Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho traded words with each other after the highly controversial game away at Spurs over the weekend.
Son Heung-min had played a role in the controversy, as his dive led to VAR overturning Manchester United’s early goal by Edinson Cavani.
Speaking after the game, Solskjaer in response to the dive by Son told Sky Sports: “If my son stays down like this for three minutes and he gets his 10 mates around him to help him up, yeah, he won’t get any food.
“I’m saying the same now as I did the first time we played them. We weren’t conned, the referee was.”
Mourinho then responded to Solskjaer by claiming that Son Heung-min is lucky not to have the Manchester United boss as a father.
Mourinho said: “Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole. Because as a father you have always to feed your kids, doesn’t matter what they do.
“If you have to steal to feed your kids you steal. I’m very, very disappointed. With me, like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese. I have told Ole already what I think about his comments.”
Meanwhile, Solskjaer’s son Noah, who plays for Kristiansund BK in Norway, has reacted to the comments of both his father and Mourinho. He gave a hilarious reply to the incident and then claimed that Mourinho was only looking to divert attention away from his team’s defeat.
“Yes, I laughed a lot on Sunday too,” Noah told local newspaper Tidens Krav when asked about the war of words between Solskjaer and Mourinho.
“I always get food, I can assure everyone about that.
“‘[Teammate] Max [Williamsen] asked me if I had been given food when he met me before training today.”
He added: “I have never been lying down the way Son did.
“Mourinho probably just wanted to take the focus away from the fact they had lost.”
