Newcastle’s meeting with Manchester United this weekend could play a decisive role in deciding Jose Mourinho’s immediate future at the club.
The Mirror reports that should the Magpies win on Saturday night, the United manager could be out of a job.
Pressure is mounting on Mourinho after a poor run of form at Old Trafford.
United’s slump continued during the week in the Champions League, as they struggled to a lacklustre draw against Valencia.
There are concerns that the dressing room is turning against the manager, with the likes of Paul Pogba and Anthony Martial coming in for criticism in recent weeks.
Newcastle head into the game desperate for a positive result, with Rafa Benitez’s side holding just two points to their name so far this season.
Sitting inside the bottom three, the Magpies are yet to win this season, but a victory at Old Trafford could spark their campaign into life.
