Angry Mourinho hits back at Solskjaer

English Premier League

Jose Mourinho has reacted angrily to Ole Gunnar Solskajer's remarks about Son Heung-min following Manchester United's victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

Spurs forward Son was at the centre of the action on Sunday as his side succumbed to a disappointing 3-1 to the Red Devils at home, having led through the South Korean star's opening goal at half-time.

However, the biggest talking point came prior to the 28-year-old's strike when, earlier in the half, United had a goal disallowed after Scott McTominay was deemed to have fouled Son in the build-up to Edinson Cavani tucking home.

The referee's decision to disallow the goal, which was made following consultation with the Video Assistant Referee, drew the ire of Soslkjaer who suggested that the Spurs forward had made the most of the challenge in order to influence the officials.

"I have to say, if my son stays down like this for three minutes and gets 10 of his mates around him… if he gets that in the face from one of his other mates and he needs 10 of his mates to help him up, he won't get any food," Solskjaer told Sky Sports.

However, his comments were not well received by former United boss Mourinho, who launched an angry tirade against the Norwegian coach and the present media in his post-match press conference.

"Let me tell you something. I am very, very surprised that after the comments that Ole made on Sonny, you don't ask me about it," the former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid boss said.

"And I told Ole this already, because I met him just a few minutes ago. 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,' or something like that, what would be the reaction?

"It is very, very sad. I think it's really sad that you don't ask me about it. It's really sad that you don't have the moral honesty to treat me the same way you treat others.

"I just want to say, Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole, because I think a father - I am 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 am very, very disappointed, and like we say in Portugal bread is bread and cheese is cheese, I told Ole already what I think about his comments."

In an unrelated situation, Spurs have also announced that the club will hold a social media review after Son was racially abused, seemingly in reaction to his performance, on online platforms following the match.

"Another matchday and more abhorrent racial abuse suffered by one of our players," the North London side said in an official statement.

"This has again been reported to the platforms and we shall now undertake a full review alongside the Premier League to determine the most effective action moving forward. We stand with you, Sonny."
