Jamie Carragher expects pressure to "ramp up" on Jose Mourinho

By , Senior Reporter | 6mo
Jamie Carragher predicts that Jose Mourinho's future as Manchester United manager will come under scrutiny once again in the coming weeks.

Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher has said that he expects Jose Mourinho's future as Manchester United manager to come under the spotlight again when club action resumes later this week.

The Portuguese has been given a stay of execution by the Red Devils hierarchy following the dramatic 3-2 victory over Newcastle United prior to the international break.

United recovered from two goals down inside the opening 10 minutes to pick up just their fifth win in 11 matches this season - form that has cast doubt over Mourinho's ability to hold on to his position.

Having been given a two-week break from the rumours, Carragher believes that it is inevitable questions will soon be asked of the 55-year-old once again.

"There was so much talk at Manchester United. It was constantly in the press every single day because it was the big story," he told Sky Sports News. "With the internationals, it quietened it all down but there's no doubt it will ramp up again.

"I think there's definitely a run of fixtures in the next three or four weeks before the next international break for Manchester United and Mourinho where all eyes will be on them. It's their first real big away game against the rest of the top six.

"The reason you bring Jose Mourinho to your club is to win the big games. He's been a master at that throughout his career. It was good for them to go into the international break with those three points.

"The way they won there's no better way to win than coming back like that and scoring in the last minute it gives everyone a great lift."

United resume their Premier League campaign with a trip to Mourinho's former club Chelsea on Saturday lunchtime.
