Ole Gunnar Solskjaer exacted revenge for Manchester United’s hammering at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur at Old Trafford earlier this season with a convincing 3-1 win at the Tottenham Hotspur stadium.
While a loss which widened the gap to points 14 points between the two sides must’ve hurt Jose Mourinho, he seemed more unhappy with his counterpart’s comments after the full-time whistle.
The visitors were left bemused after Edinson Cavani’s goal was ruled out in the first-half. After a lengthy VAR review, referee Chris Kavanagh penalised Scott McTominay for fouling Heung-Min Son in the build-up to the Uruguayan’s opener.
Solskjaer let his disappointment be known in his post-match interview, criticising the Spurs forward for his supposed play-acting.
The Norwegian told Sky Sports: “We shouldn’t be conned. I have to say, if my son stays down for three minutes and he needs his ten mates to help him up, he won’t get any food.”
As expected, the Portuguese gaffer was ‘fuming’ with Solskjaer’s comments, slamming the current United manager for his jibe at Son.
🗣 “Son is very lucky his father is a better person than Ole.”

The 28-year-old, who scored the hosts’ only goal of the game, will certainly appreciate the support of his boss. However, if results don’t start going in Spurs’ favour soon, Mourinho could lose the dressing room for good.
