Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s son hit back at Jose Mourinho’s comments following Tottenham’s 3-1 loss to Manchester United.
Edinson Cavani’s disallowed goal in the first half has been one of the biggest talking points since Sunday’s game after Chris Kavanagh ruled that Scott McTominay had fouled Son Heung-min in the build-up to the goal after re-watching the incident on the touchline monitor.
Solskjaer blasted the South Korean after the game for staying down as long as he did and insisted that he would not have fed his own son if he had acted the same way as the Tottenham forward did.
Mourinho did not take kindly to the Norwegian’s comments and seemed to suggest that the reaction from the media would have been different had he said something similar about an opposition player.
The Tottenham boss also remarked that Son was lucky that his father was a better person than Solskjaer was.
Solskjaer’s son, Noah has now responded to Mourinho’s comments, stating that the Portuguese coach was simply trying to distract people from the fact that his side had been beaten.
He told Tidens Krav: “Yes, I laughed a lot on Sunday too. 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.
“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.”
