Manchester United’ board of directors have given manager Jose Mourinho the full backing despite Sunday’s 3-2 Premier League defeat at Brighton & Hove Albion.
The Portuguese has been heavily criticized for Sunday’s result and performance.
Mourinho is the favourite to be the next Premier League manager to leave his job, with suggestions that former Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane is being considered as a potential replacement.
The former Chelsea manager was disappointed by the failure to make more outfield signings during the off-season transfer window beyond Brazil midfielder Fred and teenage Portuguese full-back Diogo Dalot who is injured.
The Red devels next face Totteham Hotspur in the Premier League at Old Trafford on Monday night (21h00).
