Phil Neville has supported his former teammate Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to turn things around at Manchester United following Sunday’s 5-0 win by Liverpool.

Solskjaer has been granted a stay of execution for fear of being fired after the humiliating result at Old Trafford.

United head to Tottenham on Saturday for what is now a must-win match with Solskjaer and their methods are under greater scrutiny than ever.

But he was supported by Inter Miami coach Neville, who played alongside him at United from 1996 to 2005.

‘I’ve played for United teams that lost 5-0,’ he told the Miami Herald.

‘These things happen in football. I think the sensationalism of it all is out of control now.

United lost a soccer match 5-0 to Liverpool. Yes, it hurt. Yes, it was probably a really disgusting blow to everyone who ever played, supported or was involved with Manchester United, but it is as if United have never lost 5-0 in their history.

‘This has happened and United recovered and won things. I lost at St James’ Park 5-0. Philippe Albert outperformed Peter Schmeichel and felt no different.

“The only difference was that there weren’t a billion people on Twitter thinking they knew better about this, that, and that.”
