Juan Mata's free-kick was followed by Anthony Martial's equaliser, setting the stage for a 90th minute victor from Alexis Sanchez, who had been dropped by Mourinho before coming off the bench in the second half.
Sanchez's victor also saw United supporters, who had been muted in their backing for Mourinho to that point, sing his name out loud around Old Trafford.
Ever since speculation regarding the managerial post at Old Trafford began to circulate, an iconic Frenchman has seen his name put in the frame.
"I don't think he'll go to England, it's not his style", Migliaccio explained. To be 2-0 down at half-time against Newcastle at home was really bad.
"We needed to change something and when you have nothing to lose you just throw yourself blindly, let's say".
All three goals were in front of the Stretford End, goals which fans hope will be a turning point in United's bad season.

"He's on holiday mode", was how Lancombe described him recently, whilst his team also pointed out that Zidane is capitalising on his time away from the game.
"There's a reason United are the top club in the world, and that's because when we've been challenged, we've found solutions".
Kenedy and Muto put Newcastle 2 up in the first ten minutes of the game.
"We couldn't afford another defeat, we couldn't afford another disappointment, especially for the fans".
However, the dismal first-half was certainly not something Ferguson would've overseen, with Mourinho still very much under pressure despite the three points.
Mourinho moved Pogba into a deeper position in the second half after taking off midfielder, Scott McTominay at half-time, with midfielder, Nemanja Matic filling in at centre-back alongside, Chris Smalling. "I've got the feeling in the last few months that the club have retreated a little bit on him in the transfer market".
