Manchester United captain Antonio Valencia insists that the entire squad is 100% behind coach Jose Mourinho

The Portuguese’s woes at United continued on Tuesday night after being held to a goalless draw at home to Valencia in the Champions League.

It means that United have now gone four games without victory in all competitions amid a number of reported falling outs between Mourinho and a number of his own players.

“One hundred per cent. He is our boss, we have to be with him and we are fighting,” said Valencia, when asked if he still backs Mourinho, on Goal.

The Ecuadorian full-back himself denied rumours of a falling out between himself and Mourinho.

“No, I have never had any problem with anyone, thank God,” Valencia said. “The decision [about the captaincy] is for the coach to make, now we need to see the positives.

“We played an important game and got a point, now we have a game against Newcastle and we need to fight.”

He added: “What I can say from the inside is that the lads are calm, working every day with a good attitude. We haven’t got good results and that’s why rumours arise.”

United drop to second place in Group H with four points and they will next host leaders Juventus at Old Trafford on October 23 in the Champions League.
