Inter's Skriniar Wanted By Manchester United

Wayne Rooney has thrown his support behind his embattled former manager Jose Mourinho, telling those Manchester United team-mates he once played alongside that they have under-performed in recent weeks and must take their share of the responsibility.

Jose Mourinho is set to be investigated by the Football Association for comments made towards television cameras following Manchester United 3-2 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

United have only managed five wins in all competitions since the start of the season and reports at the weekend suggested Mourinho would lose his job regardless of the result against Newcastle.

He said in his "Team of the Week" column for BBC Sport: "Jose Mourinho owes Paul Pogba an apology".

He wishes to receive a public vote of confidence but The Telegraph note that "it is not United's style, or that of any big club, to make such a move and he [Mourinho] knows that".

Last week, after Manchester United's winless run extended to four games, it was reported in English publication, The Sun, that Zidane would succeed Mourinho at Old Trafford.

Upon Further Review: No. 1 Alabama at Arkansas
Tagovailoa has thrown one more touchdown pass (18) than Greg McElroy threw in Alabama's entire 2009 national championship season. Tagovailoa connected with wide receiver Jerry Jeudy twice on passes of 42 and 60 yards for his last two scores of the afternoon.

Aubameyang: Arsenal must maintain winning mentality
He was a constant threat to the Fulham defence and took both of his goals with aplomb to set Arsenal on their way to a fine win. Alexandre Lacazette's double and a goal of the season contender from Aaron Ramsey, inspired a 5-1 rout of Fulham on Sunday.

As vote looms, Kavanaugh makes final argument
As the women yelled at him from the hallway, Hatch waved and told them to "grow up" as he entered an elevator surrounded by aides. For his part, Kavanaugh testified he was "100 percent certain" none of the alleged incidents of sexual misconduct occurred.

It's believed Mourinho may have made the gesture in response to those criticising his troubled reign at Old Trafford.

But the £89m man showed why he was held in such high esteem by the United chiefs, who refused to sell him to Barcelona this summer.

The second half saw the French midfielder play one of his best matches of the season, before Alexis Sanchez claimed a dramatic late victor.

The report claims that each player is valued at around £40m, though it's not clear if United are prioritising one over the other or if Mourinho is pushing to sign both.

'There are not enough of them to help you through it'.
