Manchester United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward has scheduled clear-the-air talks with manager Jose Mourinho on Thursday, according to reports
Both Ed Woodward and Jose Mourinho are understood to have endured a fractious relationship since Woodward failed to sign any of the Portuguese top transfer targets during the summer
United’s poor form on the field and relentless reports of fallouts with players off it have led to Mourinho’s job coming under intense scrutiny, to the point where he was reportedly just one game away from the sack.
Last Saturday’s dramatic comeback win over Newcastle United is understood to have been enough to buy Mourinho more time, but The Express reports that his job is still under threat if the club’s form does not improve.
Woodward will now meet the Red Devils manager in an attempt to clear the air, with Mourinho hopeful that he will be reassured of his position amid claims that United are already lining up a successor.
