Man United hero Phil Neville has slammed calls by a section of fans to have Ole Gunnar Solskjaer shown the door at Old Trafford.

Phil suggested social media is playing a central role in ramping up calls for managers to get sacked and wants Ole to be given time to steady the United ship.

The former defender went on to claim this was not the first time the Red Devils had lost a match by a 5-0 and fans are only creating a fuss out of it.

Phil told that it was not the first time such would happen The Sun.

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