Speaking to Sky Sports, he said: “I have never seen a result like it before. Nothing compares to this result, nothing. I was embarrassed. It wasn’t a good watch.
“Manchester United versus Liverpool, the biggest game in the world, the biggest game in United’s season, and they lost it by a country mile.
“I don’t like seeing any manager get the sack but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is very fortunate to still be in a job. He’s as lucky as you can become as a manager.
“I don’t care what anybody says but if any other manager at any other club in Europe lost 5-0 at home to your biggest rivals, the manager is gone.
“If Chelsea or Arsenal lost 5-0 at home to Tottenham, the manager would do well to still be there on the Monday morning.
“Manchester United have won just one Premier League game in five, that just isn’t acceptable, and yet the manager has still got a job. I don’t know what’s going on at the club.”
