Jose Mourinho was far from impressed by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s comments about Heung-min Son following the final whistle this evening against Manchester United.

The Red Devils took the lead through Edinson Cavani in the first-half only to have it chalked off by VAR after Scott McTominay was adjudged to have caught Son in the face in the build-up.

After the Spurs man was caught, he stayed down holding his face for the entire Man United attack, goal and beyond, something that seemed to annoy Solskjaer.

In his post-match interview, the Man United boss claimed that if Son were his son and stayed down for three minutes, he would not get any food.

Mourinho hit out at the media for not having the ‘moral honesty’ to ask him about Solskjaer’s comments, while also criticising the Man United head coach for the words themselves.

Spurs eventually took the lead after the incident but lost 3-1 to three second-half Man United goals.

Mourinho said (Jonathan Veal): “If it’s me, telling that player A, B or C from another club, if it was my son I wouldn’t give him dinner tonight, what would be the reaction of that?

“It is very, very sad, it is really sad that you don’t have the moral honesty treat me the same way as others.”

“Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole. Because a father you always have to feed their kids, no matter what they do.

“I am very, very disappointed. Bread is bread, cheese is cheese. I told Ole what I think about his colleague.”
