Man Utd fans call for Solskjaer sacking after Liverpool humiliation, the Red Devils boss reluctant to quit

Solskjaer hits out at Frank Lampard and Jose Mourinho

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been receiving immense criticism following Manchester United’s 5-0 loss to Liverpool at Old Trafford in the Premier League.

There were huge expectations on the Red Devils following their dramatic comeback win against Atalanta in the Champions League. However, Jurgen Klopp’s side showed no mercy to the home side, with Mohamed Salah stealing the show again with a hat-trick.

The defeat has left Man Utd winless in their last four league games and they are currently seventh in the table with 14 points.

Solskjaer has entered the spotlight once again and the Old Trafford faithful want him to be sacked at once.

Perhaps, the Norwegian manager has often received criticism this season after poor results against Young Boys, West Ham, Aston Villa and Leicester City.

Here’s how the fans lashed out at Solskjaer on Twitter via Goal following the defeat against the Reds.

Solsskjaer feels he is the ideal person to lead the Red Devils.

Post the 5-0 defeat, Solskjaer admitted the United had hit rock bottom and took the fall for the result.

The Norwegian said (h/t Goal): “It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players. We were not good enough individually and as a team, [we] can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances but unfortunately we did.

“[The responsibility] is mine, that is it. The coaching staff are very, very good, brilliant. I choose the way we approach the game, we were not clinical enough and gave too much space and when you give good players space they score.

“I know these boys are capable of it. You can look at last season, we lose to Spurs 6-1. This is worse, miles worse. This is miles worse for me as a Manchester lad. I’ve just got to say we have to get over this as quickly as we can.”

Solskjaer also added that he had come too far and although United are in a deep crisis, he is not ready to give up.

The Red Devils gaffer added: “I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now. It is going to be a difficult one.

“The players will be low but there’s loads of characters there. We know we are rock bottom, we can’t feel any worse than this. Let’s see where we take it.”
