However, Mourinho was speaking to the press ahead of his side’s clash with Valencia, and was defiant.
Mourinho was asked if he thought he would be sacked, and said to the press: “No. I don’t think so.”
He also got asked about any meetings with Ed Woodward, and refused to answer the question, saying: “That is a private matter, I am not asking you. It is a private matter, I am not going to answer to you.”
Players and their issues
Along with results being poor, Mourinho has other issues. The biggest is of course the rumours surrounding his relationship with Paul Pogba.
There have been suggestions Mourinho has lost the United dressing room.
As with many pressers this season, Mourinho was asked about his players.
He noted that some are trying harder than others, saying: “I think some care more than others.”
He also went on, adding: “After 20 years of football I am still the kid I was 20 years ago, and I am still naive.
“But I still don’t believe a player is not honest. Ask people with great reputations in the game if they ever went to a game not to try to give their best.
“If somebody tells me ‘I was a player and on one occasion I didn’t give my best’, then I’ll change my opinion. Until somebody with a big reputation tell me ‘I was a dishonest player’, I will always believe the players are honest.”
