Jose Mourinho offers surprising backing to Newcastle boss Benitez

Rafael Benitez Manager of Newcastle United looks on prior to the Premier League match between Newcastle United and Burnley at St. James Park

Manchester United Manager Jose Mourinho met the media a few hours ago to preview tomorrow's match at Newcastle United F.C.

"He made a big effort".

Newcastle are winless in the Premier League at home for eight consecutive games and could equal an unwanted club record if they fail to beat Manchester United on Sunday. I try to feel English football has some cultural thing with tradition and there are some qualities I really like in the game but maybe I have to cry a little bit and protect my players.

Shaw has had to endure repeated examples of public criticism from Mourinho, continued favouritism of Ashley Young at left-back and the media linking United with a move for Spurs' Danny Rose but his determination has brought an end to his rift with Mourinho.

"I think it's the only stadium in the Premier League [he has not won at], also Huddersfield, but I played there only once", Mourinho said. I already knew a lot about Newcastle and about Alan Shearer.


The Toon have trailed at half-time in only three of their 13 St. James' Park showdowns since promotion so it may pay to support the half-time draw at [2.18], as well as theDraw/Manchester United [4.40] Half-Time/Full-Time proposition at more attractive prices, instead of the straight away win. "It's a different rivalry between the teams (Liverpool and Manchester United), but for us now every game is massive especially when you face a team like Man United".

Attack: We could see Mourinho freshen things up in attack with Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford both pushing for recalls but I think the Frenchman will get the nod on the wing. I can remember many of them, some of the best ones in the country and Benitez is another example. I believe. I am not the person to say why they have struggled for years because what I know from the club is an incredible army of fans and a city which lives for the club. "We're trying to improve that, and the competition will be good for them". It's hard to understand.

Asked if he had come to Newcastle to prove himself all over again, Slimani said: "Yes, that's true, I hope I can show what I'm capable of".

As far as the injury news goes, the United boss confirmed that he will be without defender Daley Blind and Eric Bailly for the trip to Newcastle. They are just one point above the bottom three and have kept just two clean sheets in the last 17 matches.
