Man Utd news LIVE: Pogba-Solskjaer snub EXCLUSIVE, Conte wants United job but board 'not keen' – transfer latest updates

MANCHESTER UNITED midfielder Paul Pogba SNUBBED Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the aftermath of his side's defeat to Liverpool last weekend, SunSport can reveal.

The United manager could only watch on as his side were humiliated 5-0 by Liverpool, as Pogba was also sent off in the game.

The Frenchman apologised to his team-mates in the dressing room at full-time, but failed to speak to manager Solskjaer.

Rumours have swirled about the Norwegian's future, but he looks set to be in charge for United's match with Tottenham on Saturday.

And that's despite Italian manager Antonio Conte's apparent interest in the Red Devils job.

    United boss Solskjaer is set to stay in charge for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Tottenham.

    But another damaging defeat by Spurs could change that.

    There are fears within the club that the atmosphere at training has become flat, with players uninspired by the coaching sessions.

    And group managing director Richard Arnold is on a mission to discover what has gone wrong on the pitch after starting to take on some of Ed Woodward’s responsibilities.

    Phil Neville is backing Ole Gunnar Solskajer to turn things around at Man Utd.

    The Inter Miami boss said: "I’ve played on United teams that lost 5-0.

    "These things happen in football. I think the sensationalism of everything now is just out of control.

    “United lost a game of football 5-0 to Liverpool. Yes, it hurt. Yes, it was probably a real sickening blow for everybody that’s ever played, supported, or been involved with Manchester United- but it’s as if United has never lost 5-0 ever in history.

    "This has happened and United bounced back and won things. I lost at St James' Park 5-0. Philippe Albert chipped Peter Schmeichel and it felt no different. T

    "he only difference was there was not a billion people on Twitter thinking they knew best about this, that and the other.

    “We live in an era where it’s seen as quite normal to ask people to be sacked, which I find absolutely incredible."

    Man Utd legend Patrice Evra has revealed he dreaded facing James Milner – and took weeks to recover after playing against the Liverpool star.

    Evra told The Times: "I bore no grudges against opponents — apart from James Milner.

    "I hated to play against him. He defended more than me, and he wasn’t a defender.

    "He worked harder than any player. I couldn’t breathe when I got the ball because he was always about to tackle me.

    "I needed two weeks to recover after playing against him.

    "I used to check which club he was playing for at the start of the season.

    "When he joined City, with better players around him, there was even less space for me – he followed me everywhere.

    "I even had to check he wasn’t in my car when I left the ground."

    Newcastle are reportedly ‘willing to make Erik ten Hag one of the highest-paid managers’ in the Premier League.

    The Daily Mail claims Man Utd face serious competition from Newcastle for the 51-year-old Dutchman.

    Toon are already allegedly exploring the prospect of luring Ten Hag to St James' Park.

    And today’s report states they would be willing to hand him ‘a salary of £6million after tax – totalling a gross wage of just over £11m’ to take over.

    That would put Ten Hag just behind £20m-a-year Man City boss Pep Guardiola and Liverpool’s £15m-a-year in the list of the Premier League’s best-paid managers.

    "Ole was on the bench when Ronaldo played. A peer. Not enough.

    "Love and respect Ole to the max but his role needs rearranged. My opinion."

    Sky Germany have rubbed salt in Jadon Sancho’s wounds by mocking his dire stats for Manchester United – 007 style.

    Now Sky Germany have decided to join in by mocking him up as James Bond as they looked at his numbers.

    Focusing on his Prem stats, they cruelly poked fun at him by stating his zero goals and zero assists followed by his seven appearances.

    They were accompanied by an image of the ace dressed up as the much-loved Bond character, played by Hollywood star Daniel Craig recently in the latest ‘No Time To Die’ instalment, suited and booted.
