Jose Mourinho has suggested he can not say what he really thinks about the situation at Manchester United because it only gives detractors in the media something else to criticise him about.

When asked what he thought of the booing at the end of the game and those shouting "attack, attack, attack", Mourinho replied: "Freedom of speech, especially Manchester United fans who I respect 200 per cent".

After finishing second in the Premier League last season, United are now 10th in the table after seven games, already nine points off league leaders Manchester City.

The pressure is now piled onto the club and Jose even further as they extended their winless run to four games.

It was a damning assessment of the current state of affairs at Old Trafford and only serves to heighten the speculation at the club with Jose Mourinho clearly walking on thin ice during his third season with the club.

United won their first match of the Champions League group stage against Young Boys, but had to make do with a point today.

'What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude.

"Our attacking players aren't in their best moments of confidence and individual level", he added.

"I am sat here surprised he's here after Saturday", he said.

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

"I think his mouth is probably out of control and I think he is embarrassing the club".

"He's coming out in press conferences constantly having a go at players, having a go at the people above for not getting what he wants".

"I think you have enough reasons to criticise me".
