Nemanja Matic has insisted that the pressure is not affecting Jose Mourinho at Manchester United this season.

The Red Devils boss has been in the headlines for all the wrong reasons this term after his side’s stuttering start to the new campaign.

Manchester United have lost two of their opening four Premier League games to leave them six points behind early leaders Liverpool FC in the race for the title.

Mourinho has cut a frustrated figure at Old Trafford in recent weeks, and he walked out of his post-match news conference following the 3-0 loss to Tottenham earlier this month.

Manchester United did managed to return to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon when they claimed a 2-0 victory over Burnley away from home.

And despite all of the negative media attention, Red Devils midfielder Matic insists that Mourinho seems to be coping with the pressure very well.

Speaking in an interview with quoted by Metro, Matic said: “No, no. I think he’s dealing very well with the pressure.

“That’s why he’s here in Manchester United. I don’t see any difference.”

Manchester United will return to Premier League action after the international break when they take on Watford away from home later this month.

The Red Devils have not won the Premier League title since their final triumph under Sir Alex Ferguson in 2013.
