Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has explained why he won’t resign as Manchester United manager following his team’s embarrassing defeat to Liverpool.

The Red Devils were thrashed 5-0 by Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool on a humbling afternoon for 20-time English champions Man United and their under-fire manager Solskjaer.

The emphatic defeat will inevitably lead to increased pressure on club legend Solskjaer, who has largely struggled since replacing Jose Mourinho as Manchester United boss in December 2018.

United have not won any silverware under Solskjaer and the club are now just seventh in the Premier League, but the Norwegian boss insists he will not step down.

‘I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now,’ Solskjaer said.

‘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.’
