Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘won’t give up’ after Manchester United thrashing by Liverpool

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he has “come too far to give up now” despite overseeing Sunday’s 5-0 thrashing at the hands of Liverpool at Old Trafford.

Mohamed Salah claimed a hat-trick while Naby Keita and Diogo Jota also scored in the Reds’ dominant win.

Solskjaer said the loss is his “darkest day” as a manager but will carry on.

“We know we are rock bottom, we can’t feel any worse than this. Let’s see where we take it,” he told Sky Sports.

“I have come too far, we have come too far as a group. We are too close to give up now.”

Asked how he will pick the players up, he added: “It is going to be a difficult one. The players will be low but there’s loads of characters.

The victory was Liverpool’s biggest win at Old Trafford in their history and set a number of unwanted landmarks as far as Manchester United were concerned.

It was their biggest loss in this fixture since October 1895, when Liverpool beat them 7-1 at Anfield, and was the first time they have lost by a margin of five or more goals at Old Trafford without scoring themselves since 1955.

Many Manchester United fans left at half time with the home side 4-0 down.

The home side conceded only once more after the break but also had Paul Pogba sent off just 15 minutes after he had come on as a substitute.

“It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players,” added Solskjaer, who took over as manager in 2018.

“We were not good enough individually and as a team – you can’t give a team like Liverpool those chances, but unfortunately 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.”

Real Madrid Stun Manchester City With Historic Comeback

Real Madrid Stun Manchester City With Historic Comeback

Manchester City suffered one of the most remarkable Champions League collapses as Real Madrid came back from the abyss to set up a final showdown with Liverpool.

City were two goals ahead on aggregate going into the 90th minute after Riyad Mahrez’s strike had added to their 4-3 first-leg win last week.

And then Rodrygo happened.

The Brazilian substitute turned home Karim Benzema’s left-wing ball from close range in the final minute – with Real’s very first shot on target.

And 90 seconds later he levelled the tie with a header into the top corner after Marco Asensio flicked on Dani Carvajal’s cross.

That sent an already rowdy Bernabeu into absolute euphoria.

City, who thought they were going through to a second consecutive all-English Champions League final, were shell-shocked.

Both sides had chances to win the tie before the full-time whistle. Ederson denied Rodrygo a quick-fire hat-trick and then an unmarked Phil Foden fired over inside the box.

And so to extra time the game went – and it was Real who got the decisive goal in maybe the greatest Champions League semi-final ever.

Benzema beat Ruben Dias to a loose ball in the box and was brought down by the City defender. He stepped up to take the penalty himself and scored his 43rd goal of the season. There is no doubt it is the most important.

Real’s Thibaut Courtois, who was by far the busier keeper, tipped away Foden’s header with Fernandinho inches away from scoring the rebound – but City could not find a goal to send it to penalties.

That sets up a repeat of the most memorable Champions League final of recent years, when Real beat Liverpool 3-1 in 2018.

For City and manager Pep Guardiola now, the Premier League title – they sit one point above Liverpool with four games to go – is their only target.
