Paul Pogba has dismissed claims he snubbed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer following the defeat to Liverpool as ‘big lies’.

United are still reeling after Sunday’s devastating 5-0 defeat at home to arch-rivals Liverpool with Solskjaer’s position at the club under serious threat.

Pogba was left out of the starting XI that afternoon, coming off the bench at half-time with his side already 4-0 down. Just 15 minutes into the second period however, the France international was sent off after a lunge on Naby Keita.

The Sun have claimed Pogba apologised to his teammates for his mistake – but did not speak to Solskjaer in the dressing room.

The report also added the 28-year-old has put new contract talks on hold once again, with his current deal set to expire in the summer.

Pogba has now hit out at the report on social media, posting a screen shot of the article on Twitter with the caption ‘big lies to make headlines’.

Latest reports suggests Solskjaer will remain in charge for United’s next game which is away to Tottenham on Saturday evening.

United then face a trip to Atalanta for a fixture that could play a pivotal role in whether the club qualify for the knockout stages of the Champions League.

United then take on neighbours Manchester City where another result like the one against Liverpool could prove decisive.
