Luke Shaw has revealed Jose Mourinho gave Manchester United’s players a ‘very strong’ half-time team talk and a ‘kick up the a***’ as they overturned a two-goal deficit to beat Newcastle United 3-2 at Old Trafford. It looked set to be another disappointing afternoon for the Red Devils, but goals from Juan Mata, Anthony Martial and Alexis Sanchez got them over the line. It had been suggested that Mourinho was set to lose his job regardless of the result against Rafael Benitez’s side, but the rousing second half display made it nearly impossible for the former Chelsea and Real Madrid head coach to be dismissed.

Shaw was impressed with his manager’s half-time team talk, with Mourinho not pulling any punches in his assessment of their performance. He told MUTV: ‘If I’m honest yeah 100% as soon as we came out in the second a lot of strong words were said at half time in the changing room. ‘I think everything of what was said was correct, 2-0 down at half time against Newcastle at home is really bad, and it helped us, it helped us we came out a new side in the second half.
