Ole Gunnar Solskjaer says he will not quit as Manchester United manager even after the Norwegian suffered his “darkest day” in football against Liverpool.

A hat-trick from Mo Salah and goals from Diogo Jota and Naby Keita condemned United to their worst-ever home defeat to their great rivals.

The capitulation at Old Trafford will increase the pressure on Solskjaer, whose side appear to be regressing at an alarming rate. Yet the Norwegian insists he is still the right man for the job.

“I’ve come too far, we’ve come too far, we’re too close to give up now,” he said.

Only once – in 1895 – have United lost this fixture by a greater margin. And Solskjaer, a cornerstone of one of the great United sides in the 1990s, admits he and his side have hit “rock bottom” following the devastating loss.

“It’s not easy to say something apart from it’s the darkest day I’ve had leading these players,” he added. “We weren’t good enough, individually, as a team, can’t give a team like Liverpool them chances and unfortunately we did.

“I understand human nature, players are going to be low, you look into the eyes, the character, we know we’re rock bottom, can’t feel any worse than this, see where we can take it.”

Solskjaer’s captain Harry Maguire issued a grovelling apology to United’s fans in the aftermath of a defeat which is likely to leave long-lasting scars. “First and foremost, apologies to the fans, it’s nowhere near good enough for this club,” he said.

“We all spoke in the dressing room – obviously I’m here because I have to be here, the only real thing I’ve got to say is we apologise to the fans, it’s nowhere near good enough.

“They stuck with us right to the end, even when it was 5-0, they were singing, and we appreciate that. It wasn’t good enough.”

United legend Gary Neville made the rare admission that Solskjaer could be damaged by the defeat. “Ole is under massive pressure,” he said, while Jamie Carragher branded United’s shambolic back-line – who shipped four first half goals – as “Keystone Cops” defending.

“I’m not trying to be clever, but I don’t think Liverpool were at their absolute best,” the Telegraph Sport columnist said on Sky Sports.

“Whenever they made passes, and got in and around the back four – it’s a joke of a back four the way they’re playing at the moment – they were just a mess, Keystone Cops type defending.”
