Solskjaer rules out resigning as Man United boss

Following Manchester United's 5-0 loss to Liverpool this afternoon, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has ruled out the option of stepping down as manager.

On a dismal night at Old Trafford, the Red Devils were humiliated to their biggest ever home defeat at the hands of Liverpool, and their first home defeat by five or more goals since 1955.

Solskjaer's team trailed 4-0 at halftime, the Premier League's greatest half-time deficit ever, before Mohamed Salah added a fifth early in the second half, which also saw Paul Pogba sent off.

The outcome is likely to increase the pressure on Solskjaer, who was questioned about his job after his team's 4-2 loss to Leicester City in their previous Premier League match, but the Norwegian has ruled out resigning.

When asked whether the result has caused any doubt in his mind about his suitability for the job, Solskjaer told Sky Sports News: "No. I've come too far, we've come too far as a group. We're too close to give up now."
