"I'm still very much a fan of Tottenham, so I want them to win something". When a scarf was thrown his way, he tucked it under his arm and continued his part in the mutual appreciation.

Mourinho is at the front of the firing line with odds on him being the first Premier League manager of the season to lose his job already being slashed after two consecutive defeats. It was a show.

Spurs ended their drab recent record at Old Trafford with a sensational 3-0 win, heaping more misery on Jose Mourinho and Manchester United in the process.

Mourinho´s sour mood hasn´t been reserved just for his players, but also the club´s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward for a perceived lack of backing in the transfer window.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has responded to claims he's lost the support of the players by insisting there can be no unity in the club without him.

As Mourinho walked away from the presser, he called out, "Respect, please". And then the result was 2-0, but the team was in the game. "But don't waste your time because today I had the proof that the best judge in football are the supporters. They were better in the first half but we dominated from then on".

The France global is keen to move on from Manchester United due to a lack of playing time, but the Red Devils have so far rejected all approaches for him. They care that he has contributed to a characterless shambles of a defensive unit on the field and has openly criticised directors and players alike in public over the last couple of months.

Still, it's hard to escape the idea that this is the beginning of the end for Mourinho at United. Far from dealing with their dirty laundry in private, the manager has exposed the club's carcass for the rest of the world to feast off. He even said he thought his team could have been up 3-0 in the first half, while also applauding the fans. Unlike Mourinho, they are not usually the type to draw undue attention when things are not going to plan. Moura grabbed a second with six minutes left. Normally when you play well you win it, and that's what I try not to let go away with the score.

While boss Mauricio Pochettino didn't add to his squad, he did however manage to keep all of his star assets in North London, and there's a growing feeling that Spurs could mount a prominent title challenge this term, while they will be expected to challenge for both domestic and European trophies.

But the tension was bubbling and by the time he reached his press conference, he was ready to explode. The most important thing is to keep calm.
