Manchester United continued their unbeaten away run in the league by registering a 3-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday.
The Red Devils’ away record was in danger during the break after they went 1-0 down in the first half after Son Heung-min gave the lead to the hosts.
Son scored the opener of the match just minutes after VAR and referee Chris Kavanagh ruled out Edinson Cavani’s first half goal as Scott McTominay’s hand caught the Korean’s face in the build-up.
The Spurs forward went down on the pitch and was seen surrounded by his teammates. This incident led to war of words between Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and José Mourinho after the final whistle.
“We shouldn’t be conned. I have to say, if my son stays down for three minutes and he needs his 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food,” the Manchester United manager said.
In response to Solskjaer’s comments, Mourinho said: “Sonny is very lucky his father is a better person than Ole. I am a father and as a father you have to always feed your kids, it doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal. I’m very, very disappointed.”
Noah Solskjaer, the son of the Red Devils manager has responded to the words from the Tottenham coach.
“Yes, I laughed well on Sunday. I always get food. I can assure everyone about that,” Noah told local newspaper Tidens Krav, as relayed by Dagbladet.
The 20-year-old currently represents Norwegian side Kristiansund BK and he was prepared for questions directed to him the next day in training.
“Yes, Max [Williamsen] asked me if I had been given food when he met me before training today. I had never been lying down the way Son did. Mourinho probably just wanted to take the focus away from the fact that they had lost,” Noah concluded.
