Jose Mourinho was sent to the stands by referee Craig Pawson at Southampton in September

"I think he has done absolutely fantastic and I would love to see him here until he is in his 30s as I think he has got so much potential to come".

United, whose leading players include Paul Pogba and David de Gea, are now second in the 20-team English Premier League.

The defeat against Tottenham ended Manchester United's winning run of five games across all competitions, but they bounced back with a huge win over Huddersfield.

The Chilean has opened his account for Manchester United and will be chomping at bits to build on his man-of-the-match display against Huddersfield Town as the Red Devils enter a hectic run of fixtures.

Jose Mourinho has offered his backing to Newcastle United boss Rafa Benitez, despite the two having a hard relationship in the past.

He said: "We played 16 times when he was at Chelsea, so we know each other really well. But I try and I make an effort and I'm happy with the way things are going". I like the Geordies. I lost, and I drew a few times.

Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Nemanja Matic were among the United players wrapping up warm as they drove into their Carrington training base.

"It's important to get a call like this, to know you're wanted by a big coach like him".

Put to the United boss that it is not easy to manage Newcastle, he said: "I believe but I am not the person to say why because what I know from the club is the incredible army of fans, a city that lives for the club and supports the club".

"There are so many awards - performance of the week, manager of the month and this and that - they should give one to the guy that behaves best on the touchline and it should be the fourth official to vote".

"But if you ask me if they will be in the Championship next season, I say immediately no way".

The result fired Newcastle to the top of the Premiership, three points clear of Liverpool in second.

United defenders Eric Bailly and Daley Blind are both expected to return from ankle injuries before the end of February, while midfielder Marouane Fellaini will not make his comeback until at least March as he recovers from knee surgery.
