Jose Mourinho fires back at Paul Scholes after 'embarrassing' tirade

If he's still in charge when January arrives, there are four players Mourinho should consider who could solve United's centre-back problem.

"I was asked after the game if I still think he is the right fit - and I think he still could be".

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho called for his players to play for "the crest" before their Champions League stalemate with Valencia. "I think you have enough reasons to criticise me", he said.

"I'm actually slightly surprised he survived after Saturday, the performance was so bad", the former England midfielder told BT Sport ahead of the Champions League clash with Valencia on Tuesday.

José Mourinho defended his players after their latest stuttering performance, claiming he was pleased with the effort and commitment even if there were things he would rather not say about certain aspects of the 0-0 draw with Valencia. We tried to play but in some crucial phases we didn't have the technical quality to build from the back.

Air Niugini reported it was working with the embassy and the passenger's travel facilitator to contact his family. Air Niugini links its region to well-known destinations such as Bali, Tokyo, Singapore and cities in Australia.

United are up against Juventus in their next two Champions League games, as they will host the Italian giants on October 23 before the reverse fixture in Turin on Nov 7.

"I wanted a game like this", said Dybala, who has struggled for form since Ronaldo's arrival and started several games on the bench.

Next up for Mourinho and United is a home match against Newcastle in the Premier League this weekend. "He said what he wants to say, I'm not interested, honestly, I'm not interested".

After executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward denied Mourinho the chance to sign a centre-back over the summer, the United boss has continued to criticise his lack of depth at the back in nearly every press conference.
