Manchester United’s dressing room still support manager Jose Mourinho, with the rest waiting for the club to sack him, the UK Sun reports.
Mourinho has endured a tumultuous third season at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils in sixth place, ahead of Sunday’s trip to Liverpool.
The Portuguese has had run-ins with Paul Pogba, Anthony Martial, Eric Bailly and Antonio Valencia already this season and is furious at the club’s board, for what he perceives as a failure to back him in the transfer market.
However, the Sun claims United’s 2-2 draw against Southampton at the start of the month, was a turning point for the squad.
They found themselves two down against Mark Hughes’ Saints and though they mounted a comeback, they failed to claim three points.
One senior star who still backs Mourinho, is said to have revealed the squad has now almost unanimously turned against him and believe he will be sacked.
His backroom staff are also said to have been irked by his behaviour and believe they will outlast him at Old Trafford.
