Reports have suggested that Mourinho will be sacked regardless of United’s result against Newcastle United on Saturday evening.
The 55-year-old is said to have lose support of his players, while the team were booed off following their goalless draw against Valencia on Tuesday.
But Mourinho is keen to point out that United have yet to lose in the Champions League this season, while Liverpool, City and Spurs have all been beaten in one of their two group games so far.
‘After today’s game we have two weeks, then we go straight into games against Chelsea, in the Premier League, and Juventus, in the Champions League, with two recovery days in between,’ Mourinho said in his matchday programme notes ahead of the game against Newcastle at Old Trafford.

‘For the moment, we have the most points of any English team in the Champions League, and it is a big responsibility for us to maintain that in our next group match against the super team, Juventus.
‘With such huge games coming up later in the month, it would obviously be good for our confidence to end this current run of fixtures with an important victory this afternoon at home.
‘Thank you for your support and I hope you enjoy the game.’
