A morale-boosting win at Burnley has now given Mourinho room for optimism though, following back-to-back defeats against Brighton and Tottenham.

Mourinho was in jubilant mood after Romelu Lukaku’s brace sealed a 2-0 win at Turf Moor – telling La Repubblica there’s no chance his job is in jeopardy.

He said: “They say I’m in danger, but I don’t think so.

“If they sent me away, do you have any idea how much money they would have to give me?!”

Mourinho’s relationship with executive vice-chairman, Ed Woodward, has been heavily scrutinised in recent weeks.

The 55-year-old has been frustrated with the lack of summer transfer activity, having only brought in Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk, youngster Diogo Dalot from Porto and Lee Grant as third-choice goalkeeper.

While fans have criticised Mourinho for his behaviour, most notably his press conference meltdown after the 3-0 defeat to Tottenham, he still maintains plenty of support from the fanbase.

This was underlined when United fans flew an anti-Ed Woodward plane titled ‘specialist in failure’ over Turf Moor on Sunday.

When jokingly asked to admit that it was he who paid for the fly-over, Mourinho replied: “No… but I could have!”

United return to action after the international break with a tough trip to Watford – who have won all four of their league games to date.
