanja Matic was one of six United alterations, with the defensive midfielder forming part of a back three. We started the game really well, but we conceded two goals in the second half.

Shortly after halftime, Spurs punished some feeble defending. In his third, Mourinho clashed with almost everyone - his players, other coaches, referees, journalists - and would eventually step down, calling the season "the worst of my career".

"Whenever you're playing in these games away from home the first goal is so important", Kane told Sky Sports.

Moura added his second of the evening in the 84th, superbly beating Chris Smalling and firing into the bottom corner after a swift break to seal a 3-0 win.

Tottenham Hotspur's Mauricio Pochettino said Jose Mourinho, his counterpart at Manchester United, has been "inspirational" to a number of managers who are younger than he is.

Paper Round's view: Is this the end?

The Portuguese takes his team to Burnley on Sunday before the worldwide break and unless there is a defeat of an alarming nature Mourinho is unlikely to be sacked before the visit of Watford on 15 September.
