The news today in the Mirror is basically a republication of what they wrote exactly a week ago.
They report that Rafa’s job as Newcastle is not safe if the takeover is successful and that Jose Mourinho is willing to talk to Sheikh Khaled if offered the management job.
But Jose Mourinho has changed over the years, and in his last couple of jobs, he has looked anything but like a confident manager.
He has not looked happy and fought with his players and the press far too much.
And he was fired in both jobs after both Chelsea and Manchester United were both foundering in the Premier League after spending some big money on players.
We simply don’t believe this story and don’t think Sheikh Khaled would make such a colossal mistake so early on in his tenure at Newcastle.

Newspaper quoting something Mourinho said months ago, this is utter garbage, could have came straight from the desk of KBA. Another case of a so called newspaper fishishg for clicks. #nufc #NUFCTakeover #JoseMourinho

For anyone that would prefer Mourinho over Rafa if this takeover happens have a word with yourself #nufc

If Rafa goes i hope we don’t go for Mourinho. He’s a right miserable sod who falls out with everyone #nufc

I mean, I love Rafa as manager…but I think he needs to speak up and stand up for himself more.. I would love him to stay as he is a great manager…. I also think if we had Mourinho under MA he would be a bit more outspoken towards him..#NUFC

#Mourinho WILL be manager of NUFC at some point. But right now Rafa is the man for the foreseeable future. Jose will want to be loved again and and do what he can for “Mr Robson” – bring a trophy to Newcastle. But Rafa ALL THE WAY, he can win something here (w/ new owners) #nufc

Why is everyone discussing Jose Mourinho like its a foregone conclusion? Taking what the mirror says as gospel, laughable. #nufc

I have it on good authority from my source that:
– #NUFC sale will be completed tomorrow
– Mike Ashley will be drop kicked into the Tyne by Monty The Magpie
– Mbappe will be playing up top with Andy Carroll next season
– Mourinho will be joining as the kit man

Rafa Benitez tried to save #NUFC from relegation and then stayed to manage us as a Championship side.
Mourinho wants to manage us at the 1st hint of oil money? Fuck off.
