Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has bashed a report stating that he snubbed Ole Gunnar Solskjaer after Manchester United's 5-0 defeat at the hands of Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Pogba was shown a red card during the game after he came on as a substitute at half-time.

According to a report in The Sun, Pogba apparently apologised to his team-mates but did not speak to manager Solskjaer and put talks of a new contract on hold after the game.

However, the French midfielder has now come out and openly bashed the report claiming it to be "Big lies to make headlines".

Earlier, Paul Pogba was rumoured to have ignored Ole Gunnar Solskjaer at the final whistle of Manchester United's humiliating 5-0 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday after the Norwegian benched the superstar for the clash.

The 28-year-old was a surprise omission from the starting lineup but endured a miserable second half cameo. He was at fault for the Reds' fifth goal of the afternoon and then saw red for a nasty challenge on Naby Keita, bringing an end to his 15-minute spell on the Old Trafford turf.

Recently, while speaking to The Times about his client, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola said: "You would have to ask Manchester United about it. At this moment everything is calm. There is no update."
