Bookmaker pays out on Jose Mourinho being sacked as Manchester United manager

A furious Mourinho stormed out of his post-match press conference after taking exception to a journalist's line of questioning.

In an interview with AS, Pique said: "Liverpool are a great team with an opposite style to Guardiola and they have a great lead, we will see the challenge".

"Because we were not unsafe enough, because Sevilla deserved to win the match".

The Mirror say the result leaves Mourinho on the brink, and noted how the United boss' elongated applause towards the Stretford End signalled how his time at Old Trafford could be coming to an end.

Sources have told ESPN FC that United are standing by Mourinho despite the club's worst start to a season since 1992.

"Do you know what this means?" he asked while holding up three fingers (h/t BBC). "Three for me. Two for them".

Putin "told us that his interest and Iran's were not exactly the same", Bolton told Reuters the day before, while he was still in Israel .

As for Pique's former club Manchester United, the centre-back remained coy over the possible transfer of Paul Pogba to Barcelona, with the Spaniard revealing he would welcome the Frenchman to the Camp Nou.

"Respect. Respect. Respect, man. Respect, respect", his voice could be heard echoing from the corridor.

A reportedly strained relationship with his manager has seen plenty of speculation suggesting Martial's future may lie away from United.

Just three matches into the 2018-19 Premier League campaign and the Portuguese manager, the self-proclaimed "Special One", already looks to be in hot water with his club after two-consecutive losses. "I'm sure with the quality of players he will have a game plan to push for the title".

Moura, who joined from Paris Saint-Germain last January, is beginning to show the kind of form that prompted Sir Alex Ferguson to call him "immensely talented" when he was a teenager at Sao Paulo and he admits he is feeling a lot more comfortable with his surroundings in his second season in England.
