Liverpool’s record 5-0 win at Man Utd: Solskjaer at ‘rock bottom’

Gary Neville has refuted claims that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has lost the Manchester United dressing room following their defeat by Liverpool.

Jurgen Klopp’s men humiliated the Red Devils on their own patch as Mohamed Salah’s sensational hat-trick secured a resounding 5-0 victory.

Old Trafford chiefs have made it clear they will back the Norwegian as pressure mounts on the boss.

But a report from ESPN claims he is losing support in the dressing room in the wake of Sunday’s horror result.

It states a “sizeable number of his squad” believes he isn’t the man to take the club forward due to Man United’s well-documented struggles in defence and his failure to play the likes of Jesse Lingard, Donny van de Beek and Nemanja Matic with “favoritism” for under-performing players.

It’s also claimed that senior figures are frustrated with Solskjaer’s inability to get Cristiano Ronaldo and Mason Greenwood on the same wavelength as they struggle to link up effectively.

Teammates have realised they don’t pass to each other often and Ronaldo is “irritated” by the youngster’s decision-making.

But Neville, who has openly admitted he won’t call for his former teammate to be sacked, isn’t buying into that notion.

He said on Twitter : “Here we go! The players PR and Social Media Teams working hard!”

Neville was shellshocked at the manner of the defeat by Liverpool as they raced to a 4-0 lead in the first half with relative ease.

But he still reckons Solskjaer will have the job until the end of the season.

He said: “I didn’t think it would get as bad as this. Today was a shocker and the timing couldn’t be worse and it’s been building.

“As soon as they (United) played a proper team they got torn to pieces, dismantled. You can’t flick a switch in football. They are one of the lowest running teams in the league and there’s nothing worse than being told you’re one of the lowest running teams and you’re easy to play against – they’re both.

“That’s a poor reflection on the manager, staff and players. I watched the Leicester game back and tried to figure out what they’re being told. They’ve got no structure to press from and don’t run as much as other teams and are easy to play against.

If this was post-Sir Alex [Ferguson] aftermath, Ole would be in massive trouble tonight. I think the club will hold their nerve and I don’t think they’ve planned for another manager this season and they’ll sit with Ole til the end of the season.

“There will be a massive outcry from fans and media from everybody that he should be sacked and I can understand why after that game.

“I’ve seen Jose Mouriho and [Louis] Van Gaal come in and was disappointed. I never asked for Ron Atkinson (to be sacked), I didn’t want Moyes to be sacked.

“The reason the club will go at the end of the season, they won’t bring a hitman in. They will stick with Ole and he has to win something this season.”
