Zidane puts in call to Man Utd boss Mourinho

Manchester United have now made their worst start to a top flight season since the 1989/90 campaign, suffering three losses in their opening seven Premier League fixtures.

United go into Tuesday's Champions League game with Valencia on the back of successive defeats by Derby County and West Ham, and though Mourinho would not reveal whether he has had conversations with the executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward on the subject he does not believe his days in Manchester are numbered.

Sanchez wouldn't be the first creative player Mourinho has failed to get the best out of.

"There was no "I don't like what we're doing". All my life I play with pressure, also my teammates.

Huth, who won the Premier League with Chelsea and Leicester City both, is now a free agent after failing to agree to a contract extension with the Foxes in the summer.

United have 10 points from seven league games.

But Pogba did not hold back in his apparent criticism of United's tactics in a tame draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers at Old Trafford, saying the team should "attack, attack, attack" at home in what was widely regarded as a barb at Mourinho's gameplan. "They would do everything for him but at the moment it's not quite there", the 34-year-old added.

United have reportedly held initial talks with former Real Madrid chief Zidane, who is now a free agent.

Instead of allaying Mourinho's fears, it has left him believing that he is likely to be replaced by Zidane. When asked whether he wanted to stop and talk, the midfielder smiled, laughed and said: "You want me dead?" "What I can do to improve things I do, and I will improve the things at the club that depend on me and my work, but it's a collective thing".

Mourinho's public spats with the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial have dominated the headlines over the last few months and have affected the team's performances on the pitch, but Shaw told Sky Sports that he feels there's no excuses for the players not putting the effort in to try and win matches.

Asked if some of his players do not care, Mourinho said: "I think that some care more than others". It just wasn't good enough from us. "We had a couple of bad ones before that, but in the last three games we have been brilliant".
