Jose Mourinho couldn’t resist a dig at Manchester United following the side’s controversial win against Brighton on Saturday.

Bruno Fernandes gave United all three points with the final kick of the game on the south coast, after the referee awarded a spot kick for a handball on Neal Maupay.

However, the decision was made in controversial circumstances as the final whistle had already been blown following the handball, meaning the game had to be restarted in order for Fernandes to take the kick.

United host Spurs at Old Trafford next Sunday, which will be just the second time Mourinho will be back at the club following his sacking in December 2018.

Mourinho stormed down the tunnel after Spurs conceded a last minute goal to Newcastle on Sunday and the Portuguese has stoked the fire ahead of his return to the Theatre of Dreams by taking a dig at his former club.

‘At some clubs, even after the last whistle, it’s possible for something important to happen, but for us I knew that after the last whistle it was over,’ said Mourinho.

It’s the latest in a growing list of digs that Mourinho has taken against his former employers.

Solskjaer made a jovial comment after the win against Brighton on Saturday that Mourinho will check the dimensions of the goal frame next week, after the Seagulls hit the woodwork on five occasions in their 3-2 defeat.

The comment was in reference to the fact that Mourinho filed a complaint to UEFA ahead of Spurs’ win against KF Shkëndija in Macedonia on Thursday as the side were using smaller goals.

However, Mourinho took exception to the Norwegian’s comments and aimed a jibe back at Solskjaer by saying the United boss is only concerned with the size of the 18-yard box, which was a dig at the amount of penalties that the Red Devils are awarded.
