Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he’s “come too far”Man Utd to sack Liverpool loss


Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he’s “come too far”For him to leave his position.

The Norwegian saw his team suffer humiliating defeat at Old Trafford to Liverpool by 5-0.

He was asked after the game if the result had affected his decision to remain in the dugout.

Geoff Shreeves spoke amid increasing calls for his resignation.

The club legend says he is too far along in his career to be thrown out.

Solskjaer said: “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 are aware that we are at rock bottom. It is impossible to feel worse. Let’s find out where it takes us.”

He had said: “It’s difficult to say anything, except that it was the most difficult day of my life leading these players. We weren’t good enough as individuals and as a group, we can’t give Liverpool that chance but we did.

“The whole performance was not good enough. We created openings, they had chances and they have been clinical. The third goal decided the game.

“It is mine. The coaching staff is brilliant, excellent. The way I approach the game is what I chose. We were too clinical and allowed too many spaces, which can lead to good players scoring.

“We are at home, playing against Liverpool, we have gone here over the last two and half years and had a similar approach to high press but today they scored on their chances I think as Manchester United we should always try to stamp our authority on the game.

“The fourth goal is when you enter half-time with one goal every 15 minutes. They are capable, I know. It was likely game over for the fourth.

“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.”
