Neville reacts to Old Trafford embarrassment as Mo Salah scores hat-trick in 5-0 Liverpool thumping: “The board have made everyone aware that they are steadfast in their support of the manager and that he stays. Results like this undermine that, there’s no doubt. This is sobering””This has been a monstrous day for Manchester United,” said Neville. “They have been obliterated. That was unacceptable.”

Solskjaer’s side were humiliated by their old foes as Liverpool stormed to a 4-0 lead at half-time – and Old Trafford further emptied as Mohamed Salah completed his hat-trick shortly after the restart.

Naby Keita had set the tone for a bruising afternoon with just five minutes on the clock, before Diogo Jota struck again inside the opening 15 minutes, and Sky Sports’ Neville said a result compounded by Paul Pogba’s red card shortly after his introduction from the bench would see Solskjaer take “an absolute battering”.

“The pressure after this game is going to be intolerable in some quarters,” the former Manchester United captain said on co-commentary during the Super Sunday thrashing.”The board have made everyone aware that they are steadfast in their support of the manager and that he stays. Results like this undermine that, there’s no doubt. This is sobering.

“Manchester United need to change. I believe Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to get the opportunity to change. But there is going to be pressure from every source.”

Neville continued: “There’s no doubt the manager will get an absolute battering. There will be calls for his head like you wouldn’t believe but you wonder what this defeat will do to the players. How will they pick themselves up?

“There’s no hiding place after this. United are going to be absolutely demoralised. The next 24 hours is going to be as hot as it has ever been at this football club.” Read More
