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

Manchester United managing director Richard Arnold has reportedly cancelled all appointments today in order to hold urgent talks with Joel Glazer.

The Red Devils suffered a 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool on Sunday leaving manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer under serious pressure.

According to The Guardian, Arnold has made room in his busy schedule for talks with co-owner Glazer regarding their plan of action.

It is claimed that several players are questioning whether Solskjaer is capable of taking them any further whilst Antonio Conte would be open to discussing taking the role.

Despite being well-liked by the squad and club, Solskjaer’s tactical shortcomings have been called into question after their latest big defeat.

Whilst last week they were committed to Solskjaer, United chiefs are reported to now be seriously considering his future.

Speaking after their defeat to Liverpool, Solskjaer shouldered responsibility but insisted the time is not right for him to leave his role.

Asked after the game if he is feeling the pressure, Solskjaer said: “No. I’ve come too far, we’ve come too far as a group to give up now.”

The Norwegian was honest after the full-time whistle, conceding his side were not up to the task.

“It’s not easy to say something apart from it’s the darkest day I’ve had leading these players. We weren’t good enough individually or as a team,” Solskjaer explained.

“It is the worst feeling. The feeling that we are getting to where we want to be has been there. Last few weeks we have hit a brick wall. We have conceded too many easy goals.

“That is a concern. This is the lowest I have been. I accept the responsibility. That is mine today.

“I do believe in myself and I am getting close to what we want at the club. The results lately haven’t been good enough. Hands up. Next week is Tottenham away. Then Atalanta. Then Man City. We have to go into this with the right frame of mind.

Solskajer went on to issue everyone associated with the club a rally cry, explaining: “The time is now. Man Utd have had difficult times before and we have always bounced back. We have started this season badly. We have hit a brick wall. We need to start building results – and get clean sheets.”
