Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has attacked Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for what the Manchester United manager said about Son Heung-min following their crunch match on Sunday. United ran out 3-1 winners in north London after going 1-0 down in the first half.
But the game wasn’t without any major incidences with Edinson Cavani having a goal controversially ruled out in the first half.
Cavani neatly slotted his shot through the legs of Hugo Lloris after being played through by Paul Pogba.
However, VAR officials were taking a look at an incident earlier in the build up which left Son on the ground writhing around in agony.
Replays showed that Scott McTominay had scratched Son in the face as the United midfielder tried to create some space.
Referee Chris Kavanagh eventually ruled the goal out for the infringement to the dismay of the United bench.
Moments later and Son had opened the scoring for Tottenham to give them a 1-0 advantage heading into the break.
But United pulled it back in the second half with goals from Cavani, Fred and Mason Greenwood sealing all three points.
There were some fireworks in the post-match interviews though as Solskjaer suggested Son was play-acting when fouled by McTominay.
“If my son stayed down for three minutes and needed 10 mates to help him up, he wouldn’t get any food,” Solskjaer said.
Mourinho had heard the comments though and reacted furiously, insisting that Son is “lucky” not to have Solskjaer as his father.
“Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole,” Mourinho said.
“I think a father – I am a father – has to feed your kids.
“It doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal.
“I am very, very disappointed… like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese, I already told Ole what i think about his comments.
“I have to tell you that I am very disappointed that in five, six, seven questions you ignore the dimension of that comment.”
