Manchester United skipper Antonio Valencia has insisted that the team is one hundred percent behind under-fire manager Jose Mourinho, after the team had another dull draw against inferior opposition.
The English club could only manage a goalless draw against Valencia in the group stage game of the Champions League, despite the Spanish club having terrible domestic form. However, Valencia insisted that the team is completely behind the manager and that the players are calm and working with a good attitude.
According to Goal,
"No, I have never had any problem with anyone, thank God," Valencia said. "The decision [about the captaincy] is for the coach to make, now we need to see the positives. We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight."
Valencia added: "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."
United play Newcastle United on the weekend and will be hoping that the players can get a win against a team that is struggling to get a win and have only got two points from their seven games.
If the team drop any more points, it will be hard for the club to justify keeping Mourinho as the manager and will want to make a change.
