Former Manchester United captain Gary Neville said he was "furious" amid reports that club boss Jose Mourinho could be dismissed as manager after Saturday's game against Newcastle regardless of the result.
Asked why it was so hard to get the players working together with team spirit, the United boss said: "Because sometimes things are not just in the manager's hands".
Who do you think would be the flawless replacement for Mourinho if United decide to sack him?
United are struggling in 10th place in the Premier League, without a home win in any competition since the opening weekend of the season.
The 55-year-old Mourinho defended himself in his Friday press conference, called for the earlier-than-usual time of 8:00 am (0700 GMT), which lasted for eight minutes and 29 seconds.

According to law enforcement sources, Cristy was in class at a school in Sunrise, FL, when she suddenly fell out of her desk. Fellow contestant Ashley Spivey told Us Weekly , "I'm absolutely heartbroken about Cristy".
"But we are in a position that we can do much better than that and to do that we need points".
"We are better than this and, because we are better than this, our situation is going to improve".
He adds: "I'm furious at thinking this has broken out".
"I wouldn't go with Zidane", he said on Virgin Media Sport.
"Enough is enough for me". I'm not turning on my football club, but I have to say, something has to change; and it isn't the manager. Not since 1999 have Manchester United gone five games without a win, and we predict they will avoid equalling another unwanted record this weekend.
"I hope it's not true, but if it is true I think it's an absolute disgrace", he insisted.
