Manchester United came from behind against Tottenham Hotspur to run out 3-1 winners in the Premier League. Son opened the scoring for Mourinho’s men before second-half goals from Fred, Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood inflicted another damaging defeat on Tottenham’s chances of a top-four finish in the Premier League.

Manchester United were however denied a clear goal after VAR ruled it out for a foul against Son in the build up to it. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer was not pleased with the call despite coming out of the match with all 3 points.

Chris Kavanagh awarded Tottenham a free-kick for a foul by Scott McTominay as he made minimal contact with Son’s face in the build-up. Solskjaer spoke on the incident after the match and Jose Mourinho hit back at the Manchester United boss for his ill directed comments at Hueng-Min Son.

“If my son stays down like this for three minutes and needs his 10 mates to help him up, he won’t get any food,” said Solskjaer of the South Korean international, who was back on his feet to open the scoring four minutes later. “We weren’t (conned), the referee was.”

Mourinho took issue with journalists at his post-match press conference for not asking for his reaction to Solskjaer’s comments.

“If it is 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?” asked Mourinho.

“I think it is really sad you don’t ask me about me about it. I think it is really sad you don’t have the moral honesty to treat me the same way you treat others. In relation to that, I just want to say that Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole.

“Because I think a father, I am a father, you have always to feed your kids it doesn’t matter what they do. If you have to steal to feed your kids, you steal.”
