Manchester United stand by José Mourinho and see cause for hope

Mousa Dembele slides in to deny Manchester United's Romelu Lukaku

When I was assistant at United, Burnley was one of the games where I was setting up the cones and I was thinking "I wouldn't mind playing today".

The club will say it's supporting Jose but we all saw what happened with Louis [van Gaal in 2016].

"Everyone in the dressing room is really sad, especially after the first half we had and especially a big thank you to the fans for the way they supported us, even when we were down 3-0, was fantastic".

Although the game remained goalless at half-time, United had created several chances, with Romelu Lukaku missing one clear opportunity to score.

Those fans that stayed sang manager Jose Mourinho's name at the full-time whistle but it was a group of other "supporters" who grabbed the headlines as they inexplicably took selfies with Spurs' star and Man of the Match, Lucas Moura.

"Like I said, I am sorry for the fans, not just the ones here but the ones at home that have been watching and supporting us".

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

Meanwhile, Pochettino has guided Tottenham to a 100 percent start to the new season and Cundy thinks the Argentine would be a huge success at Old Trafford.

"We've just got to start taking our chances and I am sure we will start winning more games".

"It's freakish. Today, we were determined, we started well, and in the end we lost 3-0". Perhaps. Mourinho is the gift that keeps on giving for the back pages, and they'll miss him if he goes, but you can not help but feel he has been the master of his own destruction.

"But, look, we have a really good spirit, a really good group of lads and a group that want to work, want to achieve big things here".
