Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho said speculation over his future had become a "manhunt" and that the atmosphere it has generated has been impacting his players. Beating Newcastle, at home, is not a told-you-so moment.
"I think there is too much talk".
And now the Portuguese wants the board to make it public during the worldwide break they have full faith in him as manager.
In a five-minute span in the second half, United equalised.
Arnold, executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward's right-hand man, interrupted a post-match interview to congratulate the United boss following the dramatic 3-2 win on Saturday evening.
The report further claims that United used the same tactic when bringing Mourinho into the club.
It took United another 60 minutes to finally come back in the game via Juan Mata. Six minutes later, Anthony Martial cut inside after swapping passes with Paul Pogba to equalise with a venomous low shot.
"At half-time we were losing 2-0 and the fans were magnificent to the team".
The former Chelsea manager added: "I think this is not about me, it is about the football club, the club they love and about the club we represent with all the honour and dignity but I'm amazed by that".
The Theatre of Dreams reverberated to the sound of boos at half-time and although United showed some steel to shatter Newcastle's own fantasy of three points, it couldn't mask another worrying display from a side that look shorn of confidence.
"We needed to change something and when you have nothing to lose you just throw yourself blindly, let's say". "So are we papering over the cracks because they came back?"
It comes after The Sun last week claimed that Zidane was in pole position to replace Mourinho. United's fixtures after the worldwide break are Chelsea, Juventus (home and away), Everton, Bournemouth and Manchester City.
He followed that up in the next season with a league and Champions League double before signing off with another European victory.
This time City could deliver the final nail in the coffin.
Some people believe it's a turning point in United's season and Mourinho's tenure at Old Trafford.
