Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is currently under pressure after his side have struggled in recent games.

United have failed to get a win in the last four games, and the pressure continued when the fans booed after United’s goalless draw against Valencia in the Champions League on Tuesday night.

Reports claim that Mourinho and Valencia had rifts but the United skipper denied such claims.

After the game against Valencia, the 33-year-old was asked if he is fully behind Mourinho, he replied: “100%. He is our boss, we have to be with him and we are fighting.”

Valencia courted further controversy after the draw at Old Trafford when he liked an Instagram post that urged United to axe Mourinho. However, he has now revealed that he did it by mistake.

He said: “Yesterday, I liked a post on Instagram without reading the text that accompanied the picture.

“These are not my views and I apologise for this. I am fully supportive of the manager and my teammates.

“We are all giving our everything to improve the results.”

Valencia has urged the team to bounce back in the game against Newcastle.

He said: “We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight.

“What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude. We haven’t got good results and that’s why rumours arise.”
