"Sometimes things are hard and you have to make difficult decisions, try and influence people around you, influence your players to try and get the best out of them", he said.

The former Chelsea and Real Madrid manager is under intense scrutiny at Old Trafford after a poor start to the season.

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho survived a wild weekend at Old Trafford to escape what he described as a "manhunt" after a awful start to the season.

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.

Three defeats in eight league matches have led to questions about Mourinho's future at United, but both Lampard and Rooney believe the players need to take some responsibility for their current plight.


"I think Jose is still someone that I look up to and admire because managers go through tough times", Neville told Sky Sports. Mourinho threw a Hail Mary and it worked: for 45 minutes, his men did indeed "attack attack attack"-and they got the win, a proper Manchester United win with some onlookers even going".

Shearer said Mourinho will still struggle to turn things around and save his job despite beating Newcastle United 3-2 at the weekend. "He took a lot of stick, but behind closed doors I said to the players, "We have to be doing better", Rooney added.

United are now eighth in the Premier League and already seven points behind the top-three with only eight games played.

"They knew that the team needed help".

However, many think that could just be a stay of execution for Mourinho, who went into the game against the Magpies under a cloud of reports suggesting he would be sacked regardless of the result.
