Man Utd news LIVE: Pogba scraps new contract talks after refusing to speak to Solskjaer following Liverpool loss

MANCHESTER UNITED star 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.

And SunSport can reveal the World Cup winner has also shelved new contract talks, which had appeared to be going well a month ago.

Solskjaer meanwhile looks set to remain in the dugout for this weekend's match at Tottenham, but his future beyond that looks more uncertain.

Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on taking over at Old Trafford though the board are said to have reservations.

And PSG boss Mauricio Pochettino is said to retain a lot of support among the Old Trafford hierarchy.

  • PHIL ME IN

    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."

  • IN A JAM

    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."

  • KIDS PLAY

    He raged: "It is difficult to describe what I feel now. It hurts. It is not good enough.

    Neville told the Miami Herald: "I’ve played on (Manchester) 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.
