"I think, not just a better manager, but it makes me even a better person because I understand things in the human nature nowadays and in the industry where I work", Mourinho said.
After weeks of speculation and scrutiny, the Daily Mirror reported on Friday evening the 55-year-old would be axed irrespective of the outcome of Saturday's Premier League clash with Newcastle.
"If Manchester United could hand pick any team to play this weekend it would be Newcastle", wrote Merson for Sky Sports.
Zinedine Zidane has emerged as a top target for the Red Devils but it is unlikely he will choose to in the middle of a season.
The former World Cup victor could also be key in unlocking the potential of fellow French man Paul Pogba, whom Mourinho reportedly fell out with amidst a string of poor performances.
Just when Jose Mourinho needed it most, Manchester United dug deep to pull off a gutsy victory for its under-fire manager. For example, Pogba is actually running further than ever before for the club.

The French man had a successful three years at PSG, winning a domestic double and back-to-back trebles in his three seasons, but his lack of European silverware led to perhaps a premature exit from the Parisien club.
Ferdinand went on to suggest the pressure on Mourinho will still be under pressure if he hangs on to his job during the global break, as he claimed the United manager has failed to find a winning formula in his third season at Old Trafford.
An outside bet, but one that isn't as outrageous as it may seem.
Much of the focus in the build up to the match centred on Mourinho's job - and he's certainly facing an uphill task to turn things around. I love that football club.
"At the end of the day this is now going on five or six years and I have to say that any manager - Jose Mourinho is one of the best managers in the world - and I think in this moment in time any manager would struggle in that football club, the way in which requirement is handled, the way in which it operates".
