Mourinho was speaking after United came from 2-0 down at half-time against Newcastle to win 3-2, thanks to Alexis Sanchez's 90th-minute header.

"Every ball around our box was nearly a goal or some mistake, a bad decision, panic".

Mata pulled one back three minutes later, chipping a free kick from 20 yards over the wall and curled it into the bottom near corner, and after a flurry of chances, including attempts by Fellaini, Chris Smalling and Pogba, it was Anthony Martial who provided the equaliser in the 76th minute.

But after Mourinho made his final change in the 67th minute, sending Sanchez on for Marcus Rashford, United stormed forward.

Those rumours, however, were later quashed by the club themselves, but the feeling still remains that Mourinho is living on borrowed time in the Old Trafford dugout.

United's problems are systemic and has, over time, eroded the bond between Mourinho in his team, culminating in either tactical dysfunction or the kind of kitchen sink performance seen at the end against Newcastle.

Following Sky Sports" coverage of Brighton's win over West Ham, the Red Devils legend launched into a five-minute tirade against player-power, executives being in "Football Manager" mode and a "rotten to the core' situation at Old Trafford.

The result is also said to have been the last straw as it relates to the decision on Mourinho's future at the club.

While the Magpies boss' tactics may have not racked up the points, by adapting a defensive style when playing the so-called big sides in the league, he frustrates and forces them to play to their best to get any sort of a positive result.

"Newcastle will go there for a 0-0 but United will eventually break them down".

And Collymore says United must sack Mourinho due to his dealings with his key players.

"I think there is too much talk, you put in doubt the honesty and professionalism of the players", he added.

"A good professional who works really hard". To be honest I'm furious. I think that is clear.

"Jose Mourinho will get the biggest support of his life tomorrow and I'll be there to give it to him". It is about the football club they love and the football club we represent with honour and dignity.
