Man Utd news LIVE: Zidane the ‘preferred option’ to replace Solskjaer with Conte in frame, Ronaldo storms down tunnel


Manchester United legend Gary Neville does not believe Manchester United will sack Ole Gunnar Solskjaer despite their 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool.

He said: “I don’t think they’re close to winning the league, I don’t think they’re close to winning the Champions League, I don’t think they’re close to Liverpool, Man City or Chelsea at the moment.

“It’s painful watching that interview. We’ve seen managers, and I’ve been there for a short period, have to field questions like that, and it’s not great but it’s part of the game, it’s what you’re there for.

“You’re at Manchester United, it’s a big boys’ game, it’s a big boys’ club and you lose a game against Liverpool 5-0 at home, you’re going to come under horrific pressure.

“What I’ve got no doubts is that the club is different today, if this was in the media post-Sir Alex Ferguson aftermath, Ole would be in massive trouble tonight.

“I think the club will hold their nerve, I don’t think they’ve planned for a new manager in this season, I think they’ll get to the end of the season, I think they’ll sit with Ole until the end of the season.”
