‘I always get food!’ – Noah Solskjaer takes swipes at Jose Mourinho and Son Heung-min

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s son, Noah, has waded into the row over Son Heung-min’s role in Manchester United’s disallowed goal against Tottenham and taken a swipe at Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils were denied an opening goal by VAR in Sunday’s 3-1 victory after Scott McTominay was penalised for putting his hand in Son’s face, with the South Korean then putting Spurs ahead.

United rallied impressively in the second half, netting three times, but Solskjaer was still livid with the disallowed goal afterwards and took aim at Son in his post-match interviews.

‘If my son stays down like this for three minutes and he gets his 10 mates around him to help him up, yeah, he won’t get any food,’ the United boss told Sky Sports.

‘I’m saying the same now as I did the first time we played them. We weren’t conned, the referee was.’

Mourinho was incensed by the comment, responding: ‘Sonny is very lucky that his father is a better person than Ole. Because as a father you have always to feed your kids, doesn’t matter what they do.

‘If you have to steal to feed your kids you steal. I’m very, very disappointed. With me, like we say in Portugal, bread is bread and cheese is cheese. I have told Ole already what I think about his comments.’

Now Noah Solskjaer, who plays for Kristiansund BK back in Norway, has reacted to the comments of both his father and Mourinho, criticising Son’s reaction and claiming the Spurs boss was just looking for a way to divert attention away from the defeat.

‘Yes, I laughed a lot on Sunday too,’ the youngster told local newspaper Tidens Krav when asked about the war of words between Solskjaer and Mourinho.

‘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.’

He continued: ‘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.’

The result leaves Spurs in seventh place in the Premier League table, six points adrift of the top four with seven games left to play, and the struggling north London club will probably need to win all their remaining games to stand a chance of qualifying for the Champions League.
