The pressure mounted on Jose Mourinho after Manchester United were humbled at the hands of Tottenham at Old Trafford.
Lucas Moura struck twice and Harry Kane notched his first goal at the Theatre of Dreams to give Spurs a 3-0 win to join Chelsea, Watford and Liverpool with three victories from three Premier League games.
Mourinho could only watch on as his defence crumbled in the second half despite a promising start to the match.
And the Portuguese stood in front of the Stretford End after the game for a prolonged period of time, applauding the fans that stayed until the end.
He even picked up a scarf that had been thrown on to the pitch as supporters returned the applause despite the defeat.
But fans think they know why Mourinho’s applause was so elongated.
They think he was saying goodbye.
Much has been made of Mourinho’s ‘third season syndrome’ in his previous managerial spells, and he is in his third year of his Old Trafford tenure.
After the game, he said: "All our fans don’t read papers. All our fans don’t watch TV, they are more intelligent.
"It isn’t normal for a team to lose at home and the supports react the way they did."
