Ole sack Live News: “I said it before that proper teams will batter Solskjaer’s Man Utd” – Neville said
Manchester United lost 5-0 to Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday, their biggest victory at Old Trafford.
Manchester United legend Gary Neville claims that Liverpool’s 5-0 victory at Old Trafford proves Manchester United’s defence can’t handle the Premier League elite.
Neville told Sky Sports: “This is the first super team they are playing against and they are getting pulled apart.
“I said it before, half decent teams are scoring goals against them, proper teams will batter them.”
Neville, however, urged his former club to resist calls for wholesale changes
He Insisted United’s main problems were on the pitch rather than off it.
‘On the pitch, it’s not good enough. I was a manager for four months” he added
“And I had a terrible time and this will put a massive pressure on him,‘
‘The last thing I would do is turn on his staff? Are we sacking his staff? If the muck hits the fan, everyone gets a bit.’
United were totally abject on Sunday, conceding two goals in the first 13 minutes as Naby Keita and Diogo Jota gave Liverpool the perfect start.
Mohamed Salah scored twice in seven minutes before the break
Liverpool became the first team in Premier League history to score four goals in the first 45 minutes at Old Trafford.
The defeat piled further pressure on Solskjaer, who admitted his team were at ‘rock bottom’ after the game
Souness suggested the Norwegian needed an expert hand to help him save his job.
‘Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s CV was managing Molde and managing Cardiff and he gets the biggest job in world football on the basis of that,’ he said.
‘That will tell you he needs someone with him.
‘He’s been there three years and it’s not working”
“It’s not getting through to the players. Someone has to get the message across.’
