Nemanja Matic believes Jose Mourinho is dealing very well with the pressure at Manchester United, amid talk he was close to the sack.

The Manchester United manager came under fire after the club lost back-to-back matches to Brighton and Tottenham Hotspur before a 2-0 win away to Burnley eased concerns.

Mourinho cut a frustrated figure in pre-season as Manchester Uniteds hierarchy failed to deliver his summer targets and he has had several outbursts after coming under increased pressure following their poor start.

But Matic believes there has been no difference in the way hes handled himself.

No, no. I think hes dealing very well with the pressure, the Serb said.

While Matic was happy the pressure was lifted somewhat with the win over Sean Dyches side, he insists that he has never doubted Mourinhos ability as a manager.

Of course it takes the pressure off us, he added.

He knows what hes doing for sure. You probably know that also. Its good for us.

Hes one of the best managers in the world. You know what he won in his career so that shows you everything.
