The Portuguese boss was caught muttering something into the camera as he walked down the touchline
Jose Mourinho is set to be investigated by the Football Association after appearing to make comments into a camera after Manchester United’s win over Newcastle United.
The Red Devils came from two goals down to win 3-2 at Old Trafford, courtesy of Alexis Sanchez’s late header.
For Mourinho, it will have been a tremendous relief after being questions about his future have lingered all week – with reports even suggesting he was going to be sacked regardless of the result against the Magpies.
Ahead of the match, senior figures at the club strongly denied the claims made in the report. But the tension was still clearly palpable for Mourinho.
Following the win, footage from Saturday shows Mourinho saying something – at one point while looking into a camera – as he heads towards the tunnel following the conclusion of the Premier League contest at Old Trafford.
United claimed victory thanks to a dramatic late fightback after going 2-0 down early on, with Juan Mata scoring in the 70th minute, Anthony Martial in the 76th and Alexis Sanchez in the 90th as their four-game winless streak in all competitions came to an end.
Speaking exclusively to talkSPORT, Mourinho revealed he had received a text message from the board, assuring him of his position.
Mourinho claimed after the match that he may have been convinced he was set for the sack if he had not received a text message that morning from a senior United figure – understood to be Ed Woodward – which told him to “ignore what you are going to read and do your job”.
