The Daily Mail were among those to lead on the taunts from Spurs fans towards Jose of "You're getting sacked in the morning", while the Express picked up on Mourinho's refusal to discuss United's lack of summer activity in the transfer window.

"We must work. We are still Manchester United and we won't give up on anything".

Mourinho demanded more respect from his critics in his post-match press conference following the defeat to Tottenham, and Giggs says he understands the manager's frustrations.

"Like I said, I am sorry for the fans, not just the ones here but the ones at home that have been watching and supporting us".

The England striker sent a looping header into the top corner five minutes into the second half at Old Trafford, following a tightly contested opening period.

Mourinho has been unhappy with certain reports in the media, claiming they are too critical of his side which finished second last season, only behind runaway champions Manchester City.

'So it's a fantastic game to get rid of all that negativity around the club. You know what this means?

"Do you know what this means,"? he asked the room, holding up three fingers.

Experts' picks: Don't bet against Rafael Nadal and Sloane Stephens
Ferrer, who was ranked as high as No. 3 but is now 148th, made clear he plans to play a selective schedule of tournaments in 2019. One of the most eagerly-anticipated matches of the day was between Canadian teenagers Denis Shapovalov and Felix Auger-Aliassime.

"Three for me and two for them", he said, referencing Pep Guardiola and Manuel Pellegrini's English top-flight titles.

He said: "I won more Premierships alone than the other 19 managers together".

"Respect. Respect. Respect, man. Respect, respect", his voice could be heard echoing from the corridor.

Mourinho has been on a collision course with both of the Frenchman for some time.

"So they're not really interested in what Mourinho did at previous clubs or how many titles he won".

Mourinho's side was shut out, 3-0, by Spurs, handing Man United its second straight loss three games into the campaign.

"Burnley was one of the games where I was setting up the cones before the game and I thought: 'I wouldn't mind playing today'".
