Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho revealed he had received a text message of support from the English giants' board ahead of his team's thrilling 3-2 win over Newcastle at Old Trafford Saturday. Speculation over Mourinho's position mounted before kickoff following United's poor start to the season and, with his team trailing 2-0 inside 10 minutes, the Portuguese boss looked like he could be on his way out.Mourinho, who had sent Juan Mata on after just 19 minutes, sprinted down the tunnel at halftime and made further changes, bringing on Marouane Fellaini and playing Paul Pogba in a deeper role to have him see more of the ball.Mourinho's men, however, got back into the game with 20 minutes left when, after Anthony Martial was tripped on the edge of the box, Mata planted a magnificent free kick past the Newcastle wall and into the corner of the net.
