Claim: BREAKING: Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been sacked by Manchester United following a 5-0 defeat at home to Liverpool.
Verdict: False, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has not been sacked by Manchester United though Ole admits that Manchester United is at ‘rock bottom’ but insists he’s still the right man for the job.

The “Manchester United Updates”- posted “Manchester United sacked Jose Mourinho after 3-1 Loss vs Liverpool, hired Ole who spent £450M in transfers, Only to lose 5-0 against Liverpool 3 years later.”
Verification: The Stage Media used reverse image Tineye, Google search and established that the claim is false.
Tineye search led us to four sources, Gipedo, Gazzetta, and two Twitter accounts.
Gazzetta link led us to a story on Nov 5, 2020,” Manchester United – Solskier: “I am to blame for these unforgivable mistakes” Gipedo link published on Nov 11, 2020, does not show that Ole is sacked.

At the same time, though Ole told Goal that Transfers that the club is at ‘rock bottom’ he has insisted that he’s still the right man for the job.
After Sunday’s game, Goal published a story that fans of the club want Ole to be sacked, but the club is yet to take the action.
