OLE Gunnar Solskjaer has admitted that Manchester United are at ‘rock bottom’ after the Reds’ heavy defeat against Liverpool.

United have struggled for form in the Premier League this season, but Sunday’s 5-0 defeat against Liverpool represents one of the worst days in the club’s history across the last decade – United’s fierce rivals simply humiliated them at Old Trafford.

Paul Pogba was sent off in the defeat and questions are being asked of the United boss, his personnel and the club’s hierarchy.

United’s captain Harry Maguire was the first to emerge after the game to apologise to supporters for the defeat, but Solskjaer soon followed and the Norwegian admitted that it was the ‘darkest day’ of his managerial reign at the club.

“It is not easy to say something apart from it is the darkest day I have had leading these players,” Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

“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 [responsibility], that is it. The coaching staff are very, very good, brilliant.”
